Westwood Football Challenge
We enlisted the help of our PE teachers so the kids could do this during gym class. Our Challenge was to see how close you could throw your football to the hoops we used as targets on the floor. Each kid had 4 chances to throw the football. Our Ambassadors gave some reminder demonstrations and helped those who had never thrown a football before. It was great to see the kids encouraging and cheering for each other!! We had a lot of fun!! Prizes were given out to the closest to the target.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The challenge this time was getting the PE teachers involved in our plan. Once our FUTP 60 kids explained how we wanted the play to go, they were both on board. We were glad they were willing to change their plans on the two days we held the challenge.
