Who Is Involved
A wide representation of Canada's exceptional children's sport and recreation providers use HIGH FIVE®. From after-school programs to organizations that span the country, hundreds of organizations, community groups, and programs have chosen to implement the HIGH FIVE standard to ensure they're offering 'The Best Way to Play'.
Organizations that directly deliver sport and recreation programs to children aged 6 to 12 can register with the HIGH FIVE standard. This means that the organization is declaring its committment to ensuring every child in its programs has a positive sport and recreation experience.
