Movement for Me and Sports Literacy

ASRAB invites you to join our Movement for Me classes that teach members a variety of physical literacy skills such as balancing, hopping, skipping, throwing, catching and much more! Physical literacy is the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge, and understanding of movement for engagement in physical activities for life. These skills are the building blocks that are essential for a successful transition into sport and physical activities.

The Sport Literacy Program is an additional tier to the Movement for Me program and is for previous students who have mastered the fundamental movement skills and are ready for more of a challenge. This program introduces sport specific skills that will set up members for success in recreational or sports activities. Please inquire via e-mail to verify if your child is ready for this program.
