An Athletic Training Program
Sports Performance Training To Excel As An Athlete
Organized sports have proven to provide a positive outlet for teens. They build friendships, find mentors through coaches, maintain academic achievement and provide activities that keep teens out of trouble. The vision of PROJECT ATHLETES is to keep teens engaged with the benefits of organized sports on the off-season and throughout the entire year.
PROJECT ATHLETES fosters life's positive outlooks in ways that help guide teens on their life journey. Focused on physical conditioning, this structured mentoring program recognizes and promotes academic standing, goal setting and balance in their lives.

A Game Plan for Mind, Body and Soul
Triple Play, BGCA’s first comprehensive health and wellness program, developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, strives to improve the overall health of Club members ages 6-18 by increasing their daily physical activity, teaching them good nutrition and helping them develop healthy relationships.
The Mind component encourages young people to eat smart through the Healthy Habits program, which covers the power of choice, calories, vitamins and minerals, the food pyramid and appropriate portion size. The Body component boosts Clubs’ traditional physical activities to a higher level by providing sports and fitness activities for all youth. Body programs include six Daily Fitness Challenges; teen Sports Clubs focused on leadership development, service and careers in athletics; and Triple Play Games Tournaments, inter-Club sectional tournaments that involve multiple team sports. The Soul component helps build positive relationships and cooperation among young people.
