Catch the Spirit

Help your students Catch the Spirit of the Canada Games – the largest multi-sport and cultural event for youth in the nation!

Designed for teachers by teachers, Catch the Spirit is an elementary school curriculum for students from kindergarten to grade 8 using five overarching themes:

  • Unifying Canada
  • Healthy Living and Sport
  • Official Languages
  • Arts and Culture
  • Goals and Leadership

This newly revamped program may be integrated into classrooms by educators and used as a tool to inspire children about the Canada Games movement and build awareness for the benefits of physical activity and sport. The program also acts as an inspiration for classrooms and schools to create their own mini Canada Games.

Local schools may book a Canada Games Day assembly to help get students excited about the 2019 Games. Approximately 15 minutes in length, the assembly program features the 2019 Games mascot, Waskasoo, visiting central Alberta schools with a mini torch relay and a dynamic presentation about the 2019 Canada Games.
