SUMMER training SPECIAL! August 8, 2019

****A FEW travel scholarships ARE STILL available - ACT NOW!! ****

Special Olympics Alaska Sports Complex, Mt. View, Anchorage

First time ever - a summer professional development opportunity. On August 8th, there will be two half-day trainings held in Anchorage, at the Special Olympics Athlete Training Center: 

  1.  PAL Training (Physical Activity Leader). Do you want to be the PAL Champion in your school? This half-day training will give you the skills to help your students and staff create a dynamic environment, with a ton of movement opportunities throughout the day. This training would be great for anyone (PE teacher, school nurse, recess monitors, classroom teacher - literally anyone who wants to be the champion for increased movement in your school community!)

  2. Jessica Shawley, Middle School PE Teacher of the Year:  If you want to kick-off the start of your school year with a treasure-trove of new ideas, a new & improved collection of best practices for your classroom, and and energy-boost of inspiration that will last through Christmas break, then you will want to attend this half-day session! This session is perfect for every physical educator, grades K-12, who is ready to expand their repertoire, get new ideas, or experience new ways to reach their students. 

Registration is only $25 (but is FREE to all current SHAPE Alaska members). Yes, there will be one UAA credit available for those interested. More information about the UAA credit option will be forthcoming.
