Overview

Our STEM and soccer programs can be conducted during staff professional development time, helping reduce the burden of hiring substitute teachers. Students love the novel experience of spending time with our college coaches while playing sports, engaging in STEM and having fun. Students play a different game each day, focusing on a specific STEM topic and soccer technique.

Outcomes

  • A new and exciting experience for the students
  • Increase engagement in STEM
  • Improved school climate
  • Increase in physical activity
  • Our college coaches create a meaningful mentorship experience

Sample Schedule

  • Every hour during teacher professional development time
  • Students rotate every 1 or 2 hours
  • Ratio of 20 students to 1 coach

How It Works

Our STEM and Soccer Programs are developed and tailored for each district and school, but our methodology and results are consistent.

Directors of School Partnerships work with each client to create a program tailored to your school’s values and desired outcomes. Our Directors of School Partnerships will set up a program that exceeds expectations and ensures a smooth partnership process that is responsive to your needs and those of your staff and parent bodies.

Discovery Organization Implementation Assessment

Step 1 –
Discovery:
Our Regional Manager will sit down with each Principal to review school values, identify specific goals and needs, and outline organizational details.

Step 2 –
Organization:
The Principal identifies which students will participate on each given day.

Step 3 –
Implementation:
Based on the identified goals and values, grade levels, and age ranges, our coaches recommend appropriate games and activities. From there, we arrive early, meet staff and sign in at the front office, and handle setup. Then the fun and learning begins.

Step 4 –
Assessment:
Sports For Learning provides each client with research-based evidence of the effectiveness of our programs. Each program is currently evaluated using the Sports For Learning research tool, which measures the following areas:

Knowledge of
STEM

School connectedness
