HIGH FIVE®

Because every child in BC deserves a HIGH FIVE®!

The standard in BC for those who manage and/or lead sport and recreation programs for children aged 6-12 years. Consisting of training, resources and tools, the HIGH FIVE® system is based on years of research and consultation with experts, and is the only quality assurance system in North American designed to specifically support the safety, well-being and healthy development of children in sport and recreation settings.
 
The HIGH FIVE® mission is to ensure that recreation and sport practitioners develop a high level of knowledge and expertise in child development and provide them with the tools for enhancing and maintaining a high level of program.

The HIGH FIVE® Approaches

There isn’t one way to join HIGH FIVE®. It’s important to participate in HIGH FIVE® in a way that suits the needs of your organization. We have broken down the system into three different components. 

Listed below you will find three different approaches to HIGH FIVE®, with a brief description of the approach and a link to more information tailored specifically to recreation organizations, sport organizations, academic institutions and individuals. Browse through the LEARN, JOIN, and TEACH approaches to see which approach is right for you.

 


Attend and Host Workshops

In its most simple application, sport and recreation organizations, academic institutions and individuals can use HIGH FIVE® to access information, use research-based materials and attend training workshops in an effort to gain and build personal expertise and increase the quality of their programs.

If your organization is looking to begin instilling quality assurance measures pertaining to healthy child development within your organization, hosting and attending any or all of the HIGH FIVE® workshops is a great place to start. Please click on the link below for more information about the HIGH FIVE® training workshops and how your organization can get involved.


Becoming a Registered Organization

Organizations wishing to take their commitment one level further beyond simply using the HIGH FIVE® training and resources should consider becoming a HIGH FIVE® Registered Organization. Registering entitles you to discounted costs, access to the HIGH FIVE® database, which includes tracking features, use of the HIGH FIVE logo, a certificate for display in your facility and consultation and support from HIGH FIVE® BC

Working towards Accreditation

Once you are a Registered Organization, you have the option of furthering your commitment to healthy child development and quality assurance measures by working towards Accreditation!

HIGH FIVE® Accreditation establishes the benchmark for excellence in children’s recreation and sport programming. It distinguishes those organizations that have reached the highest recognized levels of quality and safety. Please follow the link below for more information about Registration and Accreditation.


Becoming a HIGH FIVE Trainer

Another option for those looking to get more involved in HIGH FIVE® is to become a HIGH FIVE® Trainer. Becoming a Trainer not only adds to your own skillset but also enables you to teach the HIGH FIVE® workshops to your own or other organizations in BC. Having a HIGH FIVE® Trainer within an organization can cut down workshop costs and make scheduling more convenient. Individuals who become Trainers can also earn an income by facilitating and delivering workshops. Please click on the link below to learn more about Becoming a Trainer.
