Sports, Fitness & Recreation
These programs help develop fitness, a positive use of leisure time, reduction of stress, appreciation for the environment, and social and interpersonal skills.
FITNESS AUTHORITY® promotes fitness in all youth.
NIKE Girls Sports Program
If a girl doesn't participate in sports by age 10, her chances of participating by the time she is 25 are less than 10 percent. Girls Sports programs are active at all club units.
The NIKE Games encourage Inter-Club competition, allowing youngsters to compete in basketball, soccer, softball and street hockey. Tournaments occur throughout the year. Awards include individual and team recognition.
NIKE Daily Challenges
Fitness and fun combined make NIKE Daily Challenges a non-competitive, yet challenging, popular series of programs. The Jackie Joyner-Kersee Challenge helps girls build new skills via a fun fitness circuit. The Michael Jordan Invent-A-Sport Challenge encourages creativity and fitness, allowing youngsters to create their own game or sport, illustrate and demonstrate the activity and play with peers. In the Ken Griffey Jr. Home Run Challenge, members build basic motor skills through throwing, catching and running games. The Dawn Staley Basketball Challenge offers instruction and practice in dribbling, assisting and shooting. The Jump Rope Challenge improves strength, skills and endurance as participants jump "against the clock."
