Create a more active, inclusive and safe schoolyard during recess!

Do you face these challenges during recess at your school?

Bullying & Conflict

  • Recess periods sometimes provide opportunities for bullying, teasing, or student conflicts. 

  • Providing fun and engaging activities at recess can help diminish the negative incidents.

Exclusion & Isolation

  • For kids who struggle with social interactions or feel excluded, recess can be a challenging time.

  • Recess Champions plays a positive role in helping children make connections with peers by encouraging them to participate in the activities.


Limited Play Options

  • Without a variety of engaging play options, students may lose interest, leading to decreased physical activity and potential behaviour issues.

  • Providing children with fun games and leadership skills will encourage children to be more active during recess time.


Engagement & Participation

  • Active participation in games and play during recess can be a struggle, especially for students who are less interested or feel self-conscious about their abilities.

  • Applying diverse leadership approaches and having Recess Champions lead recess activities benefits everyone involved, creating a win-win for your school.

Our Three Pillars



Through dynamic activities and guided experiences, we empower children to take charge, make decisions, and inspire their peers. The skills they develop here are not limited to recess; they become the bedrock of their future success, fostering a generation of trailblazers who excel in every facet of life.


Physical Literacy

Our carefully curated activities go beyond mere play; they instill fundamental movement skills, coordination, and agility. We believe that by mastering these skills early on, children will build competence, confidence and motivation to be active throughout their lives.


Fair Play

We teach young leaders how to create an environment where every child is valued and included. Fair play is the cornerstone of strong relationships, building a foundation for lifelong connections and contributing to a school culture that radiates inclusivity and unity.
