Active Start

Active Start is a program for children ages 3.5- 7 years old designed to teach the fundamental movement and sports skills needed to enjoy an active lifestyle. Based on the Long Term Athletic Development Model developed by Canadian Sport for Life, this program will target skills including running, jumping, catching, throwing, kicking, striking, balancing and body awareness.  

Support is provided to each child through staff and volunteers to ensure success. Active Start not only encourages physical development but fun social interaction with peers.


In fall 2021, there will be two Active Start programs running at the Waterloo site of KidsAbility, 500 Hallmark Drive:

  • Thursdays - October 14 to December 16 (8 weeks)
  • Mondays - October 18 to December 6 (8 weeks)
