Our Mission

Fortius Sport & Health is an integrated athlete development centre strengthened through philanthropy and focused on optimizing human performance for life.

KidsMove

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​KidsMove sessions combine purposeful play with a variety of games and 
challenges that will stimulate participants physically, cognitiv​ely and creatively. And, above all, it will be fun!​


 

​​

In the "golden age" of developing physical literacy (ages 9 – 12 yrs), a child's cognitive capacity to understand the science behind how they move and feel meets the psychological readiness to be accountable, track progress and strive to optimize performance and well-being. This is a key age to develop correct movement patterns and skills, including ABC's – agility, balance, coordination, and speed that will contribute to success in sport with a reduced chance of injury and a lifetime of enjoyment in active living.​ ​

COST

The KidsMove program is free to all participants, supported by the Steve Nash Foundation and ProMotion Research Institute, hosted at Fortius Sport & Health.

​ABOUT THE FORTIUS FOUNDATION

The Fortius Foundation bought the land and built the facility that is at the heart of Fortius Sport & Health in Burnaby, B.C. We enhanced it with leading-edge equipment and technologies. Our role is simple: to fund and support world-class sport and exercise medicine and science facilities, programs and other initiatives centered on collaborative research, education and innovation.

We are supported by donations – both to our capital campaign and fundraising to support local programs.​ With our support – and yours – aspiring young athletes can receive the same model of care as professional athletes and Olympians, and more kids can have positive experiences in sport.​

Donate to the Fortius Foundation​ to help support the KidsMove program.


 

About REACH

KidsMove @ Fortius is powered by REACH - a collaboration between Fortius Sport & Health, the Steve Nash Foundation​, Pro Motion Research Institute, and the IAD Group – four internationally renowned health and science practitioners, the experts behind multi-sport Olympic teams, soccer stars, hockey legends and two time NBA MVP Steve Nash. KidsMove is the first in a series of athlete development opportunities that will be launched under the REACH brand. By integrating age-and-stage-appropriate science in a comprehensive way, REACH empowers kids with the physical, emotional and foundational science education to grow their own health and reach their performance potential.​​​
