ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Workshop #5 on May 18 and 19, 2017, culminates the series on Physical Literacy and Long Term Athlete Development, sponsored by The British Virgin Islands Olympic Committee.

The BVIOC is holding the workshop in collaboration with the Canada Sport for Life (CS4L), Canadian Olympic Committee (COC), the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees (CANOC) and the Ministries of Education and Culture and Health and Social Development.

The final workshop highlights the importance of developing and integrating Physical Literacy across the life cycle.

Invitations have been extended to schools' Health Liaison teachers, Physical Education teachers from private and public schools and representatives from Early Childhood Centers to attend the session on Friday, May 19, from 8:30 am to 2:30 PM at the conference room of the Training Division which is located in the Bettito Frett Building.

Previous sessions

The first session took place in February 2016 and covered the key factors pertinent to athlete development and the 5 basic ‘S’s of training and performance – Stamina (Endurance), Strength, Speed, Skill, and Suppleness (Flexibility).

The second session in May 2016, focused on discussing the project outlines in the areas of Sport, Health and Education that followed on from the first workshop.

The third session in September 2016 was on Physical Literacy and looked at the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life.

The fourth session held in February 2017 focused on time management as a planning technique to provide the framework for arranging the complex array of training processes (skill development, strength training, regeneration) into a logical schedule to bring about optimal improvements in performance.

The Rugby, Basketball, Archery, Athletics and Sailing Federations will hand over the completed Long Term Athlete Development model for their sports at a closing ceremony which will be held at Old Government House on May 18, 2017.

The presenters for this activity will be Mr Drew Mitchell and Mr Thomas Jones, Physical Literacy experts from Sport for Life Canada.
