The goals of the Triple Play program are to improve youth 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. The program components include Healthy Habits Nutrition Curriculum, daily challenges, sports clubs, Triple Play games, and social recreation. Triple Play focuses on three elements: body, mind, and soul. The “Body” component promotes physical activity through fun daily fitness routines. Curricula include Daily Challenges, Daily Challenges, Too and Triple Play Leadership Clubs. The “Mind” component helps young people acquire healthy habits, such as making smart food choices, understanding appropriate portion sizes and creating fun, balanced meals. Under ‘Belonging & Membership’, the “Soul” piece 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 all situations.
