It is no secret that being active is an important factor in any one’s lives, but especially important for kids as well. It can be so much harder during the winter months and school year to make sure your kids are getting adequate exercise. I know when I was growing up as Air Force dependent that we had a Boys & Girls Clubs of America on the base to go to. Year round we had access to a gym, skating, and sports leagues helping us to stay active.
Tips To Keeping Kids Active In the Winter:
- Mall walking it’s fun to window shop and it doesn’t feel like exercise
- Park further from the buildings little steps add up
- Indoor obstacle course
- Roller skating rinks
- Ice skating rinks
- Find fall/winter sports leagues for the kids to join in on

Now, what is Triple Play program? This is something I love that Boys & Girls Clubs are doing for the youth. They have partnered with Anthem Foundation and The Coca-Cola Company to offer the Triple Play program to kids and teens in its Clubs across the country. The Triple Play program focuses on three components of health and wellness – mind, body, and soul.
