Organization Sponsor: St. Francis Xavier University
100 Girls were given the opportunity to experience the following activities: Yoga, Kick boxing, Aerobics, Cheerleading, Nutritional workshop, Styling workshop, ScrapBooking.
STFX, Town and County of Antigonish Recreation Department, Nova Scotia Health Promotion and Protection.
Perhaps offer different activities for next year as well as keep the more popular activities.
This was a perfect opportunity to present new activities to this age group. As a result it has sparked alot of interest in these types of activities. Consideration is being given to offer these specific activities to children here at STFX.
Must be organized well. Promotion of the event through advertisements, schools, recreation departments.
Need enthusiastic instructors and team leaders.
Advertising in away to inspire girls to sign up and try these different activities.Also finding enthusiastic supports to provide personal encouragements to potential participants. Local physical education teachers and recreation directors provided great support.
I have put many man hours into this project but it was well worth it. The girls had a fantastic time and look forward to another year. I have been approached to organize Womens' Day,and a Boys' Day and possibly take this idea to other communities.
Participants came from not only the local area but also Canso, Guysborough, and New Glasgow.
