Free physical literacy fun for ‘BC Family Day’ at PISE

Feb 03, 2015

(Victoria, BC – February 2, 2015) PISE (Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence) is offering a free Physical Literacy ‘Family Day’ on Monday, February 9 in celebration of the BC Family Day holiday. PISE is located on the Camosun College campus at 4371 Interurban Road, where visitors can enjoy free parking for the day.

The PISE Gymnasium will be open from 10 am – 2 pm and will feature Physical Literacy fun and games for all the family including an obstacle course, that practices fundamental movement skills like balance, throwing, and jumping. Basketball and volleyball stations will also be available. PISE staff will be on hand to facilitate the activities and guide technique, although children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. PISE will also be collecting gently used shoes and donating them to Kicks for Kids!

“We are excited to open our gymnasium doors for families to experience Physical Literacy on BC Family Day,” says PISE CEO, Robert Bettauer. “We know that parents and children love playing together and through participating in Physical Literacy we naturally encourage them to incorporate healthy active living in a fun way into their daily lives.  As Canadian leaders in Physical Literacy, PISE is delighted to share and promote family fun with our community.”

PISE would like to thank the Island Savings PISE SportStart grant for making this event possible!
