Sign up today for NFL Play60 Honolulu

Have you registered yet? The NFL Pro Bowl is coming to town in just two short weeks and  is offering Girl Scouts of Hawai`i an opportunity to participate in their Play 60 initiative! Girls Scouts from Brownies through Seniors can sign up for a free Play60 event coming to Kapiolani Park in Honolulu on January 30th. Girls will learn skills and drills with certified NFL coaches and learn about the importance of exercise. Participating Girl Scouts will also earn an NFL Play60 event patch. See below. 

In order to participate, girls will need to register online and complete both a GSH health form and an NFL waiver (to come). Play 60 is the NFL’s campaign to encourage kids to get 60 minutes of exercise a day. The event here on Oahu will allow girls to interact with certified coaches and to practice skills and drills like running and passing. If your troop is working on one of the legacy Athlete badges, this event fits right in! 

Join us for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Have friends who'd like to join in the fun but who aren't Girl Scouts yet? It's not too late for them to register as members and participate in the event.
