An important piece of our After School Program, Triple Play is our Healthy-living iniative. A national Boys & Girls Clubs curriculum, deveopled to ensure that all students nurture their minds, bodies and souls. Triple Play is designed to empower Club members to make healthier choices for the rest of their lives. Nutritional meals and snacks are served daily. Students learn about healthy preparation of food and taste new fresh vegetables grown inour BGC Garden and participate in physical activities each week. We are giving our young people the tools to make healthier choices, increase their physical fitness, and to encourage their friends and family to do the same. The goal is to improve overall health of the community.
