To promote the value of physical activity to parents/guardians and teacher/leaders as well as engage them as key decision-makers in the healthy living behaviour of children and youth, PHE Canada, created a new resource, titled Ready, Check Go!

The Ready, Check, Go! resource is a physical activity tracker which is designed to help participants and their parents/guardians understand the importance of and enjoy regular daily physical activity in ways that suit their personal beliefs and needs.

The Ready, Check, Go! Resource includes everything you need:

  • Parent, Child and Leader/Teacher Workbooks to track physical activity (ages 9-11, 12-14)
  • Educational activities that instil the importance of participating in regular physical activity
  • Goal setting worksheets to help enhance physical activity behaviours
  • Inclusive activities for children of all abilities  

The Ready, Check, Go! Workbooks:

Leader/Teacher Guide

This workbook is designed to facilitate the delivery/instruction of Ready, Check, Go! for educators and program leaders. It begins with a brief introduction to important concepts of physical literacy, physical activity and its various levels of intensity, and the importance of the after-school period for increasing levels of physical activity among children and youth.

Electronic versions available for free. Hard copies available for purchase through the PHE Canada Store.

Participant/Student Workbook

This workbook helps participants understand the importance of physical activity, the amount of physical activity that they engage in during a regular (typical) school week and provides a framework to help participants set goals. Participants fill out a log of a typical day, and identify the different activities they undertook, when, and for how long. Once the participants complete this log they assign intensity values to each activity.  Goal Setting activity sheets are included to help participants understand the value of physical activity and how they can modify their own behaviours.

Hard copies available for purchase through the PHE Canada Store.

Parent/Guardian Guide

This workbook is designed to provide background information for parents about the Ready, Check, Go! learning activity, what physical activity is, the importance of regular physical activity and goal setting suggestions.

Electronic versions available for free.
