Paddles For Change

Purpose

Paddles for Change is a youth program that engages youth in the sport of RoTenGo while helping them identify their physical and mental strengths. Paddles for Change was created to provide at-risk youth with an opportunity to engage in activities that give them the opportunity to overcome barriers to success while developing critical thinking skills and conflict resolution techniques.

Participants receive incentives for participation as well as recognition and prizes. Families of RoTenGo participants are always welcome to participate in the program and take advantage of the opportunity to interact with their children.

Goal

The goals of Paddles for Change are to:

  • Provide youth a safe and supervised place to play RoTenGo
  • Increase the participation of youth in physical activity
  • Provide youth with opportunities to practice good sportsmanship and develop leadership skills
  • Provide youth opportunities to establish and develop critical thinking skills and conflict resolution techniques

Structure

  • TOURNAMENTS – Participate in competitive exhibitions (for both aspiring and experienced  players)
