Champions for Life Program – Startup Kit
Our fun and engaging program helps children learn fundamental movement skills, so that they build their confidence and competence in skills like running, jumping, balancing, kicking and throwing.
Our Champions for Life Startup Kit provides a turnkey solution for teachers, daycare educators, and recreation leaders to deliver a 20-week physical literacy program at your school or organization.
The Startup Kit contains:
- A Leader’s Manual including:
- 20 Session Plans
- 4 sets of Challenge Stations and Challenge Sheets
- 51 Cue Sheets for various fundamental movement skills
- List of equipment required to run an effective program
- 40 sets of 16 Skill Cards

The Champions for Life 20-week program consists of four modules. Each module is composed of five sessions. Through demonstrations, practice, games and challenge stations, children will have the opportunity to explore a series of fundamental movement skills in each module. Our richly illustrated session plans focus on a specific fundamental movement skill and clearly explain which activities you will be doing with the children each week. Also included are adaptations and progressions for Kindergarten students and students in Grades 1 and 2, but the program is adaptable to all children at the elementary school level.
