Today at Finley Stadium Operation Get Active hosted its End of Year Tournament, marking the end of its 2016 summer program.
Over 200 participants from eleven recreation and community centers across the city have been participating in OGA this summer. This group of kids and volunteers (including players from the Chattanooga Football Club) gathered at Finley Stadium to take part in a tournament with teams formed over the course of the program.
Operation Get Active is a health initiative that uses the game of soccer to encourage youth to live active and healthy lifestyles and is a program of the Chattanooga Football Club Foundation. In addition to improving children’s physical activity, there is also a strong focus on developing teamwork and leadership.
