I realize there are times when it may be time consuming to find what you are looking for at various websites searching for something specific. There is a lot of beneficial information on the SHAPE America website that we would like to highlight for you in the hope that it can be useful and assist you in delivering quality programs to your students and school.
As a member of SHAPE America’s Physical Activity Council, I would like to share with you SHAPE America’s Position Statement on Before and After School Physical Activity information, which you can find at this link: https://goo.gl/FPUZSR . The position statement shares Goals and Characteristics of a Before and After School program. It describes very specifically how to Organize and Administer an Intramural program, including staff to student ratios based on grade level, type of activity and equipment, facility and safety concerns. This can be a very useful tool for a staff person (Physical Education teacher) to use when approaching administration about requesting a Before and After School Physical Activity and Intramurals program.
The Position Statement includes the argument that this should be a complement to a high quality Physical Education program. This is a perfect follow up to the recently posted PE vs PA Infographic just released by SHAPE America, which you can find here: https://goo.gl/XeGkdP
SHAPE America is here to help you deliver the highest quality program possible to your students and school. Please be sure to use the SHAPE America website as a resource and we encourage you to take advantage of the MySHAPE Member’s Voice to share questions and valuable resources.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
