ActiveU is proud to offer elective programming for students in grades 1 through 8!
What is an elective?
ActiveU Electives are sessions where Varsity Athletics & ActiveU Staff facilitate physical activity games for your classes, which can be used by teachers again afterwards! The actual structure of the day will be based on the length of time you are visiting with us, but we are flexible and can work with teachers on what works best for their class. Staff communicate ahead of time with teachers to select activities and lesson plans are provided. Sample schedule for electives are as follows:
- 1 Hour Elective – 5 Minute Welcome/Warm-Up, and two 25-minute activity stations
- 1.5 Hour Elective – 5 minute Welcome/Warm-Up, and two 40-minute activity stations
- 2 Hour Elective – 5 Minute Welcome/Warm-Up and three 35-minute activity stations
- 2.5 Hour Elective – 5 Minute Welcome/Warm-Up, and three 45-minute activity stations OR four 30-minute stations based on group size.
Please note we have a maximum capacity of 30 students per station at a time, so please ensure you select an elective structure that will accommodate your total group size.
What are some examples of activities?
The activities will be selected in consultation with the teachers. Generally we have a mixture of sport-based stations (basketball, soccer, ultimate frisbee, flag football, european handball, etc.) and camp/PE style camps (capture the flag, dodgeball). Stations can be designed to be play style or skill/drill style based on teachers requests.
