Active youth across Canada now have access to important information about the interconnections between air quality, asthma, allergies and exercise. Through Air Aware’s new sport/recreation module, entire teams, their coaches, parents and league administrators can learn how to play an active role in the protection of their own health as it relates to air quality and ultimately improve the sporting experience for all.
According to a recent survey conducted by TrueSport Canada, 55% of boys and 44% of girls, 15 years of age or younger, are active in sport. 1.8 million Canadians coach amateur sport, 800,000 participate as amateur referees or officials, and 2 million volunteer their time as administrators or helpers in amateur sport.
We aim to reach up to 15,000 active youth and up to 45,000 adults in the sport/recreation community across Canada. If your team or league is interested in learning more about the program and how it can benefit your group, please contact OR Book a champion NOW!
Each Sport/Recreation Champion Presentation includes:
- Interactive live presentation delivered by one of our inspiring Clean Air Champions – an Olympic, Paralympic or National team athlete.
- Access to online resources (games, quizzes, learning activities)
- Opportunities to win a GIANT bike!
We all know that being active is good for us. Air Aware takes it one step further to make the connection between the decisions we make to adopt healthier, more active, less fossil fuel dependent lifestyles and the effect this can have on our health and air quality.
55% of the Canadian population is involved, in one way or another, in sport (from volunteers, parents, athletes etc) but not one club or organization has any type of education program that integrates air quality, asthma and allergies?
