Sportime & SPARK Activation Grant

To celebrate Sportime’s 50th Birthday, we are excited to offer (50) Let’s Move! Active Schools Activation Grants to help schools get active before, during, and after school!


Congratulations Grant Award Winners!

We received over 500 applications from schools across the country for the Activation Grant. Applications were submitted by Physical Education Teachers, Health Teachers, Classroom Teachers, Wellness Coordinators, Principals, PTA Members, and other members of the school community.

Applicants expressed the need for physical education curriculum – many teachers do not have any curricular materials for physical education and have to create their own lesson plans and assessments – as well as a variety of equipment to help engage large class sizes, include students with special needs, and to introduce lifelong activities other than traditional sports. Applicants also aimed to increase activity throughout the school day by integrating physical activity into classrooms and before/after school programs.

Congratulations to the grant winners!

I attended SPARK training this summer in San Diego and just wanted to let you know how it has impacted my teaching, even after 25 years... I guess you CAN teach an old dog new tricks! My favorite...
