Junior Coach Brady Makes Excellent Happen

  1. Updates

Junior Coach Brady attends Congdon Elementary School in New Bedford and works with Site Coordinator Caitlin. Brady is a natural born leader who consistently upholds Playworks' core values. He's always on time for training and recess, thinks outside the box, and helps in any way.

Brady has embraced his role as a student leader at Congdon and is always looking to help other students. In October, Brady helped teach younger students to play games independently of a Playworks-trained adult. He knew which games would be age appropriate and led them with great reception. Brady has even helped transform the game of lava during kindergarten recess.

Brady serves as a role model. His continuous encouragement and positive attitude have rubbed off on students around him. Now, students don't start games until they receive a high-five from Brady. As soon as the game begins, all students waiting in line actively cheer on their friends.

The Congdon and Playworks community appreciate Brady for his incredible display of leadership and kindness towards others. We look forward to seeing him continue to grow as a student, leader, and Junior Coach.
