The Charlotte Checkers PowerPLAY program helps encourage our youth to live a healthy lifestyle. It includes a nutrition presentation and floor hockey lesson, as well as a four-week diet and exercise tracker.

Throughout the program, teachers will encourage their students to fill out a wellness log recording healthy eating goals and physical activities completed each day. Each student who successfully logs their goals and achievements during the month will receive a free ticket to a Charlotte Checkers game.

“I think it’s great for our school to have an opportunity to partner with the Charlotte Checkers to promote nutrition and exercise in our schools,” said Keith Kramer, a P.E. teacher at Weddington Elementary who worked with the Checkers in the first year of the program. “Having members of the front office and players at our school to promote healthy eating and exercise was exciting for our kids and staff. We look forward to seeing both short term and long term results from this PowerPLAY program.”
