Active Kids

Home of Active Kids Gymnastics, Sport, Physical Literacy, and Community Engagement

The Active Kids Program is an Outreach program of the UBC School of Kinesiology. We provide recreational gymnastics, sport, and physical activity classes to individuals and communities of all ages and levels of ability. Our philosophy emphasizes fun, inclusive, developmentally appropriate, organized, safe, purposeful, and active movement experiences. We encourage physical literacy development and sport-specific skill acquisition, and promote lifelong participation in physical activity.

Be a recognized UBC leader and a signature program of the School of Kinesiology for engaging with diverse communities through evidence based physical activity programming for children and youth, and for developing rich experiential learning opportunities for Kinesiology  students.

Mission

Programs are focused on positive sport experiences, physical literacy development, and empowering children and youth to be healthy and physically active for life.
