We Help Kids Lead Healthy Lifestyles and Avoid Risky Behaviors.

The Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha’s Healthy Lifestyles program, called Triple Play, is  designed to incorporate healthy living and active learning in every part of the Club Experience.

Triple Play: A Game Plan for the Mind, Body and Soul is the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha’s proven health and wellness program that emphasizes good nutrition, regular physical activity and improving overall well-being. Triple Play makes the connections with youth and teens to promote the importance of physical activity and proper nutrition through the program’s three components: mind, body and soul.

Healthy Habits (Mind) is for ages 6 to 15 and addresses the ways an individual’s health behaviors are influenced by personal beliefs and exposure to positive modeling. In addition to nutrition education, activities focus on helping youth assess, practice, identify, consider, and recognize health behaviors and messages.

Daily Challenges (Body) is an intentional focus on physical literacy: Ability – Increasing capability in basic movement skills and overall fitness; Confidence -the knowledge of the ability to play sports or enjoy other physical activities and Motivation- the intrinsic enthusiasm for physical activity for members to be physically active for life.

Social Recreation (Soul) put an emphasis on social and emotional development, or the social, cognitive, and behavioral skills that youth need to be healthy and productive. There is an explicit focus on emotional regulation, healthy relationships (with self and others), and responsible decision-making.

Other healthy lifestyle programs the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha have are our SMART Girls and Passport to Manhood programs which help our youth members build self-esteem, treat others with respect, and make good choices.

SMART Girls is a small-group health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program designed to meet the developmental needs of girls in three agegroups, spanning ages 8 to 18.

Passport to Manhood represents a targeted effort to engage young boys in discussions and activities that reinforce character, leadership and positive behavior. Each participant receives a “passport” to underscore the notion that he is on a personal journey of maturation and growth.
