Noncompetitive physical activities

  • Youth running


Get exercise and build friendships in a noncompetitive atmosphere.


Plan an event that is physical but casual and noncompetitive. Encourage the youth to suggest activities based on their interests, or use the ideas below. Consider how this activity could be tied to a large service project. For example, before going on a hike, the youth could clean up the grounds close to where the hike will take place. At the conclusion of the activity, invite the youth to share any spiritual lessons they learned from participating in the activity (for example, if you go on a hike, they might share their feelings about the beauties of God’s creations and our responsibility to take care of them).

  • Hold a 5K fun run.
  • Go swimming.
  • Go on a bike ride.
  • Go on a hike.
  • Go roller-skating or skateboarding.
