Get ActiveThe Premier’s Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition was formed in May 2015 to develop initiatives aimed at helping Bermuda’s population to 
improve its health and wellness. One of the key initiatives developed by the Council is the Premier’s Youth Fitness Program. 
 
The Premier’s Youth Fitness Program (PYFP) is a school-based program for students from P5 / Grade 4 - S3 / Grade 11. It utilizes state of the art fitness testing via heart rate monitors and the Spirit System. The Spirit System is designed to be a non-competitive health-related fitness assessment based on scientifically established Healthy Fitness Zone stan-dards. The program will help schools evaluate and evolve their physical education programming into an education experience that supports the whole child. The testing enables physical education teachers to collect both biometric and fitness assessment data of stu-dents. The assessments will provide students and parents with an age appropriate fitness profile. The profiles will highlight your child’s areas of strength and provide recom-mendations for physical activity options for those areas that need improvement.

3. GibbonsAdia Gibbons and Emily Cabral were Bermuda’s dynamic duo as Bermuda clinched the Concacaf Girls’ Under-15 Championship Division Two title with a 2-1 win over Grenada at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, today.

Cabral set up Gibbons’s opener with virtually the last kick of the first half, before Nyah Hood equalised from a Melania Fullerton corner in the 48th minute.

Cabral then finished off a beautiful give-and-go with Gibbons in the 57th minute to give Bermuda the title.

Gibbons almost helped give Bermuda the lead in the fifth minute, but Katelyn Medeiros, who scored Bermuda’s only goal of the semi-final win over St Lucia on Friday, shot over the crossbar.
