Inactive Leaders Status Form

The Inactive Leaders Status is good for one year and begins in January of the inactive year. Leaders may apply for an Inactive Leaders Status under the following circumstances:

  • Leaders will be out of the country and not leading fitness classes
  • Leaders will be within Canada but will not be teaching fitness classes for a one year period due to sick leave, injury, maternity, work or education leave.

In place of the annual certification fee, a $50.00 Inactive Leaders Status Fee will be charged so that Leaders will maintain all of the benefits of certification, including access to the Fitness Focus newsletter and the Resource Centre for Sport Culture and Recreation.

Leaders under Inactive status will not be covered under the SPRA Fitness Leaders Liability Insurance. New Leaders will not be eligible for Inactive Status until after their first year of certification is complete. 

If a Leader wants to return from Inactive Status during the same year, they may do so by paying a $35 Certification/Insurance Activation Fee.
