Together with Saskatchewan in motion we're engaging in a community action process to weave physical literacy into our community's very essence!

Physical literacy can be defined as "the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge, and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement of physical activities for life". A child who is physically literate moves competently and confidently in a variety of different environments (i.e., land, snow, or water) with a variety of movement skills (i.e., swimming, running, throwing, and jumping).

* 25. Given the above definition, how important is it for your community to support and provide opportunities to develop physical literacy? Please rate by using the following scale of 0 to 5 (0 = not at all, 5 = very important):
