Physical Education Classes
Go T.E.A.M. offers a child-centered approach to team sports development and can CREATE a Physical Education program for your school! Our Go T.E.A.M. physical classes have numerous benefits: physical fitness, confidence and stronger self-esteem, more energy, better memory, and simply a good feeling about themselves. Our goal is to provide a group setting in which kids learn the importance of team work and how by working together they can accomplish more.
Teamwork in sports can help give children stronger communication skills and teach them to work better with others not just on the sports field but also in their families and classroom interactions. The team work involved in sports allows kids to become part of something of value, teaching them to help others on their team when they are struggling, and offer words of encouragement. Teamwork also helps children learn to deal with conflict and provides exposure to a variety of ideas within the team.
Our Go T.E.A.M. coaches also want to work with parents and educators to focus on creative ways to incorporate exercise into the everyday routines of our children. Indoor and outdoor games, and playful workout routines can be the tools that instill the lasting joy of exercise!
