To be accepted, the above five elements must be taught using at least five of the attractions within Big Fun Play Centre, and at least five staff members must be used in the routine’s implementation. Big Fun Play Centre is a great place for school children to exercise, play, and learn in a healthy, safe, and stimulating environment, and we’d like our scholarship program to help a deserving student achieve his or her educational, health, and fitness goals.

The Routine

Submitted fitness routines must be suited for 20-40 school-aged children, with all five attractions being used at the same time, and the full routine cannot exceed 90 minutes. Routines shall be composed of five to ten attractions; students will spend five to ten minutes at each station, with one to two minutes of travel time between attractions. Each activity shall have its health benefits and activated muscle groups highlighted, and it must include a fun aspect as well. The goal of a submitted routine is to give children’s groups the chance to enjoy a fun, yet engaging class that helps kids build a solid foundation for a lifelong love of fitness. The winning fitness routine will be taught by Big Fun Play Centre’s staff during events for Alberta, Canada’s school systems.
