TRIPLE PLAY: A Game Plan for the Mind, Body and Soul

Triple Play, sponsored by The Coca-Cola Company and Kraft Foods Inc., is a dynamic wellness program currently being offered in Boys & Girls Clubs that demonstrates how eating right, keeping fit and forming positive relationships add up to a healthy lifestyle. The goal of the Triple Play program is to improve Club members' knowledge of healthy habits; increase the number of hours per day they participate in physical activities; and strengthen their ability to interact positively with others and engage in positive relationships.
Program components include:

  • Healthy Habits Nutrition Curriculum
  • Daily Challenges
  • Sports Clubs
  • Triple Play Games
  • Social Recreation

Triple Play Parents Game Plan

Because parents play such a critical role in the development of a child's physical and social well-being, in February 2007, BGCA, Coca-Cola and Kraft launched a tool that could be used at home - where healthy habits start, are modeled and reinforced.
