About Us

The SHAPES Program was developed after an extensive preschool physical activity research study conducted by the Children’s Physical Activity Research Group (CPARG) at the University of South Carolina. CPARG is an interdisciplinary team of faculty, staff, and graduate students who are dedicated to promoting health-enhancing physical activity for children and adolescents.
