The Chattanooga Football Club is launching an online version of its youth soccer program, Operation Get Active, to help kids stay healthy this summer. The program was created in 2016 with an aim to educate youth across Chattanooga about the importance of fitness and nutrition, according to a news release.

Operation Get Active will partner with the City of Chattanooga Youth and Family Development to create weekly soccer videos featuring staff, coaches and CFC players. The organization will give away free soccer balls for kids to use to follow along with the videos at home, the release states.
