PROGRAM COMPONENTS

Warm-Up: Every PLAY session begins with stretching exercises that gradually increase children’s heart rates. Games and other warm-up activities also teach the importance of basic fitness, health concepts, and character development.

 

Flexibility: PLAY exercises help children maintain or increase their range of motion of all joints and to stretch muscles.

 

Cardiovascular: Games and exercises elevate the heart rate so children can achieve cardio-respiratory conditioning.

Muscular Strength & Endurance: Devoted coaches design specific activities to strengthen and increase muscle endurance.

 

Skill Development: Exercises focus on fine and gross motor skills as well as sport-specific skills.

 

Cool-Down: PLAY time ends with activities that slow down children’s heart rates and re-stretch the muscles.
