Our registered programs for kids are fun and affordable! Located in north Calgary, our youth after school and weekend programs utilize the entire facility to incorporate fun, facilitate friendships, build confidence and teach children new ways to be active!
While your child plays, we offer a special rate for siblings to play in the indoor playground and two lounges for the parents to relax or finish up work from the day!
Participants become well-rounded athletes by exploring movement on a variety of equipment:
Trampoline fitness & games
Ninja Warrior courses
Military obstacle course
InjaNation Games Race
The InjaNation Games consists of a race through the Ninja course, Military course, and various other physical challenges in a race format designed for program participants on their last day of the session. It is a competition within our supportive and inclusive community to celebrate personal improvement in speed, agility, and physical and mental strength.
All efforts are celebrated by attendees, no matter how big or small. Points will be awarded for the obstacles and challenges successfully completed and the time the participant completes their race. Family and Friends are encouraged to come cheer on the participants to create our very own American Ninja Warrior style of event!
We believe in anti-specialization as research has shown that those who played many different sports and activities resulted in being better overall athletes.
InjaNation hosted Athlete Development & Sport Conditioning expert, Rich Hesketh and Olympian, Jessica Zelinka to discuss the return to fundamentals in sport, over specialization, and ways that parents and coaches can elevate their child’s performance.

This is the first activity my child has taken where it is hard to get her to leave after each class. She constantly told me how much she loved the program and couldn’t wait until the next week. Her coach was amazing with the kids and it was nice to see how enthusiastic the coaches are there. We would sign up next session but we’re away for half of it. We’ll be back again!
