PLAAY Day

A Half Hour of Synchronized Activity

February 21, 2019

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.

Happy November and Welcome to PLAAY!
 
We have exciting news we have been waiting to share regarding PLAAY Day and PLAAY SuMMit!
 
Firstly, we are proud to announce the Alaska Chapter of The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) supports PLAAY Day and PLAAY SuMMit as these activities are formally aligned with AAP Policy. The support from the Alaska AAP chapter is significant in helping us grow forward.
 
Secondly, and just as exciting, we have partnered with Special Olympics Alaska and PLAAY Day 2019 (PD’19) will be at the Special Olympics Center in Mountain View! Follow the link to look at their amazing facility: http://specialolympicsalaska.org/who-we-are/sport-health-wellness-center/
 
This will present and even greater opportunity to reach more kids and adults of all abilities for our “shared-exercise” experience on PLAAY Day. We’ll be specifically reaching out to schools in Alaska and some L48 schools as well. 
 
Did you know that UAA is now offering a class for PLAAY? There are seven students enrolled in PEP490 and their class project is creating, developing and leading the exercises on PD’19.
 
The theme for PD’19 is #Exercise Leadership!
 
PLAAY Summit (PS’19) 2019 is going to have another year of outstanding presentations. We are in the early stage of scheduling our presenters and finalizing our Keynote Speaker for 2019. 
 
We will send out the PS’19 Agenda in early December and begin online registration. Last year, we sold out and we will send an early registration opportunity for 2018 attendees.
 
We are excited about our new partnerships and growth heading in to 2019. 
 
Thank You for taking time to visit us at PLAAY.
