We encourage you to access the resources below as well as encourage your kids to Get Active with MLS!

 

 

 

Physical Activity

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention provides Physical Activity Guidelines for children and adolescents and provides a toolkit on how to get involved in keeping your child healthy, at home, at school and in your community.
