LMASPhysical Activity Leader Learning System and Training


PAL-logo2The Physical Activity Leader (PAL) Learning System is the professional development resource within Let's Move! Active Schools, which is a comprehensive program that empowers school champions (Physical Education teachers, classroom teachers, principals, administrators, and parents) to create active environments that enable all students to get moving 60 minutes a day and reach their full potential.

The Physical Activity Leader (PAL) Learning System is designed to develop and support individuals who will champion an effort in their local schools/school district to ensure 60 minutes a day of physical activity for all school-age youth. The twelve month PAL Learning System is a dynamic, action-focused initiative resulting in skilled individuals who will initiate tailored plans of action in their respective school settings. 

The PAL Learning System begins with a one-day in person training. These trainings are skill building leadership workshops targeted for groups of 30-50 Physical Activity Leaders (PALs). PAL trainers, training materials, communications and logistical support for these offerings are provided. 

Along with the one-day training, the PAL Learning System also provides an online learning community and a vast array of helpful resources to support you after your in-person PAL training has taken place. Trainers and Champions benefit from the community by connecting to share experiences, success stories and problem solving methods. The Learning System's suggested milestones and global engagement approach utilized during training ensure that PALs are set up for success! 

The PAL Learning System is provided at no cost to those who are willing to be champions.
