COPA (Creating Opportunities in Physical Activity)- A unique program to get children and families up and moving.  In partnership with local schools, we help offer after school and evening programs that engage all students in age appropriate physical activities.


During the School Day- COPA is a peer-coach training program for elementary school teachers.  A physical education Specialist from Providence Little Company of Mary is paired with a teacher for two year to bring California standard-based physical education to their students.


After school – COPA uses the C.A.R.E. (Challenge, Assess, Respect, and Exercise) curriculum to reinforce physical activity instruction the children learn during the school day.   This eight week curriculum combines physical, social, and emotional aspects of the health taught through indoor and outdoor activities.
