3. School and Youth Sport

The Principle:

a. Research demonstrates that girls and boys approach sport from markedly different perspectives; and that quality physical education (QPE) is particularly important for girls to learn the skills, knowledge and understanding they require for lifelong participation. Those responsible for sport, education, recreation and physical education of young people should ensure that an equitable range of opportunities and learning experience, which accommodate the values, attitudes and aspirations of girls, is incorporated in programmes to develop physical literacy and basic motor skills of young people.

b. In particular, the provision of QPE should be guided by the UNESCO Guidelines on Quality Physical Education and the ICSSPE International Position Statement on Physical Education.
