Our program enables youths to participate and enjoy a future of self-improvement. It is not impossible to set standards for all levels of overweight, underdeveloped and physically challenged youths. It is left to the judgment of our athletic staff and information received from the participant doctor to determine how exercise should be modified to meet an individual's needs. The program objectives are to test each youth 3 times during the course of the year. The first test takes place at the beginning of the year, to gauge their fitness levels. The second test is done in the middle of the year, and the final test is conducted a the end of the year to evaluate their progress to determine the needs of each youth in the program.
