BOKS is a FREE physical activity program that improves our children physically, mentally and socially by strengthening their minds and bodies through movement

Learn More

BOKS Canada has made getting our students active easy and fun. The ready-made trainer guides, and online resources, make it easy to plan a session I know will make a difference in the kids. The mix between the skill of the week and a few games make it a fun combination for the students to learn something new. I have never seen students so excited to do the plank, or burpees. We do ours during lunch hour, and the students always walk away with a burst of energy and are ready to learn in the afternoon.
