This study, “Effectiveness of physical literacy program on the enhancement of skill-related fitness performance of senior high school students” assessed the effectiveness of physical literacy program on the enhancement of skill-related fitness performance of the senior high school students. Eighty students performed the skill-related fitness such as power, agility, balance, and speed. Single group experimental research of pre-test-post-test design was utilized. The Revised Physical Fitness Manual was utilized as research instrument. Procedures of the pre-test and post-test were provided. They performed with supervision of any adult in their homes. The level of fitness in power was “Good”, agility was “Fair, balance and speed skills was “Needs Improvement”. It was concluded that there is a significant difference between the pre-test and post-test performance of the participants in power, balance, and speed; while there is no significant difference in agility skill. The implementation of the physical literacy program during this pandemic may be reviewed to determine whether students can perform expected physical activities or follow the procedures. The content of the physical literacy program during this pandemic may be revisited to determine whether all activities can be performed with little supervision. Since it was determined that the physical literacy program has been effective particularly in the enhancement of power, balance and speed, the program may be continued with a minimal modification to increase the level of fitness of students. Other agility improvement tests may be included in the improvement plan.
