What is the Sporty Kid challenge?

Kids love a challenge, and the thrill of learning something new is so important for the confidence we want to see grow in our kids as they turn into adults. The challenge is all about getting kids to be more active. Trying new activities and earning points for completing them. Watching their points total grow as they do more with their personalized activity cards. Earning rewards as those point totals grow to reinforce the motivation and keep them going even more.

Be active

The statistics on Canadian children’s fitness levels are shockingly bad as kids spend more time with their iPhone and less time running around with friends. Only 8 per cent of girls aged 3-17 meet Canada’s physical activity guidelines, which are essentially 60 minutes of exercise a day. 41% of girls between the ages of 3-17 DON'T participate in sport. And even that low rate drops off precipitously when they hit puberty. Imagine that if a girl hasn’t participated in sport by the age of 10, there’s only a 10 per cent chance she’ll be physically active as an adult. In total, 70% of kids stop playing organized sports by age 13?

  • Being active for at least 60 minutes daily has HUGE benefits for kids, including:

  • Improving their health

  • Sleeping better at night

  • Doing better in school

  • Improving their fitness

  • Growing stronger (be proud of those muscles!)

  • Having fun playing with friends and learning about teamwork

  • Feeling happier (mental health is so important!)

  • Maintaining a healthy body weight

  • Improving their self-confidence, especially with overcoming obstacles

  • Learning new skills

  • Reducing risk of chronic diseases like diabetes or heart conditions

Active kids becoming active adults is so important for our society! Let’s do better with building physical literacy in every child.

Challenges
I believe that every kid should have the opportunity to try every sport, to find their love and passion for exercise and fitness. As parents, it can take a lot of time and $$ to find the right activities for kids. I hope The Sporty Kid helps make it much easier for you.
