Who is Physical Literacy for Life?
Physical Literacy for Life is a registered charitable organization focused on developing physical literacy throughout the lifespan in multiple settings and sectors.
Physical Literacy for Life is a charitable organization that evolved from the 60 Minute Kids’ Club to take on a broader mandate of physical literacy development throughout the lifespan in multiple settings.
