Studies have shown that recreation, sport, and physical activity are integral to building resilience in children. Through participation in organized activities children are developing core characteristics that will help them overcome challenges associated with the military lifestyle.
“My dad is in the Air Force, and I spent most of my elementary school years in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. When we moved, I found it really hard to fit in. Everything was so big and busy, and my new high school had hundreds of kids in each grade. I eventually made friends, but it was not easy. There were days I felt invisible.” – Champions Program Participant
