Triple Play Tour


This summer Boys & Girls Clubs of America is taking Triple Play, its signature health and wellness program on the road for the first ever mobile tour. The Triple Play One Million Minutes in Motion Tour will travel across the country this summer to inspire kids to get active.

The mobile tour’s goal is to get kids excited about getting active and moving this summer by clocking one million minutes of kids in motion at our Clubs around the country.

With almost 3 out of 10 kids today either obese or overweight, it’s critically important for youth to participate in moderate to vigorous physical activity for at least 60 minutes per day. The Triple Play Mobile Tour not only will generate enthusiasm for being active but will also illustrate for our kids fun and easy ways to stay moving all year long.


It’s important to keep active and moving, whether you are at school, a Boys & Girls Club or at home. Here are some ways that you can activate your own mobile tour and get your minutes in motion this summer:

Sports & active play:

  • Jumping rope
  • Hopping, skipping
  • Sports like running, soccer, field hockey, basketball, swimming or tennis
  • Vigorous dancing
  • Skateboarding
  • Rollerblading
  • Bicycle riding
Muscle-strengthening:

  • Games such as tug-of-war
  • Modified push-ups (with knees on the floor)
  • Hiking
Resistance exercises using body weight or resistance bands

  • Sit-ups (curl-up or crunches)
  • Swinging on playground equipment/bars
  • Games such as tug-of-war
  • Push-ups and pull-ups


Some ideas to keep you going!

Kids need 60 minutes or more of physical activity daily on most days. It is important to encourage young people to participate in enjoyable, age-appropriate physical activities. Think about physical activities in three broad categories:

  • Aerobic activities increase breathing and heart rates. These activities help strengthen the heart and lungs. Most of the activity should be either moderate or vigorous-intensity. At this level of intensity, children’s breathing should be well above normal.
  • Muscle-strengthening activities help you build muscle mass and get stronger. Young people can engage in muscle-strengthening activities in free or structured play.
  • Bone-strengthening activities help promote bone growth and strength. These activities involve muscles pushing against the bone.
There are so many ways to stay active and in motion, to get 60 minutes of activity each day. Keep in mind, that it may take a few tries to find out which activities you enjoy best. The important thing is to continue to live an active, healthy lifestyle that involves minutes in motion each day.
