The Department of Sports and Athletics should be committed to providing a Sports For All Intramural Sports Program. The mission of Sports For All is to create added experiences for the school's growth and development by encouraging involvement in the present, which will enrich and challenge the future. Competitive and recreational athletics are an integral part of the educational process and experience. Students should have the opportunity to participate and compete as appropriate to their interest and skill. Intramurals provide a co-curricular value by contributing to overall community satisfaction, involvement and learning within a diverse setting, improving student recruitment and retention by adding to the quality of community life and creating a venue for social interaction, integration and leadership activities, which positively affect spirit, mind, and body. As physical educators, we value the lessons that have long been taught by athletic participation: the pursuit of excellence through personal development and teamwork; ethical and responsible behavior on the field and off; adherence to the spirit of rules as well as to their letter; leadership and strength of character; and sportsmanship - including respect for one's opponents, acceptance of victory with humility, and acknowledgement of defeat with grace. In teaching these lessons to students, the Sports For All program will instill habits that will lead students to better and healthier lives. While winning is not an end in itself, we believe that the efforts by our intramural and intermural teams to be their best will lead them to success. Athletic participation is a way for students to grow and learn and to use and develop their personal, physical and intellectual skills. The entire Physical Education and Athletic Departments, including coaches, medical and training staff, facilities and equipment personnel, and administrators, would work to achieve these goals, honor the values of the school and support the principles of the Sports For All intramural program. Physical educators believe that a comprehensive athletic program provides physical, social and emotional benefits that are vitally important in a highly competitive educational environment. Competition, in itself, is a dynamic that plays a vital role in life and is imperative to success. Since the number of students who can compete at the athletic team level is limited, each school should develop an extensive intramural sports program. Let Sports For All be that program!

Although the UK Early Years Physical Activity guidelines recommend that all children should aim to be physically active for 180 mins daily, there is currently no coordinated strategy by which this may be ensured and supported. This book provides the 'go-to' resource for professionals and parents who wish to implement the guidelines and extend their knowledge of children's physical activity and development. The first section introduces and explores the eight guiding principles that support children's physical development, health and wellbeing. It explains why movement plays such a critical role in ensuring smooth overall development and how physical activity informs the skills that support effective communication and school-readiness. The second section offers an adaptable framework for practice with children from 0- 5 years, giving a range of possibilities for implementing the principles effectively.
PUT ME IN, COACH is an award winning, must-have guidebook for parents and their student-athletes who want to be recruited to compete in athletics at the college level. Because of limited roster spots, only a handful of high school athletes will play their sport competitively in college and even fewer will get NCAA or NAIA scholarships. For your child to be one of them, you need a game plan, and the earlier you start, the better. If you are the parent of a student-athlete who is better than most in high school athletics, but college coaches aren't lining up at your door, you will find PUT ME IN, COACH indispensable. Advice and personal observations from 40 college coaches will help you understand how to market your child so coaches take notice, how to get money from any school even those that don t give athletic scholarships, how to identify the colleges that are the right fit for your child, how to understand recruiting from the coaches point of view, and how to make the right impression and get the most out of campus visits. PUT ME IN, COACH has won the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award and the Next Generation Indie Book Award, and was a finalist for the USA Best Books Award.
