The program consists of 6 to 10, 45-minute boxing fitness sessions within a 6-10 week time frame (or session). Participants learn the fundamentals of boxing (e.g., how to throw punches) and engage in age-appropriate boxing and fitness drills. Students receive their own gloves and a certification of completion at the end of the session.
FUEL at School is offered to preschool, elementary, and middle school students and is available at select schools (and if it’s not currently available at your school, submit the form below and we will be in touch right away with information!). All programs are staffed with a senior instructor and have a junior instructor who is a high school or college student interested in working with children. All instructors are required to have proper clearances and be CPR/First-Aid certified.
Currently, we are working with Main Line Reform Temple, Torah Academy, Inquiry Charter School, and Har Zion. We are looking forward to launching new programs at The Shipley School, Agnes Irwin School, and The Baldwin School in Fall 2018. Stay tuned for more schools to be added to our list!
Our FUEL at School programs are funded by the parents who wish to get their child involved. However, our ultimate goal is to continue expanding the program and offer FUEL at School to kids at schools where the cost may be prohibitive. For every few parent or school funded program we launch, we aim to launch another program funded through donations, sponsorships, or partnerships at schools where the parents/children cannot afford the cost. This fall we will launch our first sponsored program – nominations will open soon!
Ultimately, we want kids of all ages to learn the value of health and fitness in a fun and welcoming environment and give kids who may not excel at team sports a chance to do something that will empower and strengthen their minds and bodies.
For more information about the program, please reach out to the program director, Jen Crompton (firstname.lastname@example.org).
