The Sport Explosure Program began another session on Monday, March 2nd. The program will be held two days a week for 8 weeks - Mondays from 3:45-5:00 p.m. for ages 5-7 years and Thursdays from 3:45-5:00 p.m. for ages 8-12 years.
The objective of the program is to help kids learn a variety of sport skills through participating in fun activities that enhance agility, balance and coordination. This session we will also be incorporating the Sport Fit Challenge which is to help identify what sports your child is best suited for - it includes tests for: aerobic fitness, flexibility, endurance, strength, balance, power, speed and agility.
Once all of the 8 challenges are completed each participant will fill out a mini-questionnaire which will help to determine if they prefer individual or team sports, sports that have an element of risk, and whether they prefer sports that last a couple of minutes or a couple of hours. Once all the information is entered on the computer each participant will receive a list of winter sport options, summer sport options and a certificate of completion. There is no cost for this program - it is sponsored by the Bengough Parks & Recreation Committee.
