Led by trained instructors, the program provides youth to participate in an inclusive & positive sports environment. With over 130 games & activities, the HopOn curriculum has 5 levels of adaptability to meet the needs of the participants’ development stage.

The sessions will take place at the Markdale Rotary Park.. The instructor will be Dawn Gillen.
