The President’s Challenge is for kids of all abilities. With a little consideration and flexibility, any student can participate in any of our challenges.
We encourage our instructors to make accommodations for all students to participate in our challenges. It's a great way to get them started and stay motivated for a lifeltime of physical activity.
The Presidential Youth Fitness Program has adopted the FITNESSGRAM®, a comprehensive fitness assessment. What does this mean for you? You can now administer this assessment and access instructions and program standards for FREE! PYFP has worked to ensure that you have the resources needed to be successful in promoting lifelong physical activity. Tools are available for administering to and scoring students with disabilities.

Instructors are encouraged to use their professional judgment to allow students with disabilities to earn President's Challenge awards, even if they do not reach our standards. Here are some guidelines to follow:
If you have questions about these guidelines, please contact us. We want all students to be active!
President’s Challenge awards and sportswear are great rewards for hard work.
