The Trail Blazers PE Program presented by Nike provides equipment, activity guides and hands-on training to physical education teachers in local schools that have limited funding for their PE programs. Our goal is for youth to have positive early experiences with basketball in school.
2019-20 Program Elements
Each fall, 40 educators from schools in Oregon and SW Washington who have financially limitations for their PE programs are invited to participate in the program.
Selected schools are invited to our annual training with Coaching Peace to better understand how to coach kids in basketball.
After the training, teachers receive a Nike PE Kit (balls, pennies & cones) as well as a digital Activity Guide for referencing basketball instruction.
Each school will be offered a FREE PE Takeover for their program*
Takeovers will be scheduled with an agreed-upon date and organized by the Trail Blazers Youth Basketball team.
The 19-20 Program has begun! If you're interested in being considered to participate in the program 20-21, please sign up below.
