Caddo Parish, LA - Caddo Parish Parks and Recreation has joined forces with D1 Training Shreveport to offer a variety of free health and wellness training programs for Caddo Parish middle school students, physical education teachers and athletic coaches, aiming to improve the overall health and wellness of Caddo Parish youth.

 

Throughout the remainder of 2021 and continuing into 2022, Caddo Parish middle school students will participate in several health and wellness field day activities hosted at D1 Training, located at 727 American Way, Shreveport, LA 71106.  All fitness activities will be led by nationally certified speed and strength coaches.
