Canada Games Activity Challenge | #CGAC150
Start date: 17 November, 2016
End date: 21 June, 2017
The Canada Games Activity Challenge is an online physical literacy tracker and rewards program. It's aimed at inspiring the 90% of Canadian kids (grd. K-7) who aren't receiving the recommended daily amount of physical activity.
Participants in the Canada Games Activity Challenge will stick to a daily activity program, based on the principals of physical literacy. These fun activities and interactive challenges are developed to build healthy, habit-forming behaviours in students and will empower teachers with a database of age-appropriate and skill-specific activities, linked to Canada’s Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model.
Students will also participate individually at home, challenging themselves to accomplish personal bests. These efforts will be supported and rewarded by a web-based application to help track participation and motivate—using the principals of gamification.
Sign up at www.canadagames.ca/activitychallenge from Nov. 17, 2016 - Jan. 27, 2017. The Activity Challenge starts in schools nationwide on Feb. 13, 2017.
