Junkmaster Training for Educators

"My name is Vinny and I work at the City of Cypress. I was there when you came and taught us the basics of junkyard sports. I just wanted to thank you because now i have a lot easier time in figuring out what to do with the kids. I can just about play a game with anything."

It's playing and creating and leading games like "Trash Basketball" and" Human Pinball Soccer" and "Puck Puck Hockey."

It's learning how you can help your kids participate and create events for other kids, between grades or schools, with their parents and grandparents and whole community.

It's learning a program of lifetime sports that are fun, safe, inclusive, and often make people laugh. It's a structured, open-ended, celebrating, icebreaking, connection-making celebration of solidarity.

It's a world of fun to discover and rediscover. It's junk, of course. And rules from different sports and games. And environments. Which is already a lot. It's learning how to challenge kids' creativity and compassion, to help them create their own challenges, to body, mind, and heart.
