Coach Bell’s Sports Pods
Looking for something to do after school or on school (but not work) holidays? Try Coach Bell’s after-school sports and group games groups as well as camp days on parent-teacher conference days and professional development days. https://coachbellsports.com/programs
These pods will be organized by grades 2nd & 3rd graders together one day a week and 4th & 5th graders one day a week. The groups will participate in different team sports as well as a variety of group games. These groups are small to work on both team and individual growth and development mentally, emotionally, and physically. There are so many core values and positive character traits you can gain from physical activities like perseverance, commitment, dedication, hard work, teamwork, discipline, integrity, sportsmanship, leadership, respect, responsibility, being unselfish, effort, communication, empathy, passion, develop a work ethic, and these different traits can help children at a very young age with self-awareness, self-confidence, self-respect, positive self-esteem, as well as building others up versus breaking others down. The entire program is centered around team building as well as individual growth through sports and group games.
