Jen talks Physical Literacy



Jump teaches physical literacy, a combination of fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills. With these skills kids have a foundation to explore and enjoy different sports and physical activities keeping them active for life.

In this video, Jennifer Hood, Owner and Director of Jump, explains physical literacy and why she believes it’s essential learning for every child.


Canadian Sport For Life
Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) is a movement to improve the quality of sport and physical activity in Canada. CS4L links sport, education, recreation and health and aligns community, provincial and national programming. LTAD is a seven-stage training, competition and recovery pathway guiding an individual’s experience in sport and physical activity from infancy through all phases of adulthood.
Active for Life
Active for Life is the place where parents go to learn about how to make a difference in the health and happiness of their children. Research shows there’s a right way and a right time to develop the fundamental movement and sport skills that benefit kids for their entire lives. Learning these basic movement and sports skills is known as becoming physically literate.
