Triple Play, sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company and the WellPoint Foundation, is a dynamic wellness program currently offered in Boys & Girls Clubs that demonstrates how eating right, keeping fit and forming positive relationships add up to a healthy lifestyle. The goal of the Triple Play program is to improve Club members’ knowledge of healthy habits; increase the number of hours per day they participate in physical activities; and strengthen their ability to interact positively with others and engage in positive relationships.
Triple Play Parents Game Plan
We all have a role in making sure our young people adopt lifelong, healthy lifestyles that include vigorous physical activity and a balanced diet. Because parents play such a critical role in the development of a child’s physical and social well-being, BGCA and Coca-Cola wanted to give them a tool that could be used at home – where healthy habits start, are modeled and reinforced.
The Triple Play Parents Game Plan offers a holistic approach with three key areas of focus:
Mind: Develops a knowledge base for young people to acquire healthy habits, such as making smart food choices, understanding appropriate portion sizes and creating fun and balanced meals.
Body: Promotes young people becoming more physically active through fun daily fitness, including activities to get kids active and moving.
Soul: Strengthens interpersonal skills, positive behavior and good character through social recreation programs and activities.
