Health History Form

Avera Sacred Heart Hospital’s Acceleration and Challenge Programs benefit participants of all abilities. We offer a wide range of training programs for youth ages 10-18 years old, from the beginner to the elite level. These programs are designed to help participants reach their optimal potential with a focus on fitness and wellness.

The participants current physical condition will be assessed and testing performed to determine strengths and weaknesses. Trainers will develop specific goals to increase overall wellness and achieve optimal performance for each participant. The pre-test assessment is then compared to a post-test analysis to determine areas of improvement and measure the participants hard work and dedication.
