What is KIDDO?

KIDDO is built around the principals of Physical Literacy, which is about building the skills, knowledge and behaviours to lead active lives.

The principles are:

  • Physical

    The skills and fitness a person develops and applies through movement. This includes coordination, balance, flexibility, agility, strength, endurance and reaction time.

  • Psychological

    The attitudes and emotions a person has towards movement and the impact they have on their confidence and motivation to move. This includes confidence, motivation, self-perception, and self-regulation of emotions.

  • Social

    A person’s interaction with others in relation to movement. This includes relationships, collaboration, ethics, and culture in society.

  • Cognitive

    A person’s understanding of how, why and when they move. This includes safety and risk, rules, reasoning, strategy and planning, perceptual awareness and tactics.

Program Coordinator East Gippsland – Yvonne Porter

As the Program Coordinator for East Gippsland, I oversee all of the amazing programs and projects we are a part of within East Gippsland. I have previously worked for Netball Victoria & Victoria University across participation, coach development, sociological research and wrote a thesis on building and maintaining culture in sporting teams.

When I’m not travelling around beautiful East Gippsland spreading the joy and connection that comes with sport and physical activity, you can find me at the netball courts- either at Lakes Entrance or in Melbourne in the Victorian Netball League. I am one of 52 netball coaches in Victoria with an Advanced accreditation and one of 13 based regionally.
