St. Jean de Brebeuf Secondry School, Ontario- Hamilton
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting St. Jean de Brebeuf Secondary School’s Functional Fitness Program in Hamilton ON.
The Functional Fitness program will allow grade 9 to become physically fit and physically literate by targeting five fundamental movements (squatting, lunging, pushing, pulling and carrying). Students will develop the necessary functional strength to lead healthy lives, whether they chose to participate in recreation sport or simply lead active lives.
Students will also be introduced to a non-traditional, fun, inclusive, low-organizational sport called Kin Ball. This will engage students of all physical abilities, encouraging cooperation and teamwork while promoting physical literacy and fitness.
