Recess Guardians’ mission is to motivate children to bring positive attitudes to the playground, while teaching their peers how to play in an energetic, fun and constructive way.
Turnout was inconsistent
Sometimes wouldn’t play the games if they didn’t like them off the start
Inexperienced adult volunteers
Not giving every student a chance to participate
Inconsistent turnout, having to chase students after school
Other activities can get in the way
Disruption from children who don’t want to play the games
Not having physical activity after school, cuts down on time they are active
Students who don’t want to play may distract others
