Triple Play: A Game Plan for the Mind, Body and Soul
Triple Play is a comprehensive program that addresses overall wellness for the mind, body and soul. Placing importance on physical activity, sound nutrition, and forming positive relationships, this program teaches members and their families about healthy lifestyles. The goal of Triple Play is to improve members' understanding and knowledge of sound nutrition and healthy food habits, increase the numbers of hours per day they participate in physical activities, and strengthen their ability to form positive relationships.
Because parents play such a crucial role in a child's healthy lifestyle, BGCA has a Triple Play Game Plan that can be used by parents at home.

Some say the games room is the heart of a Boys & Girls Club. Through games such as bumper pool, fooseball, ping pong and board games like chess, members improve motor skills, learn structure through rules and regulations, and gain an understanding of good sportsmanship and fair play. In the games room, members at an early age, learn respect, sharing and interpersonal skills that carry over into all of the activities throughout the Club and beyond. While the games room promotes leadership, honesty, respect and kindness, to the kids, it's all just fun and games. The front games room is for members ages 8-10, and the middle games room is for members ages 6-7.
