Junior Coach Program

  • The Playworks Junior Coach Program helps empower students to be healthy and effective leaders among their peers.  The program teaches 1st - 5th graders the importance of fair play, inclusion, positive conflict resolution, and teamwork. The training also includes learning a variety of indoor and outdoor games appropriate for all grade levels as well as how to effectively communicate rules and directions to ensure safe and fun interactions.  Once the Junior Coaches complete their training, they assist Coach Jordan with organizing, leading, and monitoring healthy interactions during recess and other physical education times.  Coach Jordan trains Junior Coaches on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:45-4:30.
