Physical inactivity is of a concern for children and youth with autism and others who experience motor coordination challenges as they are often less active than age-matched, typically developing peers. The Getting Into The Game (GITG) is a 16-week inclusive physical literacy program designed to help children and youth gain a positive attitude towards physical activity and its benefits, develop the confidence to try new community-wide physical activities, form new friendships and become motivated to continue to engage in future physical activities. These coaching and participation sessions will allow for children and youth to explore their interests in physical activity and to set individualized goals.

 Eligibility Criteria:

  • Children or youth in grades 1 through 3 who want to become more physically active and would like to gain more confidence in their motor abilities
  • Children or youth should be able to walk or move independently in a gym setting.
  • Child or youth should be able to participate in a group session without the assistance of an aide.

* Please note that for the Fall 2019/Winter 2020 sessions, the GITG groups are being generously funded by the National Bank and the Milos Raonic Foundation. A big thank you to our wonderful sponsors!

Dates: Please note that the fee of $150 covers all 16 sessions. The sessions begin on February 22nd, 2020  (Saturdays) – 12:30-1:30pm. Children in Grades 1-3.
