Young Guns & Backyard Fitness are excited to start a Youth Fitness Council! Our Youth Fitness Council will be led by athletes from 4th to 8th grade and will focus on ways to reach out to the community to have fitness opportunities for everyone! Youth Fitness Council will improve leadership skills for participants as well as allow collaboration to make changes in and around our community.
Our goals in our inaugural year are as follows:
Create a youth council with student representatives from grades 4th to 8th grade
Create leadership roles such as President, Vice President, Secretary, etc.
Once council is established, members will create two community fitness events in the fall and spring semester.
Members will participate in a local race to encourage unity as well as to raise funds for a charity selected by the council members.
Young Guns & Backyard Fitness coaches will help guide council members in this inaugural year. We are excited about not only putting fitness as a priority, but also encouraging leadership and community involvement amongst our youth.
