On May 8, Hampton Bays Elementary and Middle School students competed in the 2017 NYSAHPERD-Suffolk Zone Fit Club Challenge at Lincoln Elementary School in Sayville.  

During the event, the 24 fourth- and fifth-graders, chaperoned by physical education teachers Tracey Carey, John Foster and Jeanne Polan, competed against students from 12 Suffolk County elementary schools. The students took on individual and team challenges including those related to muscular and cardiovascular strength and endurance activities, such as jump roping, tire flips, box jumps and sit-ups.

The goal of the Suffolk Zone Fit Club Challenge is to empower students with skills, tools, training and confidence to lead healthier lifestyles in a supportive, fun environment.
