Operation Get Active – is a health initiative that uses the game of soccer to encourage youth to live active and healthy lifestyles. We aim to inspire and educate youth across Chattanooga about the importance of health, fitness, and nutrition.
We currently work with 16 Title I Hamilton county elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 6 Rec centers in the greater Chattanooga area. We hope to expand to all elementary schools in Chattanooga, and then middle schools.
The spring break showcase was held on April 4, 2018. It was an opportunity for the kids that participate in OGA to come out and play soccer and make new friends, during spring break. It’s a great time to see kids from different communities and parts of the cities to play alongside each other.
It was a friendly tournament where kids weren’t meant to play with other kids from different schools and learn to play together. The main object was FUN.
We were thankful to have VDOC and his inflatable 3v3 fields.
The Showcase is also designed to acclimate the kids to the tournament style of play for our end of season tournament.
