Move & Play After-School Workshops

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the scheduled Move & Play After-School Workshops have been cancelled. Registrants will be contacted to process full refunds. If you have any questions please contact Louise at

The Alberta Be Fit For Life Network has partnered with Ever Active Schools and the Alberta Active After School committee to support after-school program leaders in learning engaging, fun and interactive ways to incorporate physical activity within the programs offered during the after-school time period (3-6pm).

As part of this initiative the Be Fit For Life centres will be offering ‘Move & Play After-School’ workshops across the province. This interactive workshop will discuss the Provincial Activity Guidelines for After-School Programs in Alberta, provide tools and activities to use to help develop physical literacy and fundamental movement skills as well as additional resources to enhance the activity levels of after school program participants and the confidence of the leaders implementing the activities.

Investment: $25 + fees & taxes (includes 2 resources per registrant!)

Session Details

Did you know that the province of Alberta has a set of Activity Guidelines for After-School Programs? Increasing the amount of physical activity you offer in your program can help Alberta’s children and youth achieve our national physical activity guidelines and can help you achieve your program goals. This session will explore ways that you can incorporate the provincial guidelines and increase physical activity in your after-school program with "high participation and fun, low organization" activities! During the session you will learn about the Provincial Activity Guidelines for After-School Programs in Alberta and have a chance to get some hands on experience trying out easy to implement activities that you can bring back to your program on the next day!

Are you running an after school program in rural Alberta?

We have training support available for rural areas of Alberta throughout the 2019-20 school year! Please reach out to Louise McClelland to schedule a training event for your community.
