Frequently Asked Questions
No, the Government of Alberta has sponsored the development of these guidelines and many after-school agencies and funders across Alberta are actively supporting and promoting the use of them.
The guidelines apply to any program serving children and youth ages 3 - 17 years old.
These guidelines assume that participants are also at school during the day and receiving 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity. On days where this isn’t the case (i.e., professional development days, holidays, summer programs/camps, etc.), the recommendation within these guidelines should be shifted to 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity.
