Ontario Physical Literacy Summit Information for Parents

Please see below and attached for information sessions in September.


​On Saturday, September 27, 2014 in Hamilton, an event has been organized specifically for Parents, Community Coaches and Leaders to learn more about how they can provide the best Active Start for their child(ren), understand the importance of moving properly in different environments at a young age and understand what to look for in a quality active program. Ask questions to our expert presenters on a variety of topics focused on ages 1-12. There will also be sessions specifically for Adults – whether you are currently active or looking for a simple start – you are role models for your children and we have presenters that know how to assist you and make activities fun for the entire family!

KidZONE, optional childcare for ages 4-12 is available on Saturday from 8:30am-12:30pm. Children will be with presenters and leaders while they participate in active sessions all morning themselves!

For a full schedule and to register online visit www.physicalliteracyhamilton.ca

We challenge you to commit yourself to 4 hours of learning and fun activities for the whole family!

We look forward to seeing you in September!
