Move Your Way® Southern Nevada
Move Your Way®
The Move Your Way campaign encourages people to discover the new physical activity guidelines and helps you incorporate them into everyday life. Getting regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do to stay healthy.
Did you know most things we do count? The best way to get active is whatever gets you moving! Cleaning your house, walking the dog, playing with your kids, all count towards being active. The goal is to move more and sit less throughout the day. Adults should aim to be active for 150 minutes each week, and children should be active for at least an hour a day.
Use this activity planner to set goals, choose activities you want to do, and get tips to help you stay motivated. When you’re done, print your plan to track activity throughout the week.

National Youth Sports Strategy
The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend that children and adolescents ages 6-17 get at least 60 minutes a day of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. Regular physical activity improves cardiovascular health, strengthens bones & muscles and helps to maintain healthy body weight. Playing sports is one-way youth can get the physical activity they need.
Participation in sports provides cognitive and social benefits as well. Sports participation also provides opportunities for youth to develop social and interpersonal skills, such as teamwork and leadership. Benefits also include higher levels of self-esteem, confidence in their abilities and improved academic performance.
Not all youth have the same opportunity to participate in sports. The Health and Human Services Department developed the National Youth Sports Strategy (NYSS) to address these disparities and the related barriers in order to improve youth sports participation and access. The Southern Nevada Health District is proud to be a NYSS champion and continues to support efforts to increase access to youth sports. We are committed to working toward the NYSS vision: that one day, all youth will have the opportunity, motivation, and access to play sports — regardless of their race, ethnicity, sex, ability, or ZIP code.
There are a number of actions youth sports organizations can take to help lower the risk of COVID-19 exposure and reduce the spread during competition and practice. CDC’s Toolkit for Youth Sports includes resources and tools to help youth sports administrators, coaches, and parents protect their teams and players and communicate with their communities
