March Madness Exerball Tournament
This year’s Human Resources Fitness and Wellness Division’s March Fitness Challenge is the Henrico County March Madness Exerball Tournament! As you are aware, basketball is a challenging team effort sport where one team is trying to outscore their opponent. Well, similar to how basketball functions, this “Exerball” tournament will include a similar scoring system yet based on exercise and wellness (there are no real basketball games). This challenge includes teamwork through team-building activities, constant communication, motivation, continuing education, community engagement, exercise, and various health and fitness aspects. So instead of “shooting baskets” for scoring, you will be involved in exercise and wellness activities. Therefore, everyone is welcome to join a team and play despite fitness level!
Watch the teams advance on the bracket system for a chance to play in the live head-to-head finals championship game on April 4!
For complete details please see the flyer and tournament instructions below. Once your team is ready, turn-in the sign-up sheet by March 6 and then start filling out your score cards on March 10!

The Department of Human Resources’ Fitness & Wellness Division announces a new social fitness campaign!
Teams of employees will work together to create the dedication needed to achieve individual health goals. Initially each team will be created by two people (i.e. the team captains). The team captains will be able to add co-workers to their team each month of the campaign. Team members will set goals and share achievements with their team captains and the Fitness & Wellness Division.
Who will be winners? The Fitness & Wellness Division will recognize teams each month of the campaign. Possible recognition could include the most hours spent exercising or most weight lost in a month. With team captain encouragement, all teams and team members are sure to win the best prize possible: improved health! Accomplish your health and fitness goals by registering for Henrico F.I.T.T.
