FITNESS AUTHORITY

FITNESS AUTHORITY promotes fitness in all youth through fun, engaging weekly activities and an annual competition with local, regional and national levels. The program features 12 weekly sessions for each of three age groups. Club members play games and try new sports, and their fitness levels are measured with simple tests of endurance, flexibility and strength. The FITNESS AUTHORITY Web site, www.bgca.org/sportsauthority, allows Club members and staff to track fitness levels, rank fitness scores nationally and access other valuable health and fitness resources. The Sports Authority, Inc. underwrote the initial implementation of FITNESS AUTHORITY.
