Boys & Girls Clubs - Alaska Athletics believes sports matter in the lives of youth and kids benefit positively through being active and learning valuable life lessons like perseverance, humility, integrity, compassion, courage, accountability, teamwork, sportsmanship, and so much more. 

Because of the positive impact on the lives of youth sports can provide, Boys & Girls Clubs - Alaska Athletics has designed this Digital Community Board to promote opportunities, which aren't in direct competition with BGAC Athletics programs, kids can take advantage of by stepping onto the field/court and playing, which ultimately will result in a stronger, longer, and healthier lifestyle .  


Play Every Day

In 2012, Play Every Day was launched to increase public awareness about the health risks of childhood obesity and the importance of physical activity to prevent and reduce obesity. Its goal is to promote and support physically active families and children. The department is a partner of Healthy Futures, which organizes and runs the Healthy Futures Challenge for elementary-age children. Play Every Day works with schools to promote the Challenge and ask parents to make physical activity a part of their family’s day. Play Every Day will continue to focus on the health benefits of physical activity while also working toward reducing the consumption of sugary drinks and promoting water and fat-free or low-fat milk as the healthiest drink options for Alaska children and their families.
