Helpful hints

Suggestions for making your President’s Challenge program a success

Explain the goal of the program

Participants need to understand why staying active is important. Share this goal with parents, instructors and staff.

Encourage students

Try to offer as much flexibility for students as possible. Include activities that don’t require equipment or group participation. When possible, distribute awards in a public setting to give wide recognition to students who have completed the program.

Explain what’s required

The idea behind the President’s Challenge program is to let students find activities they like and in the case of LGP appreciate the fitness benefits of paddling.

Complete the activity log

Have students track their progress at the online activity log or on paper.
