Any child who attends grade school at home is eligible to participate, and is open to both UAB affiliated and non-UAB affiliated persons. The program seeks to build skills in physical education and team sports. We have approximately 5-10 physical education students observing and helping out with the program every year. These students have at least obtained a “Junior” status in college (over 60 hours earned). The observation students often observe at various schools and have underwent thorough background checks.
