What’s Happening with Physical Literacy in Kingston?

Kingston Gets Active Month Every April and September

Successful Funding to Support a More Active Community

Kingston Gets Active and partners are pleased to announce successful funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.  There will be project-funded events, programming and training opportunities.  We are proud recipients of a RBC Learn to Play Project grant, which is funded by RBC and the Public Health Agency of Canada and delivered by ParticipACTION.  We are also grateful for the Ontario Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Sport for funding received last year through the Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund. Funding goes towards projects that will support Kingston residents to become and stay physically active for life.  Check our website for more information!

Experts agree that physical literacy is just as important as reading, writing and arithmetic!

Physical literacy comes from developing a wide variety of fundamental movement skills such as hopping, skipping, throwing, catching and jumping. It builds the confidence to continue being physically active and provides the foundation for achievement in sport.


Regular physical activity is connected to better health, positive self-image, better school grades and improved social well-being in general.

Organizations across Kingston are working together to ensure that all children get the right start in sport, school and life.
