KidsMove sessions combine purposeful play with a variety of games and challenges that will stimulate participants physically, cognitively 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.
- The program was developed with the collaborative input of the Integrated Athlete Development (IAD) group, which includes four internationally renowned health and sport science practitioners and Steve Nash.
- Participants will be expertly guided by an experienced team of Fortius coaches.
- Celebrity athlete appearances at every session – you never know who will join in on the fun!
KidsMove 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.
