The primary goal of CATCH’s Physical Education component is to increase the amount of moderate-to-vigorous activity (MVPA) children engage in during their PE time. CATCH PE encourages and supports the NASPE guideline of 50% MVPA. They also encourage students to receive 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
Our PE programs guide teachers through the whole school year (or summer, in the case of CATCH Kids’ Club), establishing themes and lessons that teachers can utilize directly, or build on to suit their specific schools. CATCH PE is built on our experience that “if it ain’t fun, it don’t get done,” so we focus on helping teachers make PE fun. One of our most popular tools for doing so is the PE activity box, which provides over 250 games and activities tailored for each age group. Kids love the variety of having a different activity to look forward to every day of the school year!
