Shoot for your dreams during Week 6 of Camp Warner Bros., as soccer superstar, Alex Morgan, stars in the full-length feature film Alex & Me! The film follows the uplifting story of a young female athlete who learns how you need passion, determination, and self-worth to make all your dreams come true. This week’s activity involves creating a Goal Chart and also a fun Family Workout.
Summer is a great time for campers to think of their goals be it short term or long term! In Alex & Me, Reagan (played by Siena Agudong (“Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn,” and “ Star Falls”) uses a chart to keep track of her daily soccer drills as she progresses towards her goals.
This week at camp, we want to inspire our campers to follow their dreams and keep track of their personal goals with their Alex & Me Goal Chart, a great tool to motivate kids to strive to be their best. My kids are using their goals chart to work towards purchasing new video games and barbies!
Campers can hold themselves accountable, and mark off each item on their list as they are completed! Which is honestly my favorite part! I love how they can visually see their progress and watch as they get closer and closer to their goals.
In soccer, developing strength enables a player to better control his or her body when they are striking or heading the ball, making a save in a goal, or changing directions abruptly on the field. Participating in group physical activity can be fun, elevate your mood, and strengthen your body, and bond with your team all at the same time!.
Alex & Me Family Workout
It’s time to put some water in your camp tumblers, grab your towels and get ready to move your body while bonding with your kiddos with this fun Alex & Me Family Workout. Take it slow and just remember to have fun! The point is not to compete with each other, but it’s to help inspire and celebrate each of the successes of our campers with this activity.
*Please always use caution when exercising, and listen to your body. If something doesn’t feel right don’t do it! Daily exercise improves health, can reduce anxiety, and increases self-confidence, and working together to get through this list as a team will make the whole family feel great!
About Alex & Me:
Teenager Reagan Willis has one dream, to play soccer like her hero, Alex Morgan. Her bedroom is a shrine to all things Alex, including a life-size poster of the Olympic gold medalist. Yet in the Willis house, Reagan lives in the shadow of her prep football superstar brother, Logan.
When Reagan fails to make the cut of the premiere local soccer club team and is humiliated by her rival Claire, she’s certain her ship has sailed. But after accidentally hitting her head, Reagan’s poster of Alex Morgan suddenly comes to life, and everything changes!
