Physical Literacy and YMCA Programs

The YMCA understands that physical literacy is an important part of a child’s healthy development. When

children acquire and practice fundamental movement and sport skills at a young age they are more likely

to stay active and maintain healthy habits in adulthood. YMCA Staff that lead these programs are trained

in National Coaching Certification Program Fundamental Movement Skills (NCCP FMS). Aligned with the

Canadian Sport for Life’s Long Term Athlete Development Framework (CS4L LTAD), all YMCA programs

provide children and youth the opportunity to practice and improve their physical literacy skills developing

movement confidence and competence to be “Active for Life.”

Active Start

Learn basic movement skills and link

them together into play. Develop habits

of being active.

FUNdamentals

Learn fundamental movement

skills and build agility, balance and

coordination.

Learn to Train

Transition to high performance

for those with appropriate

skills and motivation.

Adult Registered Programs

Collective Kitchen (18 yrs +)

Join a group that meets once a week and cook for you

and/or your family. The group chooses the menu, the

facilitator purchases the food and the group then

creates the meals as a team. Members are asked to

bring their own take-away containers in order to take

the meals home. The facilitator will teach basic nutrition

throughout the class as well as basic food preparation

skills including food safety. Groups will prepare 2-3

meals per session.

For more information or to register, please call the YMCA

Family Resource Centre at 780-426-9265. Please note

One of the great things about being a YMCA member is the large selection of drop-in fitness classes to choose from.

Best of all, every drop-in class is free! Available through any YMCA centre, drop-in classes run throughout the day and

offer a variety of fitness options for adults of all ages and abilities.

Participate in drop-in classes featuring popular sports like badminton, volleyball and floor hockey. Improve balance

and flexibility while lowering stress with meditative classes like tai chi and yoga. Get into the rhythm with musicinspired

classes like Drum Fitness and Zumba®. Or take one of our many land and water fitness classes designed to

build strength and burn fat.

Whatever you choose to do, drop-in fitness classes are a great way to make new friends and try something different

from the everyday routine. The YMCA also offers senior and youth drop-in classes, and all classes require no prior

registration unless stated. For a complete listing, visit northernalberta.ymca.ca and check out your centre schedule.

Note: Participants 8 - 11yrs of age require a parent in attendance. Participants 8 -14yrs require a YMCA Youth Fitness

All levels will happen during the same time slot. If you

set structure and time frame. Our new swim program

relationship building between the instructor, swimmer

and families.

your swimming spot. To maintain your spot please

inform the YMCA if missing 2 classes in a row.

allow space for those members on the wait list.

Conventions, Long Weekends and Seasonal Breaks
