The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that the rate of childhood and adolescent obesity has nearly tripled over the last twenty years. Playgrounds, free play, and outdoor physical activity programs play a critical role in providing resources to get kids moving again! This workshop provides valuable information for effectively designing play environments and leading standards-based activities to increase children’s physical activity and fitness levels by maximizing the use of your playground.
This program is developed in partnership with PlayCore and The American Association of Physical Activity and Recreation.
