Youth Sports and Fitness
Participants are required to be registered in CYS before enrolling in any Youth Sports and Fitness activities. To register, please visit Parent Central Services.
An annual Sports Physical must be completed annually, prior to the start of the sports season. The form must be completed with a doctor’s signature and stamp and submitted to Parent Central Services during registration.
Hint: The best time to get your child’s physical, if possible, is in July so your child’s physical will be valid for all sports for one full year.

- Get Fit… Be Strong
A comprehensive health, fitness and wellness campaign designed to increase children and youth’s physical activity and teach them healthy lifestyle techniques. The “Get Fit, Be Strong” initiative is executed in School Age Care (SAC), Middle-school/Teen Programs (MST), Child & Youth Sports & Fitness (CYSF) and Army Youth Programs in Your Neighborhood (AYPYN) Schools.
All children and youth enrolled in SAC, MST, CYSF and AYPYN programs have daily opportunities to participate in self-directed and staff-facilitated physical fitness activities while earning recognition from the President’s Challenge Physical Activity & Fitness Awards Program.
Parents and CYS/AYPYN staffs are also able to participate in this initiative, thus setting great examples and serving as role models for children and youth.
