Active On The Sidelines

Check Out Our Spring 2023 Programs Here

We are excited to announce that we were selected for a grant for the ParticipACTION Community Challenge coming June 1-30! We’re doing our part to level the playing field by empowering individuals and strengthening communities through the power of sport and physical activity.

The Community Challenge is a national physical activity initiative that encourages everyone to get active together throughout June, with Canada’s most active community winning the top prize of $100,000 to go towards local physical activity and sport initiatives. 

Anyone can participate in the ParticipACTION Community Challenge by downloading and tracking their movement on the free ParticipACTION app throughout June, or by joining local Community Challenge activities like our Active On The Sidelines Challange

This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.

Spring Registration Now Open for Indoor Program at WMC!

Instead of watching, why not get active during your child’s practice?

Active On The Sidelines is programming for caregivers and older siblings to be active during their child’s sport programming, such as soccer, hockey or swim team practices.

Build confidence in sport, create social connections, and be a positive role model for your family!

Great for parents, sibilings and grandparents!
