Professional baseball players know the importance of maintaining their fitness level. Children need help to learn that staying active and eating the right things can make them better baseball players, or computer programmers, or whatever they like to do.
The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation teamed up with Medical Center of Arlington to create fitness themed learning aids for Arlington Independent School District fifth graders. The Texas Rangers MCA Fitness All-Stars program uses team mascot Rangers Captain as a catalyst to get kids excited about the types of activities that lead to long term healthy lifestyles. Through texasrangers.com, kids and parents who may not have had the chance to watch the short videos in class can watch them together here.
Parents: Look for the printed material below with ideas you and your child's teachers can use to help kids have fun while making themselves healthier. Medical Center of Arlington's staff prepared these educational materials to reinforce and expand upon the lessons taught in the videos.
The Texas Rangers MCA Fitness All-Stars project is a joint outreach vehicle of the Medical Center of Arlington, the Arlington Independent School District, and the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation.
Rangers Captain is the official mascot of the Texas Rangers Baseball Club, and, he asked us to point out, an excellent dancer. Medical Center of Arlington is the Official Hospital of the Texas Rangers and, they asked us to point out, an excellent place to rehabilitate any injuries sustained while dancing on dugouts.
