OVERVIEW
The objective of the Active Start Program is to get children moving and keep them active.  The physical curriculum involves adults and children in play activities that build basic fundamental movement skills such as: running- jumping- twisting- throwing- catching.
The technical requirements are nothing more than encouraging children to enjoy playing with the ball one-on-one with an adult, practicing dribbling, kicking, and shooting.
More information regarding the program curriculum can be found here.

Long Term Player Development is Canada’s structure for athletic development broadly adopted by youth sports.  Players in the Active Start phase should participate in a variety of activities. Swimming and well-structured gymnastics programs are recommended to enhance the full range of basic movement skills and physical literacy.
