Sports, Fitness and Recreation

These Club programs help develop fitness, a positive use of leisure time, skills for reduction of stress, appreciation for the enviroment, and social and interpersonal skills. Club programs include Triple Play: A Game Plan for Mind, Body, and Soul.


Triple Play was developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and strives to improve the overall health of Club members ages 6-18 by increasing their daily physical activity, teaching them good nutrition, and helping them develop healthy relationships.

The Mind component encourages young people to eat smart through the Healthy Habits program, which covers the power of choice, calories, vitamins and minerals, the food pyramid and appropriate portion size. The Body component boosts Clubs’ traditional physical activities to a higher level by providing sports and fitness activities for all youth. Body programs include six Daily Fitness Challenges; teen Sports Clubs focused on leadership development, service and careers in athletics, and Triple Play Games Tournaments (inter-Club sectional tournaments that involve multiple team sports). The Soul component helps build positive relationships and cooperation among young people.

Parents Game Plan
Because parents play such a critical role in the development of a child's physical and social well-being, the Triple Play Parents Game Plan can be used at home, where healthy habits start, are modeled and are reinforced.
