The SHINE Program is an after-school sports program offered to eligible youth of the Yuma County. SHINE originally started in the Carver School Nighborhood in 2009. We are now located in various locations throughout the City of Yuma. The program is designed to promote constructive activity during critical and typically unsupervised after-school hours. This program is designed to teach youth the fundamentals of playing sports and facilitate a general understanding of various games, such as softball/baseball, soccer, basketball, football, etc. Additionally, this program will serve to challenge individuals physically and mentally, aid in fostering team spirit, promote healthy competition, condition discipline, develop citizenship, good sportsmanship, and build youth of strong moral character. Finally, this program will focus on physical fitness, exercise, nutrition, and overall health and wellness. The program meets weekly at multiple locations in Yuma, Arizona.
Youth will be required to sign-in and out; wear appropriate attire; engage in character education learning exercises, maintain a program journal, participate in warm-up exercises; learn basic fundamentals of various sport activities; compete in supervised drills and pseudo-game environment; exhibit good citizenship / sportsmanship, reflect on what was learned and/or experienced during the day; and clean-up/groom the field each time after use. At the completion of the day’s events, youth will be provided with a nutritious snack/meal and refreshments.
