Develop physical literacy.

Belong to a positive community

YMCA programs include intentional activities that help build physical literacy to help kids be active and confident in whatever activity or sport they choose.

Our facilities are filled with people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. Our programs create opportunities to build positive relationships with like-minded, active people.

It’s proven that people who are physically literate are more likely to be active for life (see more about physical literacy on page 4).

Participating with others provides a powerful combination of support, accountability, and motivation to stay active and helps build healthy communities.

Become socially responsible Through our values of respect, honesty, responsibility and caring, we teach kids to respect themselves, others and the environment in which they learn and play.

Be active for life We offer accessible programs and facillities that help develop and sustain healthy and active lifestyles.

Develop life skills Kids learn social skills, how to be independent and to make good choices. We foster individual development through group learning, challenge and fun.

Have you heard of the term physical literacy? We don’t take the term lightly. Physical literacy means developing the foundational skills and confidence required to participate in regular physical activity, play a sport or get to the podium. YMCA programs include intentional activities that help build physical literacy to allow your child to participate in whatever activity or sport they choose.

Start early. It’s important to build a foundation of physical literacy. The early years are the best time to start. You can continue to build these skills through life.

Developing physical literacy skills is progressive, and different at each developmental stage.

BOYS 0 - 6 GIRLS 0 - 6 Learn basic movement skills and link them together to play. Develop habits for being active.

Be active for life.

It’s proven that people who are physically literate are more likely to be active for life.

BOYS 6 - 9 GIRLS 6 - 8 Learn fundamental movement skills and build agility, balance and coordination.

BOYS 9- 12 GIRLS 8- 11 Convert fundamental movement skills to fundamental sport- specific skillls.

IT’S A FACT. 70% of Canadian children aged 3 - 4 years get their recommended 180 minutes of daily activity.

10

But only

14% of children aged 5 - 11 years and 5% of youth aged 12 - 17 years get their recommended 60 minutes of daily activity.

Ten ways to encourage your kids to love to move.

When kids are moving, they are developing physical literacy at the same time. The love of moving needs to be taught and encouraged, exactly the same way we teach and encourage our children to love to read.

3 4 5 6

Make moving a natural part of your child’s day right from the beginning. Encourage your child to crawl, stand, walk and play.

Build physical activity into your family’s daily routine. Engage in some form of physical activity with

your family every day. It doesn’t matter what the activity is, as long as you are moving together. To start, make a family activity goal of 15 minutes per day.

Lead by example. What’s your active routine? Do you practice yoga, play tennis, walk the dog, or work out at the gym? Being an active role model is one of the best things you can do to encourage your kids to be active.

7 8 9

Power your transportation.

Walk, run, bike, scooter, or skate your way from point A to point B. Encouraging your kids to power their own transportation from an early age will get them into a healthy habit they won’t think twice about.

Expose your kids to a wide variety of activities and sports. Kids who specialize in a

Focus on fun.

Most kids aren’t ready for competition until they are at least 10 years old. For kids under ten, fun activities and non-competitive games keep things stressfree and allow them to have success no matter what their skill level.

Spend time outdoors. It’s proven that kids who play outside take 35% more daily steps. Create opportunities that encourage outdoor play every day.

Choose a daycare or pre-school that incorporates physical activity. Parents should

look for a daycare that dedicates time to encouraging ageappropriate movement every day. Children need lots of opportunities to move and develop basic skills like running, jumping, hopping, and skipping during both structured and unstructured play.

Help your child move early .

specific sport too early often get burned out. It’s important to let kids try lots of different activities so they can develop a wide range of skills and discover what they enjoy. With a few exceptions, most sports do not require specialization until kids are in their early teens.

Praise but don’t push.

Notice when your child is enjoying an activity and cheer them on. Always keep things positive from the sidelines so they understand that you value what they are doing, but you aren’t so invested in it that they feel pressure.

Encourage your child’s school to incorporate physical activity in the curriculum. Every school would benefit from a physical education specialist who knows how to engage children of all skill levels and abilities, and can help them develop their love of moving. Physical literacy is as important as reading literacy. For kids, both quality and quantity is important when it comes to being physically active. Moving with your family every day will help your kids value physical activity, promote physical literacy, and keep everyone happy and healthy. This Active for Life article was authored by Sara Smeaton. Children with physical literacy skills have the ability and confidence to be active for life.

Active for Life is a non-profit organization committed to helping parents raise happy, healthy, physically literate kids. For more tips like these, please click on this activeforlife.com link.

THANK YOU MELCOR DEVELOPMENTS

The words honesty, caring, responsibility and respect hang prominently inside the Melcor YMCA at Crowfoot,” she says. “Andy and the team at Melcor embody those values and put them to good use creating communities and investing in the success of kids, families and everyone who lives and works within them.

YMCA Calgary will be forever grateful to Melcor Developments for their support. Calgarians will be too. In a significant boost to its Power of Potential Campaign, YMCA Calgary received a $1-million donation from Melcor Developments Ltd., celebrating the strong relationship between the YMCA, Melcor and its founding family, the Meltons.

THE POWER OF POTENTIAL is a $30 million fundraising campaign with a goal to give more Calgarians a place to belong, grow, thrive and lead.

In recognition of this substantial and meaningful gift, YMCA Calgary has renamed its Crowfoot YMCA facility in northwest Calgary as the Melcor YMCA at Crowfoot.

Operating three new facilities in partnership with the City of Calgary, will help us respond to the growing demand for our programs and services.

The Melton family and Melcor Developments are strong supporters of the Power of Potential Campaign and YMCA Calgary.

WE’RE OPENING TWO NEW CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTRES. YMCA Calgary will open two new Child Development Centres in the Summer of 2016. The centres will offer full-day licensed childcare for children ages 12 months - 6 years.

OUR PHILOSOPHY.

We’ve been in the childcare business for more than 20 years. Our philosophy has remained the same.

LEARNING

SOCIAL

HEALTH

Our childcare centres use the YMCA Playing to Learn Curriculum. This curriculum is designed to maximize children’s learning by actively engaging them in small group, play-based experiences that are developmentally appropriate..

Relationships form the foundation for all that occurs within the childcare setting. Children learn about YMCA Calgary’s four core values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility. Children practice behaviours that support social skill development, emotional competence and community engagement.

Our program teaches children to value health, nutrition and activity. We encourage and learn about healthy eating and dedicate time throughout each day to incorporate and encourage age-appropriate movement. Through intentional activities, we begin to build the foundation for physical literacy (read more about physical literacy on pages 4 and 5).

Activities encompass all developmental areas and support children with school readiness and to become life-long learners. Program options include onsite enhancement activities and fieldtrips for older children.

OPEN MONDAY - FRIDAY FROM 7:00 AM - 6:00 PM Programs at both centres will include recreation time in the pool (age dependent) and active play both indoors and outside. All children registered in our childcares receive a complimentary child YMCA membership.

IT’S A FACT.

Drowning is the second leading cause of death in Canadian children under 5 years of age. Deceptively quiet and often mistaken for water play, 10% of drownings happen while parents are watching. Introducing children to swim lessons that teach swim skills and water safety helps to prevent drowning. Register your child for a swim lesson today!

How do you determine what swim level is right for your child?

Use our progression chart and level descriptions. If you have observed your child in the water, use the descriptions on pages 16 and 17 to determine what level is right for your child. With the exception of Star Leadership 7, our unparented swim programs have two levels in each swim class. Once your child can confidently complete the skills in the first level they will move to the next (for example, once Bobbers successfully complete their skills, they move to Floaters). Depending on skill level, your child can be enrolled in the second level to start.

 

 

Contact your local YMCA and speak with a certified swim instructor.

Book a swim assessment with one of our aquatics team members - it’s free!

Ask your child’s swim intructor on the last day of lessons where to place your child for the next session.

Use your child’s online swim report card to determine what skills match which level. To access your child’s report card, visit www.ymcacalgary.org/reportcards. Use your membership or swim access card barcode number to login.

CHILDREN & YOUTH

DOLPHINS & SWIMMERS (AGE:6Y-17Y) Dive into aquatics with the Dolphins and Swimmers program, designed to encourage your child to swim distances as great as 15 metres using common crawl strokes. Dolphins will coordinate arms, legs and breathing for smooth propulsion during front and back crawl. At the Swimmers level, participants will improve front and back strokes, endurance, and treading water skills..

OTTERS & SEALS (AGE:6Y-17Y) Your beginner-level swimmer will learn foundational swimming skills that will be applied throughout their future aquatic activities. They will improve their body awareness and motor skills as they submerge, kick, roll and jump in the water. Otters will learn to go under water and glide on top of the water. Seals will use flutter kicks and roll the body from side to side for streamlined movement through the water.

DID YOU

KNOW? You only bear approximately 10% of your weight when you swim due to the buoyancy of water. With greater ease of movement and less strain on bones, joints and muscles, swimming has a lower risk of injury than many other forms of exercise.

AQUATICS LEARNING TO SWIM ISN’T JUST FOR KIDS. Looking to overcome your fear of the water, refine your strokes, or become a more efficient triathlon swimmer? We offer adult programs from beginner to master. Visit page 51 for details.

42

WWW.YMCACALGARY.ORG


IT’S A FACT.

Drowning is the second leading cause of death in Canadian children under 5 years of age. Deceptively quiet and often mistaken for water play, 10% of drownings happen while parents are watching. Introducing children to swim lessons that teach swim skills and water safety helps to prevent drowning. Register your child for a swim lesson today!

How do you determine what swim level is right for your child?

Use our progression chart and level descriptions. If you have observed your child in the water, use the descriptions on pages 16 and 17 to determine what level is right for your child. With the exception of Star Leadership 7, our unparented swim programs have two levels in each swim class. Once your child can confidently complete the skills in the first level they will move to the next (for example, once Bobbers successfully complete their skills, they move to Floaters). Depending on skill level, your child can be enrolled in the second level to start.

Contact your local YMCA and speak with a certified swim instructor.

Book a swim assessment with one of our aquatics team members - it’s free!

Ask your child’s swim intructor on the last day of lessons where to place your child for the next session.

Use your child’s online swim report card to determine what skills match which level. To access your child’s report card, visit www.ymcacalgary.org/reportcards. Use your membership or swim access card barcode number to login.

CHILDREN & YOUTH LEARN TO SWIM - OTTERS & SEALS AGE:6Y - 17Y Your beginner-level swimmer will learn foundational swimming skills that will be applied throughout their future aquatic activities. They will improve their body awareness and motor skills as they submerge, kick, roll and jump in the water. Otters will learn to go under water and glide on top of the water. Seals will use flutter kicks and rolling the body from side to side for streamlined movement through the water.

We are passionate about helping develop healthy, happy kids.
