Junkmaster Training for Educators
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.
Junkmaster Training is founded in the same principles that led to the success of the New Games Training, principles developed by Bernie DeKoven, and found everywhere in his DeepFUN.com website, and especially January 7-9, 2005, at the Esalen Institute
Fees are set on a sliding scale, depending on the budget, the duration and scale of the event and the number of people involved in the training.
Especially for teachers and community workers in schools and recreation centers - your completely downloadable, almost 2-megabyte's worth of plans for holding your own Junkyard Golf Course and Community Building with Potluck Event
