Last chance to Run, Jump and Throw in Hope

Hands-on workshop will show teachers and parents better ways to get kids moving

Parents, educators and anyone else who works with children, are all invited to join in the Physical Literacy Workshop being held at the Hope Recreation Centre on March 17.

This Run, Jump, Throw workshop is designed for coaches, recreation staff, teachers, early childhood educators, day care staff, child and youth workers and anyone else who works directly with children.

Just as children need to be taught to read and write, they need to be taught how to run, jump and throw.

After all, movement is a child’s first language, and our ability to move is the most fundamental means we have of interacting with our world.

Run Jump Throw is led by a Certified RJT Learning Facilitator and will provide participants with a thorough look at the skills of running, jumping and throwing as a basis for all land based sports.

The program is supported by BC Athletics, the BC Sport Agency, the Provincial Government, Pacific Sport, Gymnastics BC and the Hope and District Recreation and Cultural Services.

Cost for this workshop is $25 per person, and it runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  The Kids Can Move workshop planned for this Saturday had to be cancelled due to low registration numbers.

For more information, and to register, call 604-869-2304.
