Raise the Bar Intramural Program
Ophea’s Raise the Bar Intramural Program consists of everything you and your students need to help plan and run quality, inclusive, and sustainable intramurals.
The program is based on the belief that all participation is equal and that quality intramurals are student-focused, inclusive, fun, and include diverse activities that maximize physical activity participation for all students.
The Raise the Bar Intramural Program is free-of-charge and guides you through an easy-to-follow 4-step process to keep you on track, monitor your success, and provides you the opportunity to be recognized as an Ophea Intramural Participant School. Applications will be accepted until May 31, 2019.
This program provides support to educators who are new to running intramurals, those who are currently running intramurals and are interested in new and different tools and strategies, and/or those who are looking to increase student leadership opportunities within their school. Strategies on how to create a safe and inclusive environment that fosters a sense of belonging are provided in order to help your students develop their social skills, co-operation, teamwork, leadership, physical literacy, and overall well-being.
The Raise the Bar Intramural Program also offers Student Leadership Conferences for individual school boards and fee-for-service workshops to support implementation.
Raise the Bar Intramural Program is also available in French as Visez plus haut : programme intramuros.
Ophea's Raise the Bar Intramural Program is funded by the Government of Ontario.
