  • places physical activity within a broader perspective of total fitness and well-being that encompasses the entire experience of movement - physical, mental, emotional and social dimensions
  • is enhanced through opportunities to participate in such activities as intramural and interschool athletics and community-based sport and recreation activities
  • is centered around learner needs; inclusive, individual and varied
  • is supported when opportunities for making choices are provided
  • is supportive of the relevance of physical activity within the community.
