In a tight economic climate both physical education programs and community park and recreation departments are challenged to develop creative ways to stretch limited resources. While both are involved in individual lifetime physical activities, opportunities for creating partnerships to promote such activities are often overlooked. This session will provide examples of how both can re-create partnerships that allow each to more effectively achieve their common goals.
