Active for Life is a national initiative about physical literacy, and we’ve partnered with Athletics Canada to provide information for coaches to learn about two things that are at the core of healthy sports for kids: physical literacy and the long-term athlete development model.
Athletics Canada and Active or life are supporting Global Running Day. Celebrate your love for running by pledging to take a jog around the block or playing tag with your kids and then tell us about it on social media using the #globalrunningday hashtag.
