Using Programs like “GET OUT & PLAY” to Help Kids Become Active


Do you find it hard to get your tykes out of the house for a hearty physical activity? When was the last time you actually used an commercial playground with your kids? Do you often get out with your kids? I bet the answer is a dubious “yes”. There are quite a few programs that allow children to make significant improvements with regards to their physical and cognitive health.


The “Get Out and Play” system is an organization with Park City School District primary schools, Weilenmann School of Discovery, Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort, Park City Ice Arena, Utah Olympic Park, White Pine Touring, Young Riders, the Mine Bouldering Gym and the Youth Sports Alliance that offers children in first to fifth graders the chance to take an interest in ski, snowboard, crosscountry, free-form, free ride, ski bouncing, bouldering, mountain biking and ice skating.

This program incorporates direction, lift pass, transportation from schools taking to interesting venues. This couldn't happen without the incalculable guardian volunteers who help with everything from offering kids 'some assistance with gearing up' at the schools, to escorting on the transports that vehicle the children to the selected venues, to aiding on the mountain or trail with lessons.


The Get Out and Play program really offers something profitable for pretty much every tyke in this group by getting them off of the couch on Friday evenings, presenting them to another game they have never attempted, or testing their effectively created abilities by using complex playground equipment.

Do your community schools partake in such programs to help eradicate the epidemic of obesity in America?
