    Canadian kids not exercising enough 

    While 84 per cent of children who are 3 and 4 years old get the recommended 180 minutes of daily physical activity, the picture changes drastically for older age groups.

    Only seven per cent of kids ages 5 to 11 and a mere four per cent of those aged 12 to 17 get the recommended 60 minutes of daily physical activity of moderate to vigorous intensity. …

    Based on nine categories, Canada received a grade of D– in overall physical activity, putting it below Mozambique, New Zealand, Mexico, Kenya, Nigeria and England. …

    Access to physical activity in Canada isn’t the problem: 95 per cent of parents report local availability of parks and outdoor spaces; 94 per cent say public facilities such as arenas and pools are available; and over 90 per cent of students have access to a gym or playing fields at school.

    Why kids over 5 aren’t doing enough physically

    Gymtastic Gymtools at U.S. Congress 

    Darlene the Bean:

    If you’re going to the USA Gymnastics Congress in Hartford this week, I will be speaking about the importance of understanding growth and development when teaching a pre-school gymnastics program.

    A fun, simple and educational workshop providing practical and easy to use tools for teaching and designing a “super” child centred gymnastics program. The focus of this session will be on defining and describing the characteristics of the whole child physically, socially, emotionally and mentally at each age and stage.
