UNLV Coaches Challenge

About the Challenge

The UNLV Athletic Department and the Southern Nevada Health District invite your classroom to participate in the UNLV Coaches Challenge, a program designed to encourage elementary students to eat healthy and be physically active.

Students and teachers earn points each day for eating fruits and vegetables and being physically active while learning the importance of making healthy choices.

This free program takes very little class time, aligns with language arts and mathematic state standards and is open to all first-through-fifth-grade classrooms in the Clark County School District.

Students and teachers earn points each day for eating fruits and vegetables and being physically active while learning the importance of making healthy choices. Points are tracked for 4-weeks on the tracker poster provided to each class. Report your classroom points by the end of the program (December 8th) and be eligible for the winning prizes! Each participating classroom will be sent a classroom tracking poster and program instructions before the program starts. All program materials including the weekly videos will be posted on our Coaches Challenge Teacher Materials page

At the end of the program the classroom from each grade with the highest average point total will receive a classroom visit from a UNLV head coach. Other prizes for classrooms could include, tickets to UNLV games, pencils, stickers etc. Each participating classroom will be mailed a Certificate of Achievement.
