Webinar: Addressing Physical Activity in Youth – From Evidence to Practice

With close to 60 million students enrolled in grades K-12 nationally, schools are critical settings to promote physical education and physical activity (PE/PA). By creating environments that encourage students to be physically active and reach the nationally-recommended 60 minutes a day, schools can further contribute to the health and academic success of its students. Through this webinar, attendees will:

– Learn about the Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP), a multi-component approach by which schools and school districts can help students increase physical activity minutes and acquire the knowledge, skills, and confidence to pursue a lifetime of meaningful engagement in physical activity.

– Deepen their knowledge on the health and academic benefits and current state of PE/PA in schools.

– Understand their role in promoting active school environments in school districts and schools across the country.
