WHAT IS ACTIVE GAMECOCKS?
South Carolina Athletics is excited to continue its initiative of combating increasing problems in childhood obesity. An incentive-based program, Active Gamecocks presented by Absolute Total Care strives to foster elementary and middle school students’ interests in sports and physical activity.
Note: due to NCAA compliance regulations, only students in grades K – 8 can participate.
Through Active Gamecocks, we encourage elementary and middle school physical education teachers to challenge their students to keep a log of all physical activity done outside of the classroom over a two-week time period. The goal we’ve set this year for students is to complete a total of 400 minutes of physical activity, or an average of 30 minutes a day, outside of the classroom throughout the two weeks. If the student reaches this goal of 400 minutes, they are eligible to receive a voucher for two complimentary tickets (one student and one guardian) to a predetermined Gamecock sporting event.
The program takes place during the academic year, with two different sessions offered. Classrooms are allowed and encouraged to participate in both sessions. Homeschooled and online students are included to participate in Active Gamecocks!
