The goal of the new program is to work together in building awareness of the importance of gross motor development in children from 0-6 years of age and impact basic physical literacy and skills through planned indoor activities.

The program will include a number of different physical activities, such as obstacle courses, exercise to strengthen balance and coordination, and teaching children the importance of living an active lifestyle. The main goal is to inform kids and parents of the importance of activity, as well as the prevention of obesity.

Participants are also asked to bring water bottles to the events, as organizers would like to emphasize the importance of drinking water and being regularly hydrated.
