Recess Coaching


Recess Coaching at Bellwood Elementary

Using energy, imagination, and proven techniques, Recess Coaches cultivate an inclusive environment that encourages all children to participate regardless of athletic ability, weight, or disability. Using basic supplies such as balls, jump ropes, and cones, the Coaches participate in recess every day by leading play activities that foster physical, social, and emotional development of the children. Improved play time has the wellness benefit of increased physical activity, and studies have shown that attendance, classroom behavior, and problems with bullying have also improved.

In the Richmond region, Greater Richmond Fit4Kids has Recess Coaches on site at multiple schools. With extensive training, Fit4Kids offers Recess Coaching to a number of schools in the Richmond region.
