Healthy Habits Track & Field Registration 2014

 

Healthy Habits Curriculum

At the beginning of each school year we provide fun, active, and informative activities which allow our participants to learn new ways to live healthy lives.  For the 2012-2013 school year we are focusing on healthy eating, using the USDA Choose My Plate curriculum.  This program teaches the importance of a balanced diet focused on Fruits, Vegetables, Grains, Proteins, and Dairy.  Our members learn about the five food groups and, when complete, will have a music video to help teach others what they learned.

Sports Programming

During the school year the Healthy Habits program offers three seasons of sports; Fall, Winter, and Spring.  Each Super School sites has their own team, which practice during Super School sites after-school hours.  All sports are dedicated towards overall fitness and health through education and self-awareness with an emphasis on fun, safety, and team skills.  The practices focus on learning the fundamentals, team-building and school spirit.  These sports provide fitness activities to youth of all athletic abilities, in a non-competitive style.  During each season the schools have the opportunity to play each other on Saturdays at the Edmonds Boys & Girls Club.

Sports Included:

Fall: Cross Country

Winter: Lacrosse

Spring: Track & Field, Flag Rugby, Middle School Dance

Practice days and times will be determined by the Instructor/Mentor.

Healthy Habits for All!

Thanks to a generous grant from Verdant Health Commission we are able to provide these programs at little to no cost for any child in the Edmonds School District.  If your child attends our Super School Sites (College Place, Lynndale, Edmonds, Sherwood, Westgate Elementary, Beverly, or our Main Club) then you only need to fill out the Healthy Habits Intramural Sport Registration form, which you can pick up at any of our sites.

If they don’t attend those schools, no problem!  If you would like to only participate in the Healthy Habits program we can make that happen at no cost to you, you will need to fill out a Boys & Girls Clubs Membership Form.  Otherwise, all you will need to do is provide transportation to and from the Super School site for the time Healthy Habits run.   Please contact Brandie Lovelace, Healthy Habits Director; Brandie Lovelace, or 425.774.0630.
