Field Trips

In recent years, we have come to face the alarming truth that many children are headed for a lifetime of health issues due to obesity. We are reaching out to ALL children, athlete and non-athlete, by developing a program to change the way kids feel about exercise and nutrition.

We invite you to partner with us in this campaign against the most serious health issue facing our nation's youth. The West Suburban Sports Complex provides school children in Illinois a high-tech, high-energy and social fitness education experience like none other, combining education, exercise and gaming. This interactive “exer-gaming” destination meets Illinois State Learning Standard Goals, including: 

  • Goal #19: Movement Skills

  • Goal #20: Physical Education

  • Goal #22: Health Promotion/Prevention/Treatment

  • Goal #23: Human Body Systems

  • Goal #24: Communication & Decision Making

Field trips consist of four stations: nutrition, railyard fitness, team building and the Vault.

Nutrition: Our media center is where we deliver a number of healthy-living messages through staff presenters and video tips from pro athletes. This area will focus on health education customized to the age of the group.

Railyard Fitness: Students will climb, crawl, jump, slide and balance their way to a great time. Our staff will be creative in designing mini-competitions for each age group.

Team Building: Participate in a variety of fun and interactive team-building activities to laugh, learn and connect with your team!

The Vault: The most unique exercise + gaming experience in America! Your students will love “The Vault,” and so will you when you see the magic of combining video gaming and exercise. That's the power of "exer-gaming.”
