BOKS is a physical activity program designed to get kids active and establish a lifelong commitment to health and fitness. We are on a mission to make physical activity and play part of every child’s day.
Want to provide more movement and play for kids?
What is BOKS?
BOKS is a free physical activity program for kids of all ages and abilities.
The BOKS program includes physical activity plans, training, and support needed to get kids moving for up to 45 minutes a day. It also includes shorter movement breaks, games, and activities tailored to your needs as an educator or parent.
Kids are not getting enough physical activity.
Regular physical activity is proven to help prevent and manage non-communicable diseases, and help with physical health, mental health issues, and academic performance and yet, according to Participaction Canada, the 2020 ParticipACTION Report Card gives children and youth a D+ for Overall Physical Activity and a D+ for Sedentary Behaviours.

BOKS resources have been so valuable to my programming this school year. We are currently in the middle of the Bootcamp and my older children are commenting on the differences in their strength.
BOKS has been a life-saver for me. The monthly calendars, YouTube videos, lesson plans, and Bursts have been my ‘go to’ with distance learning.
Having the BOKS Bursts have been a great help with getting the children up and moving while in class, especially since their recess and movement breaks have been modified. As we navigate through these new teaching methods, sometimes time becomes a factor. The videos have been great for the children (and teachers) to see the movements in action and to follow along.
In school, Bursts are done in all of my HPE classes. Lunch hour BOKS sessions began first week of October and is going well. Kids can't get enough of it. Please keep the monthly fitness calendars coming. We love them!
