Introducing PLAY Central
PLAY Central is a multi-sectoral coalition of groups and organizations that extends south to Olds, west to Rocky Mountain House, north to Ponoka and east to Stettler. Organizations taking a lead on this initiative include Alberta Health Services, Alberta Sport Development Centre (ASDC) Central, Be Fit for Life, The City of Red Deer, Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools, Red Deer College and Red Deer Public Schools.
Along with formal and informal leaders with the Central Alberta community, PLAY Central members are working together to share resources, while offering training and special events that promote the importance of physical literacy, fundamental movement skills and active living at all ages and stages in life within the Central Alberta community.
Over the past year, meetings have been attended by a variety of individuals who have represented the adapted, early childhood, education, First Nations, health, recreation, seniors and sports communities within Red Deer and in Central Alberta.
