Abstract: Focused on introducing the SPARK program, a national physical education movement that is extensively and lastingly developed in the United States, producing remarkable results, and producing profound influence on students and the society. Characteristics of this program are novel teaching contents, emphasis on lifetime sport, free selection of sports events by students, and implementation of comprehensive scholastic physical education plans. The SPARK program has a positive reference function for the development of “Sunny Sport” in schools in China. Main issues to be coordinated and tackled for “Sunny Sport” include the followings: relations between early and continuous sports capacity as well as between overall and individual sports capacity; combination of traditional teaching contents with modern teaching contents; harmonious promotion of physical education classes and extracur-ricular sports activities; mutual supplementation and promotion between theoretical physical education classes and practice classes; harmonious unification of sports competitiveness and fitness.
