Programs & Activities
Active Start Fundamental Movement Skills
Fundamental movement skills are basic movements such as throwing, kicking, hopping, jumping, and catching. Fundamental sport skills are those skills linked to a sport situation: for example, kicking a soccer ball, running a sprint, jumping up for a basketball rebound, or catching a baseball. During this program we will be teaching kids ages 3-5 different kinds of fundamental movement skills such as body control, balance, co-ordination, agility, and also a brief introduction to some sports. The program will take place at St. Mary’s Education Centre/Academy small gym every Thursday from 5:30-6:30pm starting January 10th.
