Overview

Join coaches from UBC’s School of Kinesiology for weekly movement missions that combine fitness and fun! This free program can be completed at home or outside and is only open to children age 7-12 years old living in Acadia Park and the University Neighbourhoods Association (UNA). There are fantastic prizes for participating and limited spots, so be sure to register soon!

Kids Fit is an annual physical activity initiative jointly offered by Active Kids and UTown@UBC. For over a decade, Kids Fit has been dedicated to making fun, inclusive, purposeful physical activities accessible to families on campus.

Safe program delivery is our priority, and this year’s Kid Fit five week challenge will be delivered entirely online.

Each week will feature a Movement Mission in the form of a themed instructional video and self-guided activities. How you complete the Movement Mission is up to you. Let the kids do the activities on their own or together with the family, at home or take it outside!

This year’s themes are:

  • Week 1: Multisport
  • Week 2: Fit Fun
  • Week 3: Gymnastics + Live Stream
  • Week 4: Sports Day
  • Week 5: Dance

Once each weekly Movement Mission is completed, participants will uncover a secret word to collect and track their progress on a Kids Fit BINGO card. At the end of the program, completed BINGO cards can be redeemed for a special prize.
