JOHN BYL BURSARY AWARD

Intended for schools to further enhance their intramural program

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS
ANNUAL INDIVIDUAL AWARDS

Since this year's CIRA conference has been postponed due COVID restrictions, the decision has been made not to present our annual individual awards. The executive looks forward to presenting the Doyle-Harkness Award, Rising Professional Award, John Byl Lifetime Achievement Award, and Honourary Award when it is safe for all of us to get together once again.

INTRAMURAL AWARDS
 

During these unique times, the CIRA executive has decided to still reward schools that have adapted to the situation and found a way to run a robust intramural program. Schools that have provided intramural programming for their school community are encouraged to apply for the Outstanding Intramural Achievement Award.

 

Application deadline is April 15, 2021.

ANNUAL CONFERENCE LOCATION

For years, we have been proud to host our annual conference at Geneva Park near Orillia. We have recently learned that the YMCA has initiated the sale of Geneva Park. We are currently considering a number of new locations for our conference. We need to find a location that has accommodations, dining facilities, and a variety of spaces that allow for active workshops. 

 

If you have a suggestion, please contact us.

CIRA Ontario is a registered charity whose mission is to encourage, promote and develop active living, healthy lifestyles and personal growth through intramural and recreational programs within the education and recreation communities.

FOCUS

Hover over each picture to learn more about the topic

Intramurals are a great way to get everyone involved. They provide an opportunity for everyone of all abilities to play, develop skills, have fun and form friendships. 

INTRAMURALS

 

Leadership in sport and recreation involves guidance, direction, control, management and supervision.

LEADERSHIP

 

Lunch and break times provide an ideal opportunity for safe, structured and fun activities to engage all children and help meet recommended guidelines for all children to achieve 60 minutes of physical activity each day. Active playgrounds result in a reduction in break time incidents and accidents as well as a reduction in senior management time spent dealing with accidents and behaviour problems.

ACTIVE PLAYGROUNDS

 

Daily physical activity is a critical component of making sure that publicly funded schools in Ontario are healthy places to learn. Studies have shown that when the physical health and well-being of students is supported, their academic achievement improves as well.

DAILY PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

 

Physical literacy encompasses the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding that establishes purposeful physical pursuits as an integral part of their lifestyle.

PHYSICAL LITERACY

 

Recreational dance refers to any form of dance that is done primarily for its social, educational or health benefits. According to the Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute, dance is among the 12 favourite recreational activities for Canadians of all ages.

DANCE

 

INCLUSION
