The Movement Park sporting structure is aligned to a long-term People Development framework which has been developed with the intention of increasing overall participation in sport and physical activity. The framework takes into account individual ability, through a multi-stage pathway guiding an individual's journey through sport and physical activity from infancy to adulthood.
This framework has been developed from the Canadian Sport 4 Life LTPD (Long-Term Player Development) or LTAD (Long-Term Athlete Development) models but at Movement Park, we believe that it’s the people that become the players/athletes and so it is ‘people’ that are important.
Through this framework, Movement Park is trying to build competence and confidence which in turn leads to motivation to participate in life-long sport.

DEFINITION OF PHYSICAL LITERACY
“PHYSICAL LITERACY IS THE MOTIVATION, CONFIDENCE, PHYSICAL COMPETENCE, KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING TO VALUE AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ENGAGEMENT IN PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES FOR LIFE” – INTERNATIONAL PHYSICAL LITERACY ASSOCIATION
Just as a child must learn the ABC’s before spelling words and learn 1, 2, 3’s before understanding how to count, over time a child must develop Physical Literacy. In fact, physical activity is a lot more enjoyable when one is physically literate. To be physically active for life, children and young people must build confidence and competence. Physical Literacy is much more than skill development. It is providing opportunities for children and young people to feel comfortable trying new activities, creating experiences that are fun and challenging. Physical Literacy is essential to living a happy healthy life! Over the next three years, Movement Park will focus their attention on the Physical Literacy stages within the Long Term People Development model.
