Hargrave Athletics Implements Presidential Youth Fitness Challenge to its Cadet Athletes.

The Presidential Youth Fitness Program (PYFP) is the national fitness education and assessment program that offers presidential recognition to schools and students. The program provides a model to help schools achieve excellence in physical education through quality fitness assessment practices. The Presidential Youth Fitness Program cultivates and promotes a healthy lifestyle through regular exercise and serves as an important indicator of physical fitness.

The program consists of 6 main objectives Cadets must complete.

  1. Complete 57 or more curl-ups (sit-ups) in a minute.
