The Play Fit-Stay Fit! fitness component is geared toward alleviating the late effects of cancer.
Each child is evaluated by an experienced physical therapist and then integrated into a physical activity group with children of similar age and physical activity status. A smaller class size allows each child plenty of individualized attention.
The fitness program is structured in three progressive phases that are tailored to each
child’s individual needs and progress:
- General conditioning
- Strength and endurance
- Power, agility, and sport-specific skills
Group counseling for children:
- Healthy eating habits
- Sound nutrition
- Psychological and social issues
Group counseling for parents:
- Meet other families who share similar experiences
- Acquire information and education to help make the best health decisions for your child
- Gain social support
