Education is everything. Learn to make a difference. The PLAAY Summit and PLAAY Day help community leaders better work with Alaska’s youth to emphasize physical activity in addressing health and wellness.

PLAAY Day

February 22, 2018

A Half Hour of Synchronized Activity- The goal is to get thousands of Alaska children jumping, running, and dancing — all at once. PLAAY Day is Alaska’s first simultaneous student physical activity event. Schools and other organizations from across the state will engage elementary students in a half hour of organized — and synchronized — physical activity.

PLAAY Summit

February 23-24, 2018

A Conference for Leaders of Youth- Featuring a slate of field experts from around the state, the PLAAY Summit provides teachers, parents, nurses, coaches, administrators and other leaders of youth with a conference to address the multi-factorial areas of adolescent health. PLAAY will emphasize the importance of physical activity as a means to improving teenage health.

The conference focuses on psychological and social-emotional  development, and the creation of opportunities for education and training of adult leaders who work with children.

Positive Leadership for Active Alaska Youth

Happy October and Welcome to PLAAY!

We have been busy and we are excited about the planning and development phase for PLAAY 2018! Lots of exciting updates to share…

We’ve been invited to speak at several education meeting/conferences in the month of October to let them know about PLAAY and our scheduled events for February 2018. We will have an early-bird discount for PLAAY Summit open for registration by October 21st.

We are excited to announce that David Marsh will be our VIP and Keynote speaker for PLAAY Summit 2018. David and his wife Kristin will make their first visit to Alaska on Feb 21st and will start the next morning to cheer for the kids on PLAAY Day Feb 22nd. David was the US Women’s Swimming Head Coach in the Rio Olympics in 2016. Currently, David is the Head Coach at the Univ. of California San Diego. David and Kristen are coming to be part of PLAAY and to work with Anchorage area youth swimming and their coaches during scheduled “coaches clinics” during his visit. A BIG Thanks to the Area Council Swimming group to help co-sponsor David and Kristin’s venture north.  View an Alaska greeting from David here

Miss Alaska 2017 Alyssa London will be our “Official Emcee” for PLAAY Day 2018. Alyssa is excited to be part of PLAAY and help us connect kids and communities all throughout out our great state. Our PLAAY Day cast is returning with a theme of “Winter Olympics” for our LIVE session at 10 am on the 22nd.
