TODAY’S CHILDREN MAY BE THE FIRST GENERATION TO HAVE A SHORTER LIFE EXPECTANCY THAN THEIR PARENTS.
LET’S CHANGE THAT.
Active kids do better. Better academic performance. Better behavior. Better health. Better lives.
Physical activity has multiple, far reaching effects that last into adulthood. For example, the physical training in a typical soccer practice helps reduce the risk for depression while the strength training in that same practice will increase long-term skeletal health. A commitment to physical activity is an investment in the future.
The first 10 years of life are game changing
The brain goes through a crucial development period in the first 10 years of life. This period has a long-lasting influence on a kid’s future interests. Enrolling kids in physical activity programs that are fun, inclusive, educational, and appropriate for their age and skill level, helps ensure early positive exposure to physical activity and increases their likelihood of staying active throughout their life.
”Physical inactivity has reached epidemic proportions and is growing at an alarming rate. It poses a major threat to the health, happiness, and prosperity of individuals, communities, and nations.”
Everyone has a role in the solution
Governments, cities, corporations, communities, schools, and individuals are coming together to inspire kids to move more. In order to create a more active generation, opportunities to be active need to be available everywhere. It takes schools that integrate physical education into the curriculum, cities that provide an environment for movement, passionate individuals with the desire to mentor, and role models who create change.
