Kids Fit – A fun class designed to get kids excited about being active. We focus on learning, success and fun. They run, jump, throw, catch balls, enjoy jumping jacks, pushups, and learn about fitness and health. But most of all they have fun learning and exercising. Games and relays are combined with an introduction to basic exercise techniques. We will help all participants try new activities such as obstacle courses, parachute games, volleyball, and hip-hop dancing. Adult family members are also encouraged to join in on certain games.
Safe Sitter – Our organization provides this vital program to help provide safe and secure care for young children today while empowering young adolescents to become tomorrow’s citizens and parents. The safe sitter will learn how a child’s age affects how to care for them, how to prevent problem behavior and how to rescue a choking infant or child.
Sports Fit – Sports Fit will help your child gain fitness and sports skills while improving confidence and self-esteem. A great overview of various sports and fundamental skills will be learned. Teamwork and good sportsmanship are stressed. Specific sport activities will vary by each class. This session is designed to ignite a passion for sports. Children will improve their kicking, running, jumping, and throwing skills. Introduction to various sports will include T-ball, hockey, basketball, soccer, tug-of-war, Frisbees and relay races. Individual instruction, organized drills and fun games will be included.
HOFNOD – Hooked on Fishing Not on Drugs. This program uses fishing, tackle, knot tying, casting, use of bait, and safety to address: Positive alternatives to drug use, motivation, communication, building self-esteem, responsibility, positive role models, the ability to overcome peer pressure, good problem-solving strategies, decision-making skills, and improved family interaction. Just because a youngster fishes does not guarantee that he or she will remain drug-free. However, children who possess the aforementioned life skills and can communicate with their parents are less likely to turn to drugs.

The President's Challenge is a series of programs designed to help improve anyone's activity level. Joining a group is a great way to make staying active easy and fun!
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Anyone--all ages can sign-up! Click here for more information.
LOTS OF ACTIVITIES HELP YOU EARN POINTS!
In addition to traditional sport activities like basketball, football, jogging, or aerobics, there is a LONG list of other activities that earn you points toward your goal! How about lawn mowing/gardening, trampoline, darts, or even Wii Sports?! Each activity has a predetermined point allowance and earns you points based on length, and sometimes on degree, of activity.
Click Here to see the full list of activities to get you and your family active!
Why is staying active important?
Heart health - Regular physical activity can lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels and can reduce the risk of illnesses such as Type II diabetes or heart disease.
Bone support - Exercise is a good way to build strong, healthy bones and can help slow the bone loss associated with getting older.
Sense of well-being - Being in good shape can give you more energy, reduce anxiety and depression, improve self-esteem, and help you better manage stress.
Social life - Staying active can be a great way to have fun, make new friends, and spend quality time with family.
Physical appearance - You look better when you're in shape. Staying active helps you tone muscles and maintain a healthy weight - and can even improve your posture.
We hope your new year is off to a great start! Now that cooler temperatures are settling in, it's a great time to begin using your outdoor classroom! Below are some resources and quick tips to help you get your family outdoors...
Plant a cool weather garden! September is the perfect time to plant seeds or seedlings in your raised bed gardens to grow winter veggies such as broccoli, cabbage, peas, carrots, spinach and winter squash.
For helpful tips and activities related to a fall or winter garden, take a look at these FREE resources:
Also, check out Mel Bartholomew's Square Foot Gardening book...it includes information about how to transform your 4 foot by 6 foot raised bed garden into 24 one square foot gardens for your children to grow their very own veggies. His how-to book even includes how many seeds of each type of vegetable to include in each "square foot garden".
September and October is also a GREAT time to study migration as thousands upon thousands of birds and butterflies travel to and thru Alabama on their way to warmer climates! To track the migration with your students, visit Journey North's website. Your students can even send their own "monarch butterflies" on a Symbolic Migration to Mexico.
Be sure to visit our Alabama Outdoor Classroom Program webpage on AWF's website in the upcoming weeks as we will be adding new free outdoor activity sheets to use with your children, and much, much more!
Thank you for all you do to get our children outdoors!
