Phrase:  I am a FIT Champion

I am a FIT Champion recognition is presented by the Movement Science Department to students in FIT classes who exemplify leadership and the embodiment of the pursuit of physical literacy (having the “motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to value and take responsibility for engagement in physical activities for life” - International Physical Literacy Association). The goal of physical literacy goes beyond sports and encourages individuals to become involved in physical activities to improve themselves by developing their physical skills, knowledge and understanding, motivation and confidence.

FIT Faculty may nominate any student in a FIT class for leading by example and encouraging others in this multidisciplinary concept of physical literacy.  Award winners will receive a T-shirt with I am a FIT Champion and a frameable certificate of recognition.

A BIG thank you to Melanie Siebert (GVSU Class of 2025 & Movement Science Student Worker), for designing the I am a FIT Champion T-shirts and certificates.
