Y Kids Academy
According to the 2013 Active Healthy Kids Canada Report, only seven per cent of 5 to 11-year-olds, and four per cent of 12 to- 17-year-olds in Canada meet the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines for Children and Youth, which recommend at least 60 minutes of daily moderate to vigorous physical activity. As part of the 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.
