The Canadian Assessment of Physical Literacy (CAPL) can help you support and develop physical literacy among children 8 to 12 years old. CAPL supports the newly created Physical Literacy Consensus Statement. 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. It’s a necessary element in setting children up with the skills they need to live an active life.

To support and foster children on their physical literacy journeys, it is important to assess where their individual physical literacy levels stand. The CAPL is the first comprehensive tool that can accurately and reliably assess a broad spectrum of skills and abilities that contribute to and characterize a child’s physical literacy level.
