The Council for Lifelong Recreational Sports Projects
We collaborate with the U.S. Tennis Association and the National Archery in Schools Program to provide workshops and sessions at state, regional, and national AAHPERD conferences. We provide members with updates and useful information to enable them to be safe and effective participants and instructors in lifelong recreational sports.
The Council for Lifelong Recreational Sports produces the popular lead-up games project. A lead-up game isolates one or more of the skills, rules, and/or strategies used to play the actual sport it mimics. Lead-up games help you learn these components in a fun way. As more and more schools and recreation programs focus on lifelong recreational sports, lead-up games play an important role in preparing people to participate in the actual sport.
We invite you to submit your favorite lead-up games in any lifelong recreational sport to be posted on this Web site for others to use. They may eventually be assembled in a book. Email your lead-up game to the project director, Curt Hinson. Be sure to include your name so you can get credit as the author. Take this opportunity to get published and share your expertise with other professionals in the field. If we each give a little, we will all gain a lot.
