Back to school time also means a fresh start to Fuel Up to Play 60! So what’s new? Here are a few things that Program Advisors AND students can use:

For Program Advisors: The Competition Stadium

  • New! Kick off Fuel Up to Play 60 with a friendly competition in your school! Visit your Dashboard at FuelUpToPlay60.com and enter “The Stadium” for great ideas and guidance on how to start a Fuel Up to Play 60 competition in your school.
  • Want to get your students excited about the new school year and about Fuel Up to Play 60? Start a competition in your school! Challenge another grade or classroom to see who tracks more days or to see how many badges are earned over a time period you control! It’s all at your fingers tips in The Stadium, available on all Program Advisor Dashboards at FuelUpToPlay60.com

For Students: ARE YOU IN? Pledge Campaign (August 1 – September 30)

  • “ARE YOU IN?” Join the nationwide Fuel Up to Play 60 Pledge Campaign – and get your friends to do it too!  The more people from your school that take the Fuel Up to Play 60 Pledge, the greater your school’s chance of winning a visit from an NFL player. Take the Pledge online at FuelUptoPlay60.com.
