PLAAY Day

A Half Hour of Synchronized Activity

February 20, 2020

PLAAY Day is Alaska’s first simultaneous physical activity event. Schools and organizations from across the state will engage elementary students and community partners in a half hour of organized — and synchronized — physical activity.

Happy November and Welcome to PLAAY!!

JOIN US for PLAAY sessions!
Each week, at 10 am Alaska time, (AKST) PLAAY (Positive Leadership for Active Alaska Youth) will be broadcasting a 30-minute exercise session for you to enjoy. You can join our sessions on our Facebook Page in real time on Facebook Live every Thursday or to do the session on your own schedule! All sessions will be archived on our website.
 
Each session will be led by various PLAAY Leaders in our community. Our weekly exercises will improve our ability to “reach and teach” children and adults on the importance of healthy-habits and the importance of regular physical activity. Also, our weekly PLAAY exercises will help us grow our audience and lead us to our grand-event, our 5th Annual “PLAAY DAY” on February 18, 2021 at 10am (AKST)!
Special thanks to the students at the UAA Department of Health, Physical Education & Recreation for helping develop and lead the sessions and to The Dome and Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium for their support!

Additionally, we are proud to announce that we have received a “formal endorsement” form the Alaska Chapter of The American Academy of Pediatricians as well as The American College of Sports Medicine. With their support, we hope to “increase our reach” to kids and families in Alaska and beyond regarding the absolute importance of consistent exercise and physical activity for ALL!

Stay tuned for updates and links provided to access our exercises in “real time” or at your convenience.

Additionally, we are in planning phase for our 2021 PLAAY SuMMit. The 2021 SuMMit will be a virtual/online event and we plan to release the schedule events by mid-December.

We are excited to announce these update and we hope you will join us to PLAAY! PLAAY is a program of the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame and works in partnership with the Healthy Futures Program. For more info visit www.plaay.org or www.healthyfuturesak.org
