Resources for Schools can help to build and sustain opportunities for children and youth to develop fundamental movement skills, an appreciation for sport, and the habits that lead to a physically active lifestyle.

  • WAFL Equipment Lending Library: Rural schools can apply in the Fall to borrow ski and snowshoe equipment from Yukon's Winter Active for Life (WAFL) Library free of charge for the Winter season.
  • Playground Leadership for Grades 6 to 8 students. This training develops leadership skills among intermediate students. Students learn how to lead fun and engaging playground activities to share with younger students.
  • Pedometer Loan Out: Borrow a set of pedometers for your classroom for 2 to 3 months. A small deposit of $12 per pedometer is required. Also available for loan is the "Steps Count" Kit filled with reference books, resources and ideas for using pedometers in the classroom.
  • Cycle Smart offers an in-class session on basic bicycle safety and helmet use, and an on-bike playground session. Cycle Smart is available for rural schools (on-bike only) and Grades 4 and 5 classes in Whitehorse.
