Resistance Training At Boys And Girls Club Of Central Texas

It is now an Omni present problem that youngsters are suffering from various life threatening problems. These can be either social or physical or mental in nature which cannot be handled by parents alone. It requires a specialized person to talk to them and make them understand in the right way. Situation can get even worse if we become harsh on them.

The problems that most of the youth suffer include addiction to tobacco, smoking, alcohol, drugs and premature sexual activity. They must be taught to differentiate between the right and wrong habits that can have a huge impact on their lives.

We at Boys and Girls Club Of Central Texas run a resistance training program for these kids who need personal attention and right motivation to bring them back on the right track. We make them get engaged in interactive and small group activities that helps them in enhancing their life skills and build in them leadership skills.

The education program aims at dealing with their problems and by involving them in discussions, practicing resistance and refusal skills, developing boldness, strengthening decision making skills and examining the media and peer influence. They are made to understand the harmful effects of tobacco and drug use.

The program is conducted throughout the year to encourage teamwork with the club staff, youngsters, their parents and guardians.  The program has been categorized as follows:

  • SMART Kids, for children between 6 to 9 years of age.
  • Start SMART, for children between 10 to 12 years of age.
  • Stay SMART, for children between 13 to 15 years of age.
  •  SMART Parents
  • SMART Leaders, a peer leader/booster program for older teens
  • F.A.N. Club (Family Advocacy Network), an educational program for parents and caregivers of SMART Moves participants, it is also offered in the collaboration between BGCA and Pennsylvania State University, with an aim to achieve a positive result in tacking the kid’s problems.
