Did you know only 12% of kids get the recommended amount of activity each day?

To keep kids and families active and engaged during this period of physical distancing, we’ve partnered with the 60 Minute Kids’ Club to provide tools & resources to support the entire family. Access to this fun and engaging program is being made available FREE to all of you at this time. You can take part in the comfort of you own home!

What is the 60 Minutes Kids’ Club?

The 60 Minute Kids Club is a unique activation program designed to support the development of physical literacy & health strategies. The program consists of two tools that track, record & report healthy behaviors & fundamental movement skills for kids ages 5-14 years old.
This is what the kids’ club looks like in schools.

Who is it for?

Normally reserved for schools, we’ve arranged for the Kids’ club to open registration to include participation as a family, team, club or organization FREE OF CHARGE.
