Kids and teens today have a lot of things on their minds—but all too often physical activity and eating healthy are not among them. That’s where you come in. You’re in the classroom, in the gym, and on the playground, teaching young people some fitness and nutrition fundamentals that (we hope!) they’ll take into adulthood.
The new Presidential Youth Fitness Program assesses kids' fitness as it relates to their health—instead of athletic performance. You can implement the Presidential Youth Fitness Program now!
We at the President’s Challenge want to be your partner in this good work. Here’s how we help you:
We classify our educators into two types:
Our instructors are often P.E. or gym teachers—but not always. In fact, you don’t have to be a certified teacher to administer any of our challenges. Any adult can do it as long as it’s done in accordance with our guidelines, using discretion, and making appropriate modifications for students with disabilities.
Now, get out there and get our kids active!
President’s Challenge awards and sportswear are great rewards for hard work.
