Gentext/Remarks/1. Purpose. To solicit innovative human performance program ideas and recommendations from across the Marine Corps for the Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20) Human PerformanceAdvisory Council (HPAC). This includes, but is not limited to, recommendations and ideas surrounding the Physical Fitness Test, Combat Fitness Test, Marine Corps Martial Arts Program, Force Fitness Instructor Program, Sports Medicine and Injury Prevention Program, Marine Corps Water Survival Training Program, and Military Occupational Specialty Specific Physical Standards. Human Performance Office (HPO), is also seeking inputs to enhance related areas such as resiliency, education on performance nutrition and sleep, integration of technology to optimize physical, mental, social, and spiritual performance, and active recovery. All submissions will be considered by the HPAC.
2. Background. Innovative thinking has long been a hallmark of the Marine Corps. Today's environment requires greater innovation and creativity. Established in March 2017, the Force Fitness Division was designed to serve as the service level lead in all aspects of physical fitness and injury mitigation. As of 15 April 2020 the Force Fitness Division was renamed the Human Performance Office to better reflect their expanding responsibilities to include the recently established Resiliency Branch to drive collaboration in order to address the mental, spiritual, and social domains that impact the overall fitness of Marines. The HPAC will enable the HPO to better support the Marine Corps Physical Fitness Program (MCPFP) and enhance holistic human performance of every Marine by leveraging health and fitness resources, emerging physical fitness technologies, and best practices from human performance training and educational organizations. Additionally, information will be sought on COVID 19 Human Performances practices and activities.
3. Marines will have the opportunity to provide feedback, recommendations, and ideas for improving the MCPFP and programs that address mental, social, and spiritual fitness. Submit feedback, recommendations, and ideas via the online module on the HPO webpage at: http:(slash)(slash)www.fitness.marines.mil/. Individuals can submit more than one idea. The deadline for submissions is 31 July 2020. Point of contact information must be provided in submissions, hard copies will not be accepted.
4. Inputs received will be discussed at the FY20 HPAC which is tentatively scheduled for 15-17 September 2020 aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico.
5. Additional instructions for HPAC participants will be sent via separate correspondence.
6. Questions concerning HPAC action item submission can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
