I AM Game is a City of Surrey Initiative that offers sport programs designed to enhance physical literacy and prepare participants of all ages and abilities for lifelong enjoyment of sport and physical activity.

Join an I AM Game program today and practice Fundamental Movement Skills while building confidence, self-esteem and social skills in a fun environment.

"I've seen players grow tremendously over the course of the program. Not only in terms of their skills, but also in the way they interact with the other players. They have learned, through discussions in team huddles and also observation, how important it is to cheer on their team and to be an encouraging player." - R. Frederickson, I AM Game Coach

Four Stages of the I AM Game Approach

The following stages are based on Canadian Sport for Life’s Long-Term Athlete Development model (LTAD). The model provides the framework for all City of Surrey sport programs.

1. Active Start

Helps everyone enjoy and feel successful in sport. The first step is to play fun activities that focus on basic movement skills. These skills build agility, balance, and coordination which form a strong foundation for a variety of sport skills.

2. FUNdamental

Builds on basic movement skills. Participants begin to practice sport-specific skills and techniques through modified games introducing simple rules, basic strategy and spatial awareness.

3. Learn to Play

After fundamental movement skills and basic sport skills have been instructed in Active Start and FUNdamental programs, this stage focuses on mastery of those skills. It also introduces sport-specific strategies, tactics and introductory levels of game play.

4. Sports For Life

Enjoy playing a variety of sports to further develop your skills and knowledge of game strategies.  Participate in drop-in sports, leagues and tournaments. The focus is on fun, fitness, and social game play with options for multiple skill levels.
