Examples of programs in our Clubs:
Triple Play: A Game Plan for Mind, Body and Soul
Triple Play, BGCA's comprehensive health and wellness initiative, strives to improve the overall health of members, ages 6-18, by increasing their daily physical activity, teaching them good nutrition and helping them develop healthy relationships.
The "Mind" component helps young people acquire healthy habits, such as making smart food choices, understanding appropriate portion sizes and creating fun, balanced meals.
The "Body" component promotes physical activity through fun daily fitness routines.  Club youth of every age and fitness level have the chance to participate in a variety of games.
The "Soul" component encompasses social recreation activities that are critical to positive youth development.  By participating in a comprehensive social recreation program, Club youth are able to develop and sustain positive relationships with others, acquire a healthy self-concept and a strong belief in their self-worth, and cope well with both positive and adverse situations.
