BOKS is a FREE physical activity program designed to get kids active and establish a lifelong commitment to health and fitness

Learn More

Numerous studies have demonstrated that increased physical activity and a healthy diet can prevent or delay chronic disease. The BOKS program has helped our students work towards  both goals . They are not only being physically active in the 35 minute BOKS session but the BOKS Bits nutritional component at the end of each session helps to increase their awareness of the importance of a healthy diet and helps them to make smart and informed decisions regarding their own personal diet.
