Promoting physical fitness has always been a central goal of the PFA. From the beginning of the Falcon movement, the motto “W Zdrowym Ciele Zdrowy Duch” or “A Healthy Spirit in a Healthy Body” has motivated Nests to provide physical education to their Members, with an early focus on gymnastics and drills. Over time, the programs have evolved to include a wide variety of activities, including volleyball, swimming and track and field events. The highlight of the Falcon athletics program though is the National Zlot. Beginning in 1894, these mini-Olympic games have been held every few years in conjunction with the PFA’s National Convention, bringing together Falcons from all over. The National Zlot is a celebration of the Polish Falcons commitment to strong bodies and strong minds.
