Calgary Active Habit Association


Do you care about your child's time in front of screens and lack of healthy activity? Our community of Edgemont is leading the charge to make a change for the better!


Active Habit

Give children healthy lives by creating a daily habit of being physically active within the community.

Active Habit Manifesto:

  • Kids spending long hours in front of screens daily and little time being active is becoming a norm with severe negative consequences.
  • Kids need to be in a healthy group of peers, and make physical activity a habit that they have personal and group commitment to.
  • Parents and student volunteers can efficiently supervise fun and safe local activities.
  • Doing things as locally as possible saves time, money, and the environmental impact of driving.
  

The Long Term Plan:

  • Facilitate community level cooperation for year-wide choices of convenient and affordable activities and play.
  • Kids would track their personal activity achievement with a points system.
  • Adults could track their community involvement to efficiently channel their time and talents into mentoring, supervision, or financial support
  • An online system will be a focal point enabling kids and volunteers to come together for continuously ongoing activities throughout the year
  • Adequate screening and mentoring of volunteers will ensure that kids are safe at all times
