Operation Get Active goes online, giving away free soccer balls
Operation Get Active (OGA), a program of the Chattanooga Football Club Foundation, is launching an online version of its soccer program for youth to stay active at home this summer.
In partnership with the City of Chattanooga Youth and Family Development department, OGA will be releasing weekly follow along soccer videos, conducted by OGA staff, coaches and special guests like the Chattanooga Football Club players.
No soccer ball, no problem.OGA is also going to be giving away 512 free soccer balls so that children can follow along to the videos at home if they don't already have access to their own equipment. 512 represents the number of children OGA would normally work with during a typical summer of programming.
We are excited to be launching this new version of our program and working with our partners at Chattanooga Youth and Family Development, our mission is to encourage young people and adults to live active, healthy lifestyles. So whilst we are not able to do this in person right now, we are pleased we can deliver our program a different way, said Peter Woolcock, Director of Operation Get Active.
