Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1) Upon approval from Rugby Alabama, implement PE curriculum into the Primary and Middle schools of Mobile and Baldwin Counties
(UPDATE: Approval Granted for the Rookie Rugby Curriculum by the State of Alabama and Rugby Alabama Q4 2011. We are no exploring opportunities to educate the educators in Mobile and Baldwin Counties)

2) Target after-school, after-care, and community sports programs (B&G, YMCA) with Rookie Rugby (3 yr)
(Update: Boys and Girls Club and YMCA branches have been introduced to Rookie Rugby through non-contact/flag clinics over the past 3 years. We are working to strengthen our relationship with these organizations to continue promoting rugby in at-risk or under-funding communities)

3) Explore opportunities for contact versions of Rookie Rugby 7’s, 10’s, and 15’s at the High School level with goal of starting 5 teams globally that are self-sufficient (5 yr)
(UPDATE: We are making progress in establishing ties with local schools to build a competition structure and sustainable programming in the public and parochial markets. If you are interested in bringing Rookie Rugby to your school, please contact us. Currently, we have over 50 physical educators in Southwest Alabama trained to facilitate the Rookie Rugby curriculum, with the curriculum run at least once in over a dozen schools. Help make this sustainable by asking your child's physical educator about rugby in the school.

Implement Rookie Rugby P.E. Curriculum in over 50% of the Elementary and Middle schools within 5 years, targeting at-risk or predominant minority demographics to improve wellness, fitness, and education to overall reduce likelihood of child and adolescent obesity. Provide after-care or after-school programs with a new and low-cost program to engage children in activity. Develop and implement a pathway for competitive rugby at all levels through grassroots campaigning and targeted programming

Current capabilities allow for continued and on-going facilitation of the P.E. curriculum for two locations (schools or after-care) per month. After-school and competitive competition is underway with reach well within target range of 20-25 participants per program. Growth projections indicate continued uptick in program facilitation in rural communities with sustainable growth (up to100 participants per program) in the pathway development chain.

Performance based on KPI's:
1) 60+ educators trained
2) 12 schools have completed the curriculum cycle within the last 24 months
3) 100% actual participation in competitive programs against participation forecast
