Exercise, Fun & Fitness
Academy is a high energy, high quality recreational program. The Academy’s philosophy is to allow every child to be challenged in a fun environment with small class ratios and caring certified instructors.
Every program receives a report card, certificate and award at the end of the year. A customized level system is used to ensure all children are challenged and always feel like they are having success.
Now running Mini 2 Classes
Mini 2 session classes pause for a holiday break. The break coincides with York Region’s Grey-Lockdown which goes into effect Monday, December 14th. Mini 2 classes will resume as soon as possible after January 9th (as soon as we are allowed, when the lockdown is lifted).
Registration is open – join any time (prorated fees). We are looking forward to see athletes return to the gym, staying active and fit. We follow strict COVID-19 health and safety procedures, to provide the appropriate comfort level for all participants, family and staff during these challenging times. We’ll be keeping our groups small, with a limited number of groups in the gym at given time, allowing for proper physical distancing.
A few highlights for this FALL:
