Participants take part in obstacle courses, running, agility training, interactive football, and conditioning programs. Activities are competitive and introduce teambuilding concepts – utilizing Character Counts evidence-based model. Participants also have the opportunity to join in additional physical fitness activities (a different activity every Friday) such as basketball, softball, rock climbing, soccer, volleyball, and weight-training. These activities have an impact on academic and social development. Our objective is to improve physical fitness, generate an active lifestyle, and introduce participants to healthy eating. We huddle together and tackle health issues ranging from Diabetes, STDs, HIV-AIDS awareness, Health Disparities, Drugs and Alcohol – to Obesity, Self-Worth and Stress. Youth also interact with leaders of the Fusion Program.
