This afternoon, Athletic Trainers Raegan Fuller, ATC and Jeff Durand, ATC led a series of games for middle schoolers at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Danville Area.
Danville Orthopedic & Athletic Rehab partnered with the Boys & Girls Club on this activity in support of the club’s healthy lifestyles initiative, which includes encouraging physical fitness and sports activities.
Our Athletic Trainers were the perfect people to lead this activity. Not only are they experts in exercise, but Jeff and Raegan are also both youth volleyball coaches – so of course they brought volleyballs! We played “Human Net,” which involves dividing into three teams: two opposing teams and a third team that serves as – you guessed it – a human net!
The kids’ favorite game was “Barnacle.” Players start by running around the gym. When the game leader calls out a command, the players take a position. The last one into position is out… Play continues until only one player remains.
We had a blast this afternoon, and can’t wait to visit the Club again soon!
