Welcome to Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s (BGCA) Third Annual Triple Play Fit Family Challenge. We are so excited to have hundreds of Club families across the country participating in fitness and nutrition activities for a chance to advance and win top prizes at the national competition.
The Triple Play Fit Family Challenge is designed to help families from across the country incorporate principles from Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s (BGCA) signature health and wellness program, Triple Play, into their lives over a period of three to six weeks.
In line with the three components of the Triple Play program, families that participate in the Challenge will learn and practice healthy eating habits (MIND), be more physically active (BODY) and spend quality time with each other (SOUL). Challenge activities include earning the Presidential Active Lifestyles Award (PALA) from the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition; participating in fitness and social activities as a family; and trying new fruits and vegetables and eating smaller portions.
The top five families will be selected to advance to the Triple Play Fit Family Challenge Finale on January 12, 2013 in California, including an all-expense paid trip for the entire family.
