Triple Play is a suite of three Targeted Programs intentionally written to build the skills, attitudes, knowledge, and behaviors essential to an overall healthy lifestyle. Healthy eating, physical activity and relationship building are addressed in Healthy Habits, Daily Challenges and Social Recreation. Together, the programs help young people learn to sustain the health of the mind, body, and soul.
The "Soul" component of the Triple Play program encompasses the social recreation activities that are critical to positive youth development. This new, targeted program builds the skills a young person needs to make healthy choices through cooperative, group-based activities that develop a young person's confidence in themselves and connection to others.
