Children at this age want to have FUN while playing. At this stage, they continue to refine fundamental movement and sport skills. Children are building strength, endurance and speed through play. Catching, throwing, kicking and dribbling are critical object manipulation skills that will develop confidence in many different sports. Agility and locomotion skills are refined through fun games, drills and activities. Children at this age are encouraged to continue exploring a wide variety of sports. Classes may be combined if registration is low. Sign up with a friend and have some fun with us.
Frequently Asked Questions - MultiSport

Junior Blues participants have access to the Athletic Centre through the Athletic Centre main entrance. An access pass is required for all participants at all times.
Please ensure that you arrive with enough time to pick up an access pass from the Junior Blues table located outside the main office before proceeding to the class.

All participants should come dressed for physical activity in running shoes, shorts or track pants and t-shirts. Remember to bring a water bottle and if you choose to bring snacks for before or after class please keep them nut-free.
Can I watch my child's class?
Yes! Parents are welcome to remain. We ask that parents watch from the designated area and refrain from interacting with their child during the class. Children must be able to participate independently.
What skills are being taught?
Active Start is based on the concept of physical literacy, that children can move with competence and confidence and are prepared for a lifetime of enjoying physical activity. Children in the Active Start program will focus on the Fundamental Movement Skills including locomotor skills (walking, running, galloping, hopping, skipping and jumping) as well as agility, balance and coordination. Object manipulation skills (throwing, catching, dribbling and kicking) are introduced and refined.
