Community Coach Parent Program

We all know the benefits of physical activity for our children. But how do we pry them away from their electronic devices and get them moving?

According to the American Academy of Paediatrics:

“Children who regularly see their parents enjoying sports and physical activity are more likely to do so themselves. Play with your children. Help them learn a new sport or another physical activity. Or just have fun together…”
