Skillastics® is proud to announce a partnership with SPARK, the leader in researched-based Physical Education and Physical Activity Programs for PreK-12 grade students.
Skillastics®, now a SPARK Recommended Resource, will enhance SPARK activities by providing an additional assessment tool, allowing the instructor the freedom to view a large amount of children engaging in activities supported by a SPARK lesson. This partnership was formed to foster greater access to quality physical activity solutions for schools and community-based organizations nationwide.
“We are thrilled to partner with a quality, research-based program like SPARK, and believe Skillastics® Activity Kits will prove to be an excellent supplement for SPARK teachers and youth leaders”, said Sandy “Spin” Slade, President of Skillastics®. “Collaborating with SPARK is a demonstration of our commitment to create effective standards-based activities that contribute to children having a positive experience in being physically active”.
SPARK is a research-based organization that disseminates evidence-based Physical Education, After School, Early Childhood, and Coordinated School Health programs to teachers and recreation leaders serving Pre-K through 12th grade students.
Each SPARK program strives to foster environmental and behavioral change by providing a coordinated package of highly active curriculum, on-site teacher training, extensive follow-up support, and content-matched equipment.
Since 1989, SPARK has provided curriculum, training, and consultation to over 100,000 teachers and youth leaders, representing many thousands of schools, organizations, and agencies worldwide.
