What is BOKS?
BOKS is a free physical activity program for kids of all ages and abilities.
The BOKS program includes lesson plans, training, and support needed to get kids moving for up to 45 minutes a day. It also includes shorter movement breaks, games, and activities tailored to your needs as an educator or parent.
Kids are not getting enough physical activity.
Regular physical activity is proven to help prevent and manage non-communicable diseases, and help with physical health, mental health issues, and academic performance and yet, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) 81% of adolescents do not do enough physical activity.
