What is Hamilton Moves?

HAMILTON MOVES is a collaborative project funded by Ontario Trillium Foundation that brings together SportHamilton, City of Hamilton Recreation, City of Hamilton Public Health Services , Hamilton Wentworth Catholic District School Board and Sport for Life, to build upon the work being done around Physical Literacy for children in the Hamilton community.

Our goals for the next three years include:

  • Train 2000 coaches and volunteers to provide high quality Physical Literacy programming with our partner, Sport for Life.
  • Provide 20,000 parents with communication about Physical Literacy.
  • Engage 300,000 people through social media.
  • Result: 75,000 children aged 0 – 10 having improved confidence, competence, and motivation to be physically active for life.
