PHITAmerica Go Grants helping thousands of kids get active

PHIT AMERICA GO! GRANTS – A SUPERSTAR-WINNING PROGRAM

We have now helped 150,000 kids get active and moving in our school-based physical activity programs. To date, PHIT America with the help of its sponsors, has invested over $1,000,000 in the PHIT America GO! Grants program. Our success is in many ways attributed to our great partners, KIDS in the GAME who have implemented our GO! Grants.

“We are proud to get more kids active and playing sports while fighting the ‘Inactivity Pandemic’,” says Jim Baugh, Founder of PHIT America. “We have beaten our projections and our average cost per child is less than $15. That is an incredibly small price to pay for the transformative power exercise has on these kids’ academic, physical and emotional health. The PHIT America GO! Grants are changing lives. We are doubling kids physical activity levels…adding 85 minutes of physical activity per week. Our cost per child is less than $15 per child. We will put this program and our cost per child up against ANY program in the USA.”

SPONSORS STEP UP – GO THE EXTRA MILE

A few key sponsors have driven up the results for the PHIT America GO! Grants. ASICS became the first Platinum Sponsor by pledging an additional $50,000 to PHIT America through a special consumer-centric Global Running Day fundraising initiative in late May/early June of this year. The majority of these funds will impact GO! Grants in California, Hawaii, and Texas in the 2017/18 school year. ASICS is planning other promotional events later this year which will benefit PHIT America and get more kids ‘off the couch’ and active through the GO! Grants program.

Two other major sponsors have gone the extra mile. Recently in Chicago, Life Fitness provided PHIT America GO! Grants to 11 elementary schools in the greater Chicago area. Then, with the help of its PR firm, Edelman & Associates, Life Fitness told the story throughout the greater Chicago area. See the great promotional video which Life Fitness produced HERE. Earlier this year, Technogym with the help of its PR firm, NikeComm, supported schools in northern New Jersey and then exposed their efforts and results to the general media in the greater New York City area.

JOIN OUR ‘MOVEMENT’ – WE MUST WORK TOGETHER TO FIGHT THE INACTIVITY TRENDS

There is no question the ‘Inactivity Pandemic’ is getting worse. Kids are getting increasingly inactive and addicted to electric devices. Our programs – GO! Grants, educational tools, The PHIT Act and a new event in 2018, PHIT America Month – fight the negative trends of the sports & fitness industry.

Please don’t think the ‘Inactivity Pandemic’ will just turn around. We need everyone to be proactive and join our ‘Movement’. If you want to help us get America more Active, FIt & Healthy, please contact Jim@PHITAmerica.org. We have a support level for every size company or organization.

Wouldn’t it be nice if coaches studied?

We hear from so many soccer leagues that rely on hundreds of volunteer coaches in their rec soccer program to take online courses or study extensive curriculum designed to create thorough, “progressive” practice sessions. Some may actually do it. But we know that many, maybe most, do not. It is all they can do to find enough time to get to practice after cutting out of work early. What do those folks do at the field? They typically end up just dividing the team into two and scrimmaging. That’s why we designed CoachDeck. The handy deck of cards with 52 good, fundamental drills designed by an A-Licensed coach not only make running a great practice a snap, but since each drill can be made into a fun game, the kids love every minute. It’s a great way for organizations to show appreciation to hard-working volunteers.
