Triple Play Tour

For the second summer in a row, Boys & Girls Clubs of America is taking Triple Play, its signature health and wellness program on the road. The Triple Play Mobile Tour will travel across the country with the goal of inspiring kids to get active and eat right this summer.

Nearly 3 out of 10 kids today are either obese or overweight. It’s critical for youth to participate in moderate to vigorous physical activity for at least 60 minutes per day. The Triple Play Mobile Tour will not only generate enthusiasm for being active but will also demonstrate 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

  • 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.
