Dysart Unified School District hosts Fitnessgram Pacer Lap Invitational
Dysart Pacer InvitationalThe Dysart Unified School District held their first Fitnessgram Pacer Lap Invitational on March 3 at Dysart High School, to help promote physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle.

A Pacer lap assessment is a cardio-endurance challenge that tests the student’s ability to run back and forth to timed instructions.  The test starts slower and gets faster every 7 laps.  The students run as many laps as they can within the allotted time.  

More than 200 runners participated from 10 K-8 schools in the district.  Boys and girls in grades 4th through 8th grade were awarded medals for placing in the top three of their grade level.  Additionally, an all-school championship trophy was presented to the school with the most overall points earned by their team.

Fitnessgram is a fitness assessment and reporting program for youth, first developed in 1982 by The Cooper Institute in response to the need for a comprehensive set of assessment procedures in physical education programs. The assessment includes a variety of health-related physical fitness tests that assess aerobic capacity, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition. Fitnessgram is an educational tool that helps students learn as part of a high quality, standards-based physical education curriculum.  They learn how it feels to become more physically fit and how to value a physically active lifestyle.
