Playworks’ Junior Coach Conference a Blast for Kids

  1. Updates

Sherman Elementary was descended upon by 150 4th and 5th graders from 18 elementary schools across San Francisco and Marin County when Playworks took full advantage of the SFUSD furlough day supplying an opportunity for students in our Junior Coach Program to receive training on conflict resolution, inclusion on the yard, learn new games, and make friends from other schools.

The day was a great success as Junior Coaches explored Playworks’ four core values: healthy play, respect, inclusion, and healthy community.  JCs learned some new games they could use to get more kids involved, like creative relay races, tag, and stretches.  The students had a blast, many saying, “We had so much fun, when is the next one?”  Playworks staff hope that students will take the skills they learned at the conference out to their schools to make recess an even more safe and inclusive space.
