GrowFit physical education is designed to provide schools with a comprehensive and simple way to teach physical literacy to students with varying needs.
It adapts to the students. By providing the right lesson at the right time, our system provides deeply differentiated learning.
It develops skills and closes gaps. GrowFit ensures that concepts are understood before moving on to the next lesson.
It keeps students moving. Our aerobic activity regimen provides immediate health benefits to the heart and brain and reduces the risk of becoming overweight.
It emphasizes sportsmanship and teamwork. Group activities teach students how to interact with their peers and be a part of a team.

It’s flexible. Schools select the days and times for all PE classes.
It’s adaptive. Teachers learn the culture of the school and adapt their teaching style accordingly.
It’s driven by individual needs. Teachers differentiate skill instruction each day by moving up or down the progressions, providing students with practice tasks that allows each of them to experience success.
How It Works
Ten different units teach students the underlying fundamental motor skills.
Each unit is made up of a series of levels that provides a developmentally appropriate sequence to motor skill mastery. As students progress through the levels, they establish a foundation of different motor skills and begin to combine and apply those motor skills in specialized movement contexts.
Each level contains skill instruction, practice tasks and group games.
When a unit begins, the teacher selects a starting level for each of their classes. We provide a suggested pacing guide, but ultimately the teacher selects a level that matches the skill level of the class.
The teacher moves on to the next level when the class has demonstrated competency of the skill.
Each class follows the same structure: warm up game, skill instruction, skill practice, group game(s), class debrief.
