About the Program
Now in its fifth year, NFL Network's Keep Gym in School program continues its mission to boost fitness and physical education across the country, as latest studies show youth facing alarming rates of obesity and related diseases. In 2012-2013, NFL Network is teaming up with NFL Play 60 and the Super Schools program to offer grants to schools in 32 NFL team markets and 2 national markets that show their commitment to health and wellness.

Teacher of the Year:
NFL Network will honor and reward one dedicated and inspiring Physical Educator with the PE Teacher of the Year award. Winners will receive a $10,000 stipend, a $5,000 school companion PE grant and a trip to the NFL Draft.

NFL Network has partnered with NASPE to develop instructional and educational content designed to get kids excited about PE. Lesson-plan and activity binders are distributed to all participating PE instructors within our adopted school districts. Click here
Public Service Campaign:
NFL Network has created a series of public service announcements for Keep Gym in School. These PSAs feature players from our NFL Club partners and are broadcast nationally on NFL Network, with NFL media partners and locally in program markets.
NFL Network believes that every student should have the opportunity to participate in quality physical education. We've created Keep Gym in School to increase access to in-school physical activity and to teach skills needed to establish and sustain healthy lifestyles.
