The skills you need to be physically literate

The Australian Sports Commission has identified the physical, psychological, social and cognitive skills people can work on to develop their physical literacy.

Keep in mind:

  • you don’t need to master them all
  • you can choose a few skills to work on at a time
  • what you focus on will depend on your current skills, circumstances and goals

This holistic learning enables people to draw on these integrated skills to lead healthy and fulfilling lives through movement and physical activity.
