YMCA Launches New Online Resource for Teachers

Looking for a fun way to keep your students active? The YMCA has launched YGym, a free virtual physical activity program for young people and families across Canada. Offered in both English and French, YGym includes a variety of physical activity and sports skills videos for students aged 5-9 and 10-15. A fundamental movement video will also be launched soon.

YGym is a great resource for teachers looking for ways to encourage their students to continue developing their physical literacy. Each video is instructed by a YMCA certified fitness coach and features content based on YMCA Canada's Health & Fitness programs and Canada's Physical Activity Guidelines.

Please visit the YMCA’s YGym web page for more information.
