What is ACT-i-Pass?

London’s Child & Youth Network (CYN), along with their partners, are happy to offer the ACT-i-Pass to Grade 5 students in the City of London for the entire school year. By using the pass, Grade 5 students (plus 1) will have FREE access to indoor sports, skating, swimming, rounds of golf and other activities. The Grade 5 cohort has been chosen as research shows that physical activity begins to decrease in children as early as the age of 9 years. If grade 5 students can access physical activity opportunities, they will be given a chance at better health, longer lives, less illness, reduced screen time, and more play!

Register for the 2020-21 ACT-i-Pass now!!!!

How can I register my child?  To register your child for the 2020-2021 ACT-i-Pass program, your child must have entered Grade 5 in September of 2020. Complete the registration form at the link provided: Registration Link.

What is the Purpose? The purpose of the program is to increase a child’s ability to participate in physical activity, which can improve health, lengthen life, decrease illness, reduce screen time, and increase play in their lives! This project has been endorsed by, and has passed the ethical standards of, Western University and all school boards in London.

Why Evaluate the Program? Our team is studying the effectiveness of the Child & Youth Network’s Grade 5 ACT-i-Pass Program, to evaluate its effectiveness for improving children’s access to public recreation facilities and programs, and increasing their participation in physical activities.

Parents have the option of participating in two unique evaluation opportunities this year:

  1. Parents are invited to complete the demographic survey after the registration form. It only take 5 to 10 minutes to complete, and everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a draw to win one of five $50 Amazon.ca Gift Cards. The survey asks questions about your household and child, and how their physical activity has been impacted by COVID-19.
  2. Parents are also invited to participate in a 30-45 minute interview with us via Microsoft Teams. During this interview, we will ask questions about your child’s physical activity, how COVID-19 has impacted it, and how ACT-i-Pass can help to get your child back to being active. Everyone who participates in an interview will receive a $15 Amazon.ca Gift Card.

Participation in this study is completely voluntary and is not required to receive the ACT-i-Pass.
