Asphalt Green will assign a REP Coach to partner schools to take a lead role alongside recess staff to maximize safe, active play at recess. Each coach is supported by a full-time program coordinator and a senior REP coach who will make regular visits to your school to ensure program quality. This means a substitute can be provided if the regular coach is sick or unavailable. Together, this team will help schools:  

  • Create and improve routines to transition smoothly to and from recess  
  • Identify and activate useable indoor and outdoor recess spaces   
  • Teach students organized games and encourage them to take the lead in running them  
  • Encourage all students to be active no matter their age or ability  
  • Promote conflict resolution skills through play  






REP begins in mid-September and follows the school calendar through mid-June (approximately 35 weeks). The REP coach will be at partner schools Monday through Thursday for the entire lunch and recess block. Fridays are flex days. REP coaches will be at a given partner school for about half of all Fridays throughout the year. The other half will be used to provide essential training and support to our coaches. Our team will work with partner schools to make a plan for the days the coach is not there.  

Asphalt Green will supply partner schools with the equipment necessary to play all 150+ of our games!    

The structure allows the school to ensure that children are safe. Students are definitely more responsive to rules, and we are excited about the activities.
