October 14-December 13 (no classes the week of November 11)
The north Edmonton community leagues of Kilkenny, Horse Hill, McLeod, Northmount, Evansdale, and Lago Lindo have joined forces to run the Sport Explorerz program to help 3-6 year-old children acquire and practice basic movement and sports skills in a fun and engaging way. It’s the perfect pre-sports program and you can take it within your community.
Let’s face it… most 3-6-year-olds just want to have fun! Sport Explorerz is not a sport, but rather a fun way to get an active start in physical activity in ways that enhance coordination, foster new social skills and build confidence by engaging in fun physical activities.
Sport Explorerz is accessible to all types of children with the focus on fun! Children will learn fundamental skills that will serve them in multiple sports. Active Start and Fundamentals are the physical literacy stages of the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model across all sports (canadiansportforlife.ca). In short, children will learn the skill fundamentals that will help them be successful in any sport and help encourage them to start today on an active lifestyle that will last a lifetime.
- Sport Explorerz is led by trained leaders in a way that will give all kids the “power to move” in sport and in life.
- Programs run weekly for eight weeks.
- Fees are $50.
- Volunteer commitments are required.
- Parent attendance is required.
