SCHOOL PROGRAMS 2022
The NAofA has released our School Programs 2022 Edition Program to ensure schools know they have a solution to providing Physical Education Programs to their student bodies.
The National Academy of Athletics is on a mission to bring youth sports to kids throughout the nation. We use sports to promote positive mental and physical development in our youth. Our goal is to diminish childhood obesity by advocating for healthy lifestyles while providing tools to boost confidence, optimism, enthusiasm, and personal growth.
Health Benefits of PE
We all know the health benefits of PE, being active, and participating in sports and athletics, but studies show that now more than ever, these are vital instrumental parts of offering Social & Emotional Learning (SEL). It is the most powerful (and unappreciated) ‘medicine’ for present and future health issues – For the body, mind, and spirit.
Teaching SEL through physical education helps students navigate many of their challenges each day. It promotes academic achievement and positive social behavior while reducing conduct problems, substance abuse, and emotional distress.
Advantages to engaging an agency for physical education and activities in school
Partnering with a physical education agency provides an alternative to hiring traditional educators. The right partner can provide school districts with all the advantages of the employer, employee relationship without having to deal with the disadvantages.
- A more extensive variety of programming
- Lower costs
- Easier to manage via contract
- Access to sports specific trainers
- Offers classroom teachers breaks
- Provide continuity
- Scheduling flexibility
These programs are affordable and more cost-effective than hired credentialed Physical Education Teachers. Schools will see additional savings when NAofA Physical Activity Specialists manage the entire program and take on the role of traditional yard supervisors. The concept is to work with schools under tight budget constraints provide daily breaks for the teaching staff while keeping students engaged, healthy and active.
Why Schools are choosing to Partner With the National Academy of Athletics.
