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.
