This soccer-centered community outreach initiative includes online summer reading and fitness resources to motivate children to read and exercise during their time away from school, which will lead to better academic performance and an increase in playtime year-round.
Active Bodies Active Minds is a 3-month program focusing on a reading and fitness challenge. Children in grades K – 8 can participate (with adult permission) by downloading the provided logs and achieving the set goals each month (June, July and August). There are also prizes to be won!
