It’s here! Download your copy of the Salida Recreation Youth Fitness Challenge here or pick up a copy at the pool!
Step 1: Register. It’s free and you will receive 2 free swim passes (1 youth, 1 adult or 2 youth)! Fill out the attached form and return it to Salida Hot Springs Aquatic Center.
Step 2: Read through the entire list of activities. Some activities are most suited to younger kids and some to older kids, but most activities can be done by all ages with an adult to help at times.
Step 3: Star, mark, circle or highlight the activities you plan to do. You can always change your mind, or end up doing more.
Step 4: Get going and doing! Every activity is free and should be done safely and legally! Adults, you are an important factor in your child’s physical activity level and nutrition. Take this challenge as an opportunity to spend time with your child.
Step 5: Keep your point tally on the log. Some activities can be completed at once, and some are to be done overtime. Adults are required to sign off on each achievement.
Step 6: At the end of January, tally up your score. Bring your log into the Aquatic Center for a “You’re half-way there!” prize.
Step 7: Keep tracking your activities and your points through February.
Step 8: Return all paperwork (log and activity signoff sheet) to the Aquatic Center by March 3 to be eligible for prizes. Prizes will be awarded to the top point earners in 3 age categories: 5 and under, 6 – 9, and 10 and up. Winners will be notified by March 7.
