Transform your After School Physical Activity Program with this simple, step-by-step manual.

  • Easy to read instructions with detailed illustrations
  • Includes over 100 lessons
  • Designed around the Skillastics® Activity Kits


The Skillastics® Physical Activity Program Guide is a powerful resource that includes over 100 lessons containing over 400 fitness and sport skill development activities that span over 26 days.

Why 26 Days?Because 26 is the amount of activities in our Character is Cool Skillastics® Activity Kit. We begin each day with one of these cooperative activities. Each activity in Character is Cool Skillastics® is a teamwork or leadership activity that is associated with a character trait. You begin each day highlighting a character trait like responsibility, teamwork, compassion, respect, sportsmanship and honesty. Additionally, talking points on how a character trait is associated with the activity of the day and how it expands into everyday life is also included.

Each day consists of several lessons that equal 50 minutes of quality, moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) that are aligned with the HEPA 2.0 Standards presented in the following format:

1) Title of activity2) How long the activity will take to execute3) The grade level the activity is appropriate for4) The overview of the activity5) Equipment needed6) Set up with illustrations7) How to teach and play the activity8) Challenges you may encounter9) Quick reference cues

As an added bonus the Lesson Plan Guide also includes an Early Childhood section that includes multiple scarf activities and Halfpint Skillastics® activities.
