Sports As A Hook (SAAH) was launched in response to the youth obesity crisis and focuses on structured physical and nutrition activities that connect sports to lessons on healthy living, teamwork, resilience, and gender equality. To ensure our students are active every day, we offer a range of diverse team and individual sports such as wrestling, soccer, basketball, dance, cheer, and rugby. Competitive sports such as basketball, soccer, wrestling, rugby and cheer & dance all culminate in organization wide competitive tournaments. As part of SAAH, students research and design creative ways to incorporate community service into physical activities, such as organizing fundraising events for charity. Such activities develop students’ sense of community responsibility, empathy, and leadership skills. We also instruct students on topics such as caloric intake and distinguishing between healthy and unhealthy foods. Students use this information to give their diets “makeovers,” determining how to eliminate or substitute poor food choices with healthy ones. Students also learn how to read nutrition labels, calculate optimal caloric intake and burn rates, medicinal uses of foods, and tactics for making small lifestyle adjustments to achieve healthy results.
