What is the Sporty Kid challenge?

The challenge is all about being active every day. Trying new sports and having fun with your friends and family. Being more active means you feel healthy, strong and full of energy. Plus, every time you finish a challenge, you’ll earn points. How many challenges will you finish?

Be active

The statistics on Canadian children’s fitness levels are shockingly bad as kids spend more time with their parents phones and less time running around with friends. Only 35% of kids ages 5-17 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. In total, 70% of kids stop playing organized sports by age 13. Kids who play multiple sports tend to be happier, healthier and more successful as adults.

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.
