Youth explore the variety of ways in which health matters through the Health Huddle's three pillars: Sports Performance, Healthy Habits, Mental Health. Grab a punch card at check-in and see how many activities you can complete. Each activity promotes a healthy lifestyle, in mind or body.  This is a great opportunity to test their athletic abilities, try out a new sport, and learn some new coping techniques.

What is the Health Huddle?

The Health Huddle was created in 2019 in order to expand our reach beyond the playing field as we help parents, coaches and patrons tackle the “whole child” in mind, body and health. Today's youth are dealing with a mental health crises, obesity or lack of nutrition, technology distractions, social media, specialization in sport and more. By providing educational content, virtual learning series, coach certification and education we are working to address youth where it matters most. Join us!
