  • Select the best days and times for the activities, and arrange a schedule for who will set up and supervise them.
  • Publicize the benefits of using the activities. Use the information and ideas in Tools and Resources below to help you get your message out.
  • Get teachers to volunteer to take their classes through the activities, if they are available during the day, as part of a special physical activity break.
  • Consider hosting a kickoff event using the Game On! The Ultimate Wellness Challenge Course to help students (and adults) learn about the importance of healthy eating and physical activity— and to get students exposed to the idea of going station to station.

After-School Fun Fitness Activities

The Charlotte Elementary School sponsored a Family Night Gym and Swim at the Charlotte Aquatic Center. We gave out many prizes: "got milk?" footballs, Fuel Up to Play 60 gym bags and T-Shirts. Everyone had a great time and got in 60 minutes of exercise!

This play has worked great for us. I am really encouraged by the teachers and community members willing to get involved. We have introduced, bootcamp, kickboxing, yoga and Zumba to our students. I think next year we are going to continue this throughout the year!!

We just initiated our after-school program. Our first meeting, we had 43 students show up. Student got a lesson on the nutrients, then they had fun participating in a variety of fitness activities using a ball. Students had a "ball" and encouraged more students to sign up to attend our Fun Fitness Camp.

We organized additional physical activity opportunities offered through our existing after-school activity program: football team (involved taking city bus to practice with and play on another school's existing team), the first ever dance team, basketball teams for girls and boys (involved organizing scrimmages with area private schools and park teams), circus arts class and two separate biking field trips.
