As some of you may know all funds for after school programs was cut last year in Toronto. The Ontario government did a cut off $25M in funding for specialized school programs. Therefore TGSA was forced on putting the program on hold and to look for an alternative location to continue the program.
A couple weeks ago TGSA received a phone call from the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) asking if there was still an interest in a gym permit. Replied was YES with no hesitation. TGSA used to run after school programs for the last 5 years at Kipling Collegiate Institute every Tuesday evening and Saturday afternoon.
Starting Monday December 9, 2019 the program will be held every Monday evening from 6.30 PM to 8 PM at Kipling Collegiate Institute. The last indoor sesson for the season will be on Monday May 25th, 2020.
Breakdown of the program, first 30 minutes the focus will be on fitness than a short break finishing off with 30 minutes of soccer. To the program this year will be added to educate the participants on nutritions. Healthy eating is a way of life. TGSA plan is to educate the young girls in the community as well as the parents on the importance to establish food routines that are simple, realistic and enjoyable!
