SportFit is a complete resource that educators may tailor to meet learning outcomes related to health, physical activity and other subjects. It is a free, easy-to-use interactive program that encourages children and youth to discover sports.

The Challenge is made up of eight activity stations measuring physical abilities. Then, students take a short survey about their personal preferences. SportFit then tabulates the sports that may suit them and generates a personalized certificate listing the top three summer and winter sports they would be good at, based on their physical capabilities and personal preferences. Then students may explore these sports - from lessons to historical moments to finding their local clubs and associations - using SportFit's extensive sport resources.
