When children acquire and practice fundamental movement and sport skills at a young age they are more likely to stay active and maintain healthy habits in adulthood.  YMCA Staff that lead these programs are trained in National Coaching Certification Program Fundamental Movement Skills (NCCP FMS).  Aligned with the Canadian Sport for Life’s Long-Term Athlete Development Framework (CS4L LTAD), all YMCA programs provide children and youth the opportunity to practice and improve their physical literacy skills, develop movement confidence and the skills to be “Active for Life."
