U3 P.L.A.Y.

P.L.A.Y. with Me 

Sessions are for children who turn three this calendar year and their parents. The on-field, 1-on-1 participation of a parent is required during the weekly activities, which are intended to develop Physical Literacy and introduce families to the basics of Play with a ball while working on ABCs (Agility, Balance, and Coordination).

NOTE: Parents of children who turn three this year and are able to play with minimal or without parent participation may prefer to participate in U4.

Physical Literacy

Physical Literacy is when children have developed the skills and confidence to participate in many different physical activities and sports. Fundamental movement skills such as throwing, catching, running, and jumping are the beginning of physical literacy.

Physical Literacy is important because it gives kids the confidence to stay active for life. It is not about being a “superstar athlete” – everyone can learn fundamental movement skills, and everyone can become physically literate! Preschool is the perfect time to start! P.L.A.Y. takes place on our field behind Stoney Creek Baptist Church on Saturday mornings. A NorWest P.L.A.Y. representative will offer an 8-week unit designed to develop physical literacy using the ball whenever possible. At the end of each session, kids will have enjoyed a series of fun activities, and they will have taken one more step in developing the physical literacy needed to play soccer and become successful in many other pursuits!
