This Sports Sampler program is ran by Ohio University Students who are in the Coaching Education program who are also working on creating a Virtual Coaching Education for Coaches, Parents, and Community thru an outreach grant. The heart of this project aims to improve the youth sporting experience for children and adolescents by providing coaching education resources to stakeholders leading and supporting youth sport initiatives.

This program will offer a new sport each week for the participants to learn and navigate. The sports that will be covered are: Soccer/Futsal, Basketball, Volleyball, (Flag) Football, and T-Ball. All classes will take place at the Athens Community Center. Depending on weather, some classes may take place outdoors while others will be indoors. Appropriate dress is required.

**It's important to know that those who participate in this program will be recorded for training purposes and their images will be used for coaching education. A photo/video release form must be signed prior to the first lesson or the participant will not be able to participate.
