Kingston Gets Active for free in April

March 27, 2017 -

The City of Kingston is one of many community organizations offering  FREE activities in April as part of Kingston Gets Active Month.

"Finding a new, fun way to get active is what Kingston Gets Active Month is all about.  Use it as an excuse to explore your options and have free fun with family and friends," says Caroline Livingston, assistant supervisor, recreation programs.

Try cheerleading, martial arts, fencing, swimming, skating, kickboxing, Yogalates, tennis or even playing in a pipe band.  While all the activities are free, some require participants to RSVP, so it is a good idea to plan ahead.

During Kingston Gets Active Month, you can:

  • Explore the free community-offered activities at www.KingstonGetsActive.ca  or "Like" Kingston Gets Active on Facebook to receive daily updates on free activities being offered.
  • Take the Kingston Gets Active Wellness Challenge for your chance to win an iPod Shuffle! Participate in the Wellness Challenge at www.KingstonGetsActive.ca and track your April wellness choices, including eating healthily, being mindful, connecting and getting active. 

Grade 5 & 9 students are reminded that their ActivPass offers them free access to City recreational facilities all year long. To get in, Grade 5 students can show their ActivPass and Grade 9 students can show their student identification card.

Kingston Gets Active  increases awareness of and access to physical activities in Kingston, which seeks to improve the quality of sport and physical activity in Kingston. Find out more at www.KingstonGetsActive.ca.
