Get the Boys Moving
We have been trying to get kids more active in our school. There are several clubs for girls to connect with, but not that much for the boys. To address this need we started an afterschool boys fitness program. We had have had some great success. The kids have not only been getting stronger and faster, but they have also become more involved at school and their grades are improving. They even seem to have more of a hometown pride because of the connections that they have made.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The kids are connecting more with each other and their school while getting healthier. Their grades have even gone up.
