MOVE to Learn

MOVE to Learn helps children be their best in class, learn the benefits of moving and support their path to be active for life.

Through programs, resources, mentorships and workshops, MOVE to Learn creates an environment for teachers - and schools - to confidently increase movement opportunities in children's every day learning environment.

Schools can sign up as an MOVE to Learn School with access to initiatives and ongoing support from a viaSport Regional Alliance partner, or sign up for individual initiatives. With a flexible design, schools can choose the amount of initiatives and format that suits their need.
