The goal of our program is to get kids interested in a variety of different games. We feel that introducing them
to games away from the mainstream (basketball, volleyball, soccer, hockey, football) can benefit them in numerous ways.
We believe that by familiarizing children with the games in our program will add a new element to the way they play
sports. Statistics show an increasing drop-out rate of highschool physical education. We feel that an important
cause of this is varying skill levels. Children can have low confidence in their skills due to mainstream
sports. We feel that children of all shapes and sizes can be successful in the various games in our program. Many skills
are also transferrable to mainstream sports which can be used later on in phys-ed classes. Our method of teaching the
skills/strategies/tactics of our games is unique from the elementary and highschool curriculum. We are more centered
around having the children explore the skills on their own, followed by guidance from observation of our councillors.
