BILLINGS - Registrations are open for Big Sky Fit Kids (BSFK) Challenge and and BSFK Day, programs encouraging statewide kids to remain active into the new year.
A branch of Montana's Big Sky State Games, the challenge is a free youth team physical activity and nutrition program where students track physical activity and fruit and vegetable consumption February 1- April 1. BSFK Day features participating schools or classrooms, providing 30 minutes of continuous vigorous physical activity during February 1- May 1 and also in the fall.
Each Big Sky Fit Kids Challenge team is coordinated by an adult Team Captain and consists of 10-30 kids. Teams include students from school classes, clubs, after school programs, youth groups, etc. Team Captains can register their teams at bigskyfitkids.org where they set up their personal dashboard to log their team’s activity and fruit/vegetable servings. Kids are in charge of recording their physical activity and fruit and vegetable servings on a daily recording sheet. Teams/schools that complete the BSFK Challenge tracking program and BSFK Day are entered in drawings for $500.
Those interested in registering for either program may visit bigskyfitkids.org or call the Big Sky State Games office at 406-254-7426.
