    #7 The End Goal – Meaningful Participation
    Each person has a journey, and we want it to be physical whether that is in vocation, recreation or just activities of daily living. All we really want is for a person to meaningfully be able to participate in activity.

    #8 Motor Competence and the Gender Gap
    Motor competence is a core feature of physical literacy. Equipping children with motor competence in a diverse set of movements is key to developing PL and equipping them for the PL journey. Motor competence develops with age when a child is exposed to and participates in repetitions. Sadly, our culture does not provide for adequate repetition based learning for girls resulting in a highly undesirable gender gap.
