If you are unable to answer this question, then you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to measure your students’ fitness and activity levels using FITNESSGRAM® (FG), the premier youth physical fitness assessment tool with reporting capabilities!

The NFL has teamed up with The Cooper Institute to distribute FITNESSGRAM across all NFL markets*. Through the NFL PLAY 60 FITNESSGRAM evaluation project, select schools and after-school organizations will be granted the web-based version of FITNESSGRAM (FG 9), web-hosting for up to three years, one FITNESSGRAM Test Administration Kit, and support from The Cooper Institute. In return, sites will utilize FITNESSGRAM to track and report fitness and activity levels over a three year period. The results collected will be disseminated across the country to positively impact children’s activity levels.

The number of free licenses available is limited, so you must act now! If you are interested in joining this project please e-mail and/or call 1-800-635-7050 with the following information by January 18, 2012:

Responding does not guarantee acceptance into the project as is it up to each NFL team to select their sites and they have a limited number of licenses to grant.
