Play principle 2

Video transcript

[Young People’s Manager: Kane Wilson speaking]

It allows you to do any activity, and to do this activity in your own time, and as far as one of the key principles of physical literacy is concerned, it allows you to do it for your entire life. So the sustainability principle is apparent, and it is very real, and you are doing what you are doing and why you are doing it for an absolute purpose and reason.
