Do you like riding your bike, playing basketball, or running around your neighborhood? How would you like doing those things better? Imagine if you could ride further, run faster, and play longer! “Champions” is the program that can make that happen. “Champions” makes you better at what you do. And the best part… champions makes getting into shape fun!
During school or after school you can work out with your friends, run relay races, and even be challenged by obstacle courses. It doesn’t matter how big or strong you are, champions program is built for everyone.
At Altha School, we are so lucky to have the “Champions” program as part of our Physical Education Department. The program is sponsored by Capital Health Plan and implemented by Titus sports Academy of Tallahassee. It was started in 2005 as a way to improve a child’s coordination, flexibility/mobility, speed, agility, endurance, and strength. The program has grown from 7 schools in 2006 to 54 schools and serving over 20,000 participants.
The “Champions” program not only sends a trainer to conduct the program twice a week, but also has supplied equipment for the program. Another great part is we get to use the equipment on days the instructor is not here.
We are very blessed in that the program is implemented by former Blountstown athletes, Adam and Ben Faurot. Adam, CEO of Titus Sports Academy, and Ben, the Director of Operations for Titus, both have strong ties to Calhoun County and are excited to be a part of our Physical Education curriculum. What a great opportunity for our youth!
The program at Altha is each Monday and Wednesday with the students going through a set of exercises developed by Titus sports. The program is also at Blountstown Middle School on Tuesday and Thursday. The program instructor is assisted by the Coaches at each school.
Thanks to Capital Health Plan and Titus sports for this opportunity.
