About the Webinar
Physical activity is a very important part of children’s daily routine and may even be more important during our current health crisis. The benefits of exercise for children are well documented. They are used to having scheduled active time while in school and as much as possible we should encourage them to make some form of exercise part of their daily schedule, even while physical distancing. Join Russ Carson, Research and Health & Wellness Advisor for PlayCore, to learn strategies for encouraging play and recreation during Covid-19 and keeping kids active while physical distancing.
