Other Workshops Parkland Valley Offers:
SPRA Play Leadership
Play Leadership training ensures that plat leaders have the knowledge and skills necessary to plan and coordinate safe, accessible and enjoyable play opportunities for children. The training consists of 8 modules, each dealing with a core competency for the play leader.
HIGH FIVE® Principles of Healthy Child Development (PHCD) is a one-day training that will help front-line leaders (anyone working with children aged 6 to 12 – i.e. camp counselor, coach, swim instructor) improve the quality of programs. It provides in depth training in the HIGH FIVE® principles of healthy child development so front-line leaders understand what they need to do to ensure each child’s social, emotional and cognitive needs are met. Leaders learn activities and gain knowledge, tips and resources to enhance their programs as well as their relationships with children and other staff members.
HIGH FIVE® Quest training is for any supervisor who is responsible for quality assurance and support of programs offered to children in middle childhood. This workshop will provide practical training on the use of the quality assurance measurement tool to evaluate current children’s sport and recreation programs. Quantitative results from these assessments allow organizations to track their improvements in quality programming.
Take the Lead is a resource focused upon leadership skill development and increased physical activity in youth ages 11-14. The purpose of this program is to train and mentor young people so that they can practice leading active play opportunities. Once they’ve completed Take the Lead! training, SPRA is confident that the Youth Leaders will have the ability to foster leadership skills within their schools and communities. They will provide more physical activity and active play opportunities for their peers and in the future they will be able to draw upon these skills as they reinvest in our communities.
