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.
The program will be taking place at a variety of locations around Fort St. John, each on a different date. The first event will be taking place on Feb.10, at the Fort St. John Friendship Centre.
March 9 will be the next date on the program's agenda, which will take place at the Fort St. John CDC, followed by an event on April 13 at Bert Ambrose Elementary School. The program wraps up on May 11 at Duncan Cran Elementary School.
The entire program is free of charge, and each event will run from 6-7:30 p.m. No registration is required to attend.
