On June 17 & 18, 2013 Motion Fitness will be taking part in the After School program training with their most recent partner SPARK.  SPARK is a research-based, public health organization of San Diego State University Research Foundation (disseminated by School Specialty, Inc.) dedicated to creating, implementing, and evaluating programs that promote lifelong wellness.

The SPARK After School (AS) Physical Activity Program began in 1995 as part of an effort to take lessons learned from the successful SPARK PE program and apply them to “out of PE” settings.

Each spring and summer, SPARK conducts 2 day “Institutes” for the After School program in beautiful San Diego that are similar to the SPARK Premium Program — yet offer an even richer, in-depth SPARK experience.

Top program presenters and authors lead the interactive sessions, a professional family is created, a terrific time is had by all, and attendees leave inspired and motivated to take their programs to the next level.

Motion Fitness will be getting an in depth look into the SPARK after school philosophy: Include ALL youth, actively engage ALL youth, and instill the love of lifelong movement in ALL youth.
