Healthy, Team-Building and Confidence Building

Athletic Activities & Sports at Ashcreek Academy

Health, Fitness, Competition, and Team-Building

Ashcreek offers a comprehensive set of activities and sports that meet the specific needs of our students. Our individualized attention doesn’t end with therapy… we continually seek to add and improve our activity and sports offerings based on the interest of our students.

Our activity and sports programs are built to help students advance athletically, get in shape, compete against themselves and others, create team camaraderie, build confidence, and ultimately develop a healthy community. Plus, it’s fun and often a great way to get off-campus and enjoy the surrounding area.

Like everything we do at Ashcreek Academy, athletics and fitness also include our therapeutic component customized to enhance the student’s individual treatment plan. Our athletics and fitness programs are designed and conducted by our trained therapists, so these aren’t simply fun or “free time” activities – they are integral to our holistic treatment program for boys.

Weekly Fitness Program

One of our students favorite weekday and weekend activities is working out. Our young men love to workout at the gym and create new goals for themselves and set new records.

Our students enjoy attending the rec center, located in St. George, UT, every week day. They are also able to attend on the weekends, if it is part of the schedule for that week. At the rec center they have the opportunity to lift weights, swim laps, play basketball and rock climb.

Fitness training also provides opportunities to engage in learning and reflection moments with the boys as they struggle, overcome, and look back at what small things done regularly over time can achieve. These lessons mirror real-life problems and solutions the boys recognize in their home life or interaction with peers. These are fitness habits the boys will take home with them and use in their “bag of tools” to keep fit, relieve stress, maintain confidence, and forever recall the life lessons learned in our program.

Experiential Activities at Ashcreek Residential Treatment Center for boys

As a program designed specifically for young men, we understand the interests and needs for many of our students to find a physical outlet. This isn’t about winning. It is about staying active, improving, and having fun. Research shows incredible benefits to the physical and emotional well-being of those who remain active.

Our varied sports and activity program gives every student the opportunity to try new things and build capabilities and confidence.
