Staffing Support – Fall 2020
- Are you bringing back 10% of your students this Fall?
- Do you need help and supervision for your highest-needs students?

We can HELP!
Through our extensive network of collegiate connections, Sports For Learning is uniquely positioned to recruit, train and hire college role-models to care for and engage your students. During this time, we realize that it is difficult to maintain the required ratios while also getting your teachers back on site. Our college coaches can provide the perfect blend of near-peer mentorship, high energy activities while also being available during all times of the day.
Our Lunch Recess programs provide structure to the playground, while keeping students active and engaged. Using our near-peer mentorship model, our college student coaches deliver a blended social emotional learning and sports curriculum. Although our program can cater for all students within a school, many Principals use our Lunch Recess programs for targeted student groups.
Sports For Learning operates while your teachers are engaging in PLC/ PD time. We give schools and Districts the ability to select and plan their own customized PLC release schedules for the school year. This eliminates the need for substitute teachers and lesson plans and maximizes the amount of PLC time you can offer your teachers. Typically, a Principal releases one grade level at a time for a full school day. We supply the appropriate number of staff so that each class can have their own coach.
Our After School programs provide an additional opportunity for children to participate in an organized sports program while keeping kids engaged after school. Our coaches play fun and creative SEL & sports games and scrimmages in order to make sure your students are getting the most out of their after-school time.
This exciting program is guaranteed to increase your Saturday participation, to help boost your average daily attendance figures and recoup funds for your district!
Our fun programming can boost attendance at your summer programs while keeping kids learning and active. Students love the novel experience of spending time with our college coaches while playing sports, engaging in SEL and having fun.
A customized schedule is designed based on the specific needs and schedule of your school.
Your assigned support staff will ensure your program experience is turn-key and exceeds your expectations.
Throughout the program, your assigned Operations Manager will meet with you to collaborate on data collection and continuous improvement.
