Elements of the Active Cadet Physical Fitness Program


Mission:  The goal of the cadet physical fitness program is to increase cadets' physical fitness and to motivate them to develop a lifelong habit of regular activity.

There are five facets to the Cadet Physical Fitness Program:

  • Activities- Get moving!  The heart of the cadet fitness program is activities.  Cadets will experience a range of fun, structured activities at squadron meetings and weekend events.

  • Academics- To get the most benefit from the program it's important that cadets understand the concepts of fitness, training, nutrition, and more.  Cadets learn about these ideas in both classroom and hands-on lessons, and then put them into action in their daily lives.

  • Attitudes- Cadets develop a positive relationship with fitness through the support of their squadron and their peers.  New cadets start by working with a fitness mentor, and then become the mentors themselves.

  • Assessment- To plan where you're going, you have to know where you are.  A quarterly fitness test will help cadets identify current fitness levels for personal goal setting and progress evaluation.

  • Awards- Celebrate cadets' efforts with a variety of awards.  Different awards recognize every level of fitness and each echelon of the program.

The Cadet Physical Fitness Program is aligned with the Presidential Youth Fitness Program (PYFP).  PYPF is a comprehensive fitness program that promotes physical activity and fitness for improving the health of America's young people.
