Kids fitness program seeks applicants

VERGENNES - Addison Northwest Supervisory Union PEP project committee and our partners, the Vergennes Boys and Girls Club, are encouraging local residents and staff to help develop and run programs that will help elementary students to be physically active 150 minutes per week and 7-12 graders to be physically active 225 minutes per week during school hours, and outside of school.

Plans are to target students who normally would not join sports programs promote lifetime wellness activities, such as; yoga, golf, tennis, tae chi, running, skiing, snowshoeing, hiking/walking, dance, non-competitive team sports, nutrition awareness, etc. activities will be intramural - no outside competitions - emphasize challenging oneself not winning/losing share equipment to ensure that programs are successful and to keep the cost down.

Applications will be approved based on how many students will be involved, cost of the program and timeline of the program. If you aren't approved in the first round you can revise your application and reapply. All of the approved program leaders will need to pass a background check and complete a contract for services through the Vergennes Boys and Girls Club.

You can pick up an application at an ANWSU school or by emailing Mike Reiderer at bgcvergennes@comcast.net or call 877-6344.

The second round of application will be due Friday, Feb. 7. The third round of applications will be due Friday, April 4.
