Canadian Tire Jumpstart Play From Home: Girls in Sport Video Series

CT Jumpstart Play From Home: Girls in Sport Video Series
Girls in Sport videos are targeted for girls 6 to 10 years old without experience in the sport. Each video features at Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre staff member coaching the drills and they can be done at home with minimual equipment. 

Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre partnered with Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities to help create the Play From Home: Girls in Sport instructional video series.

In March 2020 as an immediate response to the suspension of sport & group physical activity programs, Jumpstart launched #PlayFromHome – a digital resource that allowed children and their families to access sport & physical activity content from the safety of their homes. 

In 2021, Jumpstart built on the learnings garnered from the early days of #PlayFromHome to address the sport related problem of providing children and youth access to quality sport programming with a March Break Camp, Active Together After School and the most recent Girls in Sport program offering. Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre was selected as a primary partner for the Girls in Sport offering because of our broad range and knowledge in several different sports. 

The Girls in Sport videos are targeted for girls 6 to 10 years old without experience in the sport. Each video features at Toronto Pan Am Sports Centre staff member coaching the drills and they can be done at home with minimual equipment. 

The key areas of focus in each video are as follows:

  • Introducing the girls to each activity/sport
  • A warm-up routine
  • The fundamentals or skills of each activity/sport
  • Drills to help them learn how to play each sport
  • A cool-down routine
Running

Basketball

Soccer

Volleyball

 

Additonal Play From Home: Girls in Sport instructional videos are available on the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Youtube channel.
