PL 101: Indigenous Lens - Virtual Workshop Overview

With guidance from and co-facilitated by I·SPARC (Indigenous Sport Physical Activity Recreation Council), this workshop provides an Indigenous lens and perspective to physical literacy. Workshop attendees will be introduced to the concept of the Holistic Model and the Indigenous Long-Term Participant Development Pathway and how it ties into physical literacy and supporting participants to becoming Active for Life. Through interactive group discussion, and sharing of ideas and resources, attendees will gain insight as to how some Indigenous communities have incorporated physical literacy into their programming while ensuring that mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of participants are being met in support of healthy lifestyles and positive outcomes.

Physical activity is a lot more fun when you are physically literate. Now more than ever, physical literacy is being recognized as an important component of best practices in the sport, recreation, health and education sectors within Canada. Unfortunately, not everyone knows or understands what exactly physical literacy is.

Please keep an eye on your inbox, reminder and Zoom Link will be sent to you 2 days prior to workshop.
