Y Kids Academy
According to the 2011 Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card on Physical Activity, Canadian children and youth are sedentary 59% of the time after school. As part of the National Capital Region YMCA-YWCA’s commitment to children and youth, and with growing concerns around inactivity and poor health, the Y launched the Y Kids Academy. This program represents a major step in increasing opportunities for, and reducing barriers to, physical activity for kids. The Y Kids Academy combines physical activity with healthy living lessons and is available at no cost to kids in the 6th grade.
