Physical activity is critical to our children’s health and well-being. Research has repeatedly shown that children who practice good health maintain higher attendance rates, are better able to learn, exhibit higher self-esteem, and have a lower risk of developing chronic diseases. It has also been found that when children and teenagers adopt healthy habits, they’re more likely to carry those habits into adulthood. The VARS/TY INITIATIVE will challenge youth to make physical activity a part of their lifestyle. We strive to enhance the physical, emotional and social well-being of youth through health, fitness and movement.
There is no doubt that young people need to have physical activity as a part of their lives. VARS/TY provides a space for youth to come together to experience fitness and movement in a positive and fun way. The program is for any youth who wants to become stronger, faster, more agile and better balanced whether to excel in Athletics or just in Life.
