Fitness Friends began in 1999 as an ideal way for students of all abilities to get active – together. Fitness Friends can take place during physical activity classes, recess, or lunch. Fitness Friends is offered to schools at no cost and has engaged hundreds of participants and educators annually.
Educators partner students as Fitness Friends encouraging students who may now know each other to enjoy physical activities. Activities can include games, sports or recreation – activities should be active, fun and inclusive.
Each participating school can involve as many students are they wish/classes and entire schools can get involved as well. Fitness Friends should share their stories and how much time is dedicated to promoting inclusive opportunities.
