Have a Ball

What is "USA of Indiana Have a Ball"?

Community Through Youth Sport Foundation and United Soccer Alliance of Indiana provides a low cost “USAI Have A Ball” program for P.E. classes or during a school's Field Day event.  USA of Indiana’s “Have A Ball” is a mobile “Introduction to Soccer” physical education class for children, K-8th.  Have A Ball’s fine and gross motor development fitness class is taught by experienced youth soccer instructors.  As “Have A Ball” takes place during your regularly scheduled P.E. class, the P.E. instructor is also in attendance.  “Have A Ball” supplies all equipment and balls.  Please contact USA of Indiana to determine if your school is eligible.  “Have A Ball” provides school children opportunities to grow, learn, and have fun through sport with the mission to “Develop Fine Young Men and Women, One Child at a Time.” 

“USAI Have A Ball” Rationale:

“Have A Ball” compliments the school’s P.E. educational focus on wellness while developing the physical, mental, and social well being of each student.  Instruction and participation in a variety of experiences enables the student to assess his/her own capabilities and limitations as well as stimulate self-discipline, develop and improve motor skills and physical fitness levels.  Character building traits such as sportsmanship, leadership, cooperation, sociability, creativity, and fair play are emphasized.  “Have A Ball” provides a carefully planned experience that results in knowledge about the value of physical activity, the components of physical fitness, essential motor skills, and the social qualities that make for effective citizenship.
