What is a content pack?

Sport for Life has created content packs for organizations to use as part of their PLAYBuilder license. Content packs provide one place for activities, lesson plans, progressions, and collections that are related (i.e. the Active Start content pack contains content for children 0-6 years old). These packs were developed using the Long-Term Development framework, with an emphasis on children, youth, and adults needing to do the right things at the right time to develop in their sport or physical activity. Once your organization purchases a PLAYBuilder license, the content packs will be found on the Dashboard under “Browse Your Packs”. Each organization can subscribe to and / or create their own content packs based on their own needs and do not have to purchase Sport for Life content if they want to produce their own. Thus, access to these packs depends on which PLAYBuilder package your organization purchases.
