This commentary by HOST authors Jean L. Wiecha, Jennifer Hofman, Michael W. Beets, Amy Rauworth, Natalie Colabianchi, Anne Ferree, and Georgia Hall describes physical activity standards for Out-of-School Time programs and argues that their widespread adoption presents important opportunities for research on their implementation and impact.
