Sock Soccer Sign-Up

We had a different kind of kick-off event at our school this year. Students voted to make our kick-off both informative and fun. So we invited students to come in their craziest socks, where we voted for the best ones. Prizes were awarded and a raffle was held for all who attended. After an informative PowerPoint presentation was shown about the Fuel Up To Play 60 Program, students were invited to the gym to participate in a slippery and fun game of soccer in their socks. Teams were picked at random, and fun was had by all. In the end we served recovery snacks of chocolate milk, bananas, cheese and crackers. Since our event, we have had many more students join our program and help by promoting the ideas of healthy eating and being more active.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We worked together to bring ideas of all the students on promoting both healthy eating and being active into our kick-off.
