Great paper!

'Physical literacy' (PT) is a very relevant term.

My opinion and observations...

Crucial for PT (needs) to start young... like early toddler stage with parents.

Playing with balls - rolling, throwing, catching, kicking etc.

Park and outdoor play - walking, running, jumping, climbing, scooting, bike, playparks, etc.

If this stage missed out, difficult to catch up and too late.

You see it, with 7/8 yo's arriving to get involved in sports with little to no pre-school PT.

Immediately, they're retarded physically and understandably interest and enthusiasm then wanes.

Mostly, you don't enjoy doing something you're not reasonably proficient at.

They drop out.
