The Florida Children’s Forum is pleased to be hosting an open registration S.P.A.R.K. (Sports, Play and Active Recreation for Kids) Institute, April 7-8 in Tampa, FL.

(Non-Florida after-school professionals WELCOME, as this training is offered in limited regions of the country!) After-School Professionals may register to attend this comprehensive training program, complete with an exemplary, research-based physical activity and nutrition curriculum, focusing on the development of healthy lifestyles, motor skills, movement knowledge, and social and personal skills. Taught by a motivating, dynamic SPARK Certified Trainer, participants will engage in 6 hours (.6 CEU) of hands-on activity and curriculum training. We recommend sending 1-2 experienced staff members from your program to attend and they can return to your program to share S.P.A.R.K. with your entire staff!
