Professional Learning

The CHAMPS Sports and Fitness Program promotes student physical activity during the critical years of elementary and middle school.

CHAMPS schools have been selected for the 2017-18 school year. Approved CHAMPS coaches will be contacted when registration links are available; please note target audience and prerequisites.
