Program Delivery Options
Any teacher, sport club coach or community recreation leader is capable of delivering basic Run, Jump, Throw (RJT) movement fundamentals in fun and innovative ways to children. Athletics Canada partners with these leaders, to insure fundamental sport skills are developed by Canadian children and youth.
RJT program delivery options include:
- Direct Delivery – trained RJT instructors visit a school or club to conduct fun, age appropriate lessons that teach the basics of movement. RJT instructors work with the classroom teacher to deliver these fundamental skills during a 6 – 8 week period.
- Teacher Inservicing – experienced RJT Learning Facilitators visit a school to train teachers as RJT instructors and prepare them to use the RJT program in their classroom.
- Track Club/Community Centre – RJT instructors teach a 10-week Run, Jump, Throw program through a community centre. Track clubs can also utilize RJT to help introduce Peewee athletes (age 7 – 11) to the fundamentals of running, jumping, and throwing.
