I like how easy the program is to run/lead. I appreciate the variety of tools and tips! The support given to me in getting BOKS off the ground at my school has made it even more of a pleasure to run as I didn't have any worries or stress in the least to deal with. I also love it when the kids all get into an activity, compete and cheer each other on. The fun, energizing spirit that comes through in the gym at 7:30 am is pure joy.

Helping Kids Build Their Intrinsic Motivation

As we look to summer, we find ourselves more invigorated and motivated to dust off our sedentary winter ways and get outside to move. Exactly what drives our motivation to get active can really impact the ways in which we engage and build positive connections to physical activity- kids are no different. Traditional models of education, recreation, and other spaces that include physical activity [...]
