By filling out this quick request form, we will learn a little more about YOU and what you are looking for in a BOKS training. We may not always be able to provide a virtual or in-person training, but we will be able to point you to a previously recorded training and a BOKS team member to support you and your BOKS program.
BOKS Training Options
In this workshop we will introduce you to the BOKS program and all of the resources that are available to you within it. We will walk you through the process from signing up, to how to get the most out of your Trainer Hub. You will learn new Bursts (active movement breaks), ways to incorporate mindfulness into your programs, how to implement a running program that keeps kids interested (no, it is not just about running laps), ideas for movement at recess, leadership opportunities with BOKS, AND our BOKS bootcamp program (for kids in grade 7-12). We will share real life examples of unique and creative ways your peers have put BOKS into action within their communities. Leave this session with a back pocket full of new ideas and learn how to access all our resources that takes the prep out of the equation for you!
This is one of the most popular BOKS resource offerings- by far! Bursts are 1-10 minute activities intended to offer movement breaks to kids throughout the day. They are transferable to almost any environment, easily modifiable, and super fun. With over 200 activities to choose from, you’ll be able to find endless ways to get kids 6-14 moving, at any time of the day. Bursts are excellent for transitions during classes or for breaks and are super useful in helping kids get their wiggles out. This session will introduce BOKS Bursts and how to make the most out of this resource in your environment.
Dive into the free BOKS (Build Our Kids’ Success) Junior Leadership program, which provides school communities with everything needed to kickstart a student-led BOKS Burst (short movement break) program. This program is supported by instructional videos, a step-by-step training guide and additional Burst resources specifically for student leaders. This session will provide teachers with valuable strategies to provide their students with key leadership opportunities and empower them to make lasting change. We’ll review how to get a program started, how to get Junior Leaders excited to lead Bursts, and showcase some creative ways different Junior Leadership groups have implemented the program!
