Founded with the help of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Triple Play operates with a mission of raising the physical activity levels of children between the ages of 6 and 18 through exercise routines, games, sports, and six unique Daily Fitness Challenges. As a complete health and wellness program, Triple Play also touches on matters of eating healthily and developing healthy personal relationships. The program even engages parents and guardians through the Healthy Habits program and Triple Play Parents Game Plan.
