Located at Freedom Park in Charlotte, the Play 60 KidZone is a one-of-a-kind play space for kids and families. Constructed on synthetic grass, it features an obstacle course, 40-yard dash with automated timing, climbing structure, photo booth, pep talk station with messages from Panthers players and other great elements designed to get kids moving.


Play 60 Kids Combine

Located at Romare Bearden Park in Third Ward on game days, the Fuel Up to Play 60 Kids Combine - presented by the Dairy Alliance - is a free, interactive area that promotes youth fitness through a variety of football skills and drills for children. The Kids Combine opens two-and-a-half hours prior to game time and closes 30 minutes before kickoff.


Play 60 Action Break

The Carolina Panthers and Carolinas HealthCare System have teamed up to provide classrooms across the Carolinas with a series of fun, in-class Play 60 Action Breaks! Each Play 60 Action Break is led by a Panthers player, TopCats cheerleader or team mascot Sir Purr. Plus, students will receive an important health tip from Carolinas HealthCare.


Play 60 Challenge

The Carolina Panthers team up with the American Heart Association each spring for the PLAY 60 Challenge, a six-week contest that encourages students to lead healthy, active lifestyles. Participating schools are chosen on a regional basis with the American Heart Association.


Play 60 App

The NFL PLAY 60 app allows kids to get 60 minutes of physical activity each day through an interactive running experience that can be played on a smart phone or tablet. Players are immersed in an adventure where they are required to run, jump, pivot and turn in place in order for their character to do the same.
