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.

Today we're celebrating the #SummerSolstice and #InternationalYogaDay Yoga is an awesome way to help kids develop important physical and mental skills - and it can be easily adapted for all ages and abilities! For younger children, keep practices short and use stories and familiar animals or objects as cues for them to mimic with their poses. For older kids, try building to some more challenging balancing poses or turn inwards to focus on the stress-relieving benefits of the practice. #activekids #yoga
