Winter/Spring Weekend Programming for Ages 3-12

Starting this February there are new programs happening with PacificSport. Our ActiveStar and XploreSportZ program is going to be running in new regions on Vancouver Island: South Wellington and the Cowichan Valley, working in collaboration with the RDN and CVRD.

About XploreSportZ

PacificSport VI’s XploreSportZ program introduces kids to FUNdamental skills through the discovery of sport and play. Qualified coaches and leaders introduce sport in a non-competitive environment. Coaches accommodate all skill and experience levels to ensure learning for everyone. Some sports are more traditional such as soccer and some more unique like tumbling. This program is offered for children 6.5-12 years.

About ActiveStar

PacificSport VI’s ActiveStar is a program that was created to help children ages 3-6 learn the FUNdamental movement skills through fun and unique activities. Participants will build confidence, develop their posture and balance and learn to enjoy being active. Parent participation is encouraged but not mandatory, although you must remain in the building while your child is in session.
