Sea to Sky Moves
The Sea to Sky Moves Council (est. 2020) is a shared community initiative and includes
- Lil’wat Nation
- Squamish Nation
The initiative's goal is to improve the development of physical literacy in the Sea to Sky corridor, and increase overall physical activity of all ages to positively impact residents' health and wellbeing.
The WHO identified insufficient physical activity as the 4th leading risk factor for mortality worldwide. Physical inactivity has been further intensified by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Building on the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines and the efforts of Canadian expert groups such as ParticipACTION, Active For Life and Sport For Life, the Council's goal is to educate and motivate the community to increase physical activity in all age groups.

MOVE to Play
For the recreation sector, there is a MOVE to Play Framework that community or rec centres can use to develop programs, training pathways, accountability, etc. This comprehensive document contains many practical tools and resources. It is available for organizations to use on their own, or you can work with a support person to help build quality frameworks in your organization around physical literacy. More resources such as a Fundamental Movement Skills Manual and PL report card can be found on the website. And, if you would like the workshop brought to your centre, we can do this as well. If you would like us to focus on different skills/games, etc we can modify accordingly.
The fundamental movement skills games book can also be purchased through PacificSport Fraser Valley for $40.00. Please email email@example.com if you would like one for you or your centre
