We offer a variety of educational workshops throughout the year, from Physical Literacy 101 to preparing for athletic scholarships. We often collaborate with organizations like Sport for Life to bring in some informative, fun workshops.
Active PLAY for Child Care Professionals
Want to learn more about what you can do to comply with the Director of Licensing Standard of Practice Active Play? PISE, Pacific Sport Vancouver Island and Island Health are partnering to bring information to licensed child care providers.
Each in-person, active session will last for approximately 2.5 hours, and include games and activities for 0 – 12 year olds that can be facilitated in child care licence settings. The sessions will focus on fundamental movement skills, how to teach them, age appropriate games and activities for each skill and ways to adapt games for individuals of all abilities. A take-home handout will also be provided with information on teaching cues, where to find additional resources and helpful hints and tips. Please arrive in comfortable workout clothes and running shoes.
