Canadian Tire JumpStart
Canadian Tire believes that physical activity should be a priority in the lives of Canadian
children. Unfortunately, one in three families can’t afford to enrol their kids in organized sports
and recreation. That’s why they created Canadian Tire JumpStart, a charitable program that gives
all kids a chance to play, get fit and develop important social skills. The program is communitybased
and helps kids in financial need participate in organized sports and recreation such as
baseball, soccer, hockey, gymnastics, summer programs, swimming, Girl Guides, and Boy
Scouts. National in scope but local in focus, Canadian Tire JumpStart delivers support to
children through a Canadian-wide network of local chapters, made up of a variety of community
leaders committed to helping kids get active, such as Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCA, and Parks
and Recreation Departments. These community partners are joined by Canadian Tire Associate
Dealers and Petroleum Agents, and together the chapters identify children in financial need who
would benefit from the program. To date, there are 300 Canadian Tire JumpStart chapters in
communities across the country. Since its launch in February 2005, Canadian Tire JumpStart has
helped give more than 330,000 kids in financial need the chance to play.
If your family or any family you know are experiencing financial need and have youth
between the ages of 4 - 18, please call Wanda Wight, Chairperson of the local chapter at
686-2075 or email email@example.com to find out more about this program.
Forms are available at the Town Office - Confidentiality is Guaranteed.

THE FUNDAMENTALS OF FITNESS
To build the foundation for physical literacy, children need to be introduced to the FUNdamentals.
These are fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills that children learn through FUN
activities that maintain their interest and encourage their love of sport and activity.
Children won’t develop into
high performance athletes or
stay active with recreational
activity if they don’t have
physical literacy, and they
won’t have physical literacy
if they don’t get the
FUNdamentals include a
wide variety of fundamental
movement skills and
fundamental sport skills that
should be learned at young
ages in four different
environments: earth, water,
air, and snow and ice. With
these basic skills children
gain the ability and
confidence to practice any
sport or physical activity
Research strongly suggests
that the FUNdamentals
should be learned before the
adolescent growth spurt
begins. After the start of the
growth spurt, it becomes
much more difficult for the
body to develop fundamental
skills and the ABCs of
agility, balance, coordination
and speed. Athletics,
gymnastics and swimming
are good sports for
The key to learning the
fundamentals is FUN. Young
children learn best when the
activities are fun, and having
fun helps them to develop a
love of physical activity and
Travelling Skills Object Control Skills Balance Movements

Three sports are especially good for developing the FUNdamentals: athletics, gymnastics and swimming. Athletics teaches children
to run, wheel, jump and throw. Gymnastics builds the ABCs of athleticism - Agility, Balance, Coordination, and Speed. Swimming is
the foundation for all water-based sports, and it also helps children to become safe in and around water.

Staff: In order for this organization to keep costs to a minimum, we apply for grants and hire students for the
summer program. These students perform to the best of their ability and accordingly we ask that any
comments or concerns be brought to the attention of either Kelli Lannon or Wanda Wight for follow-up with
the coaches and executive.
Coaches: Coaches are required for our travel teams. There are several tournaments and games throughout the

PASADENA MINOR BASEBALL
Program will begin on Monday, May 28 , 2012 and will operate Mondays from 6:00pm-7:30pm. It is open
to players age 7 - 15yrs. This is an optional league meant to provide instructional baseball to help improve the
skill level of all players. Fees for Spring League are $10.00 per player.

female players born between 1994 - 2008 inclusively. Players are registered into divisions according to their
age. Summer League will operate Monday to Friday each week for seven weeks. Due to the risk of injury to
players, baseball will not be operating during wet weather.
Blast Ball players use a soft bat and ball to make playing safer, and when Blast Ballers
step on the bases they will hear a sound that will certainly get their attention. We feel
it makes the game a little more fun for the younger players.
In order to keep registration fees at a minimum, Pasadena Minor Baseball applies for
federal grants to hire students to run the Summer program. These students perform to
the best of their ability. Accordingly, we request that any concerns, comments, or
suggestions for improvement or changes to the program be brought to the attention of
either Paul Briffett or Tina Oake for follow up with the coaches and association
To run a successful program for 80 plus kids requires a lot of volunteer time and effort. Volunteers to run this
program are urgently needed, particularly for the younger age groups. Please take the time and help support
baseball in our community so we can continue this sports opportunity for the youth of our area. PMB has one
of the most successful baseball programs in the province. Last year Pasadena teams placed extremely well in
rd th th
Provincial tournaments. This year Pasadena will host Mosquito AA Provincials on August 3 , 4 , & 5 .

We believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience
the positive benefits of organized sports. KidSport provides support to children in order to remove financial
barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.
By providing kids with an opportunity to participate in sport programs, KidSport encourages:
* developing early physical activity habits that will help increase the probability that kids will remain active
*getting kids active in sport programs when they are young to develop a strong and healthy community for
*helping to create these opportunities for sport participation and playing a significant role in supporting many
under-represented families in Canada facing economic obstacles
OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE
We know we are making a difference. Our program enables more kids to play organized sports and is
fulfilling a need for the families we support, but there are still too many kids left on the sidelines. We have
a vision to ensure that no child is EVER left watching from the sidelines simply because their family couldn't
afford the cost. The following principles guide our activities:
* The inclusion of ALL children in sport;
* Children leading healthy, active lifestyles;
* The community working together to assist children;
* Working to foster activities that inspire strong life skills (team play, fair play, and self-esteem); &
* Collaborating with other local organizations to address social issues affecting our youth.
