Mark your calendars for February 24th, 2022

PLAAY Day 2022 will begin at 8 AM Alaska Standard Time as we begin our first PLAAY session in coordination with groups around the country! PLAAY Sessions will each last 30 minutes and be repeated every hour on top of the hour. Join us as we begin the exciting-challenge of connecting time zones around the “world’s first shared-exercise experience”
The World Needs PLAAY

Happy February 16th and Welcome to PLAAY

We are officially 1 week out from our 6th annual PLAAY Day! We have been working hard to coordinate our PLAAY Leaders with each of the six remote sites. We are very excited to meet new faces and develop new relationships with PLAAY Day! Please encourage schools/classrooms/correspondence programs or others to register and join. This year, we are honored to have United States Congressman Don Young say a few words and kick off the 12pm PLAAY Day session for Alaska! Following at 1pm, we are honored to have United States Senator Lisa Murkowski kick off the Hawaii Session!  We are “The United States of PLAAY” and we can’t wait to have you join in the fun!

Happy January 18th and Welcome to PLAAY

We wanted to provide some updates on our homepage as we have made a final decision of our planning and logistics for a PLAAY Day 2022. Instead of the usual “one-time event” at 12 PM Alaska standard time, PLAAY Day will begin at 8 AM Alaska Standard Time (AST) on Thursday February 24th which corresponds to 12 PM East Standard Time (EST). As we continue to reach our goal of worldwide participation for PLAAY24, our 2022 version will begin with 6-Live-PLAAY exercises sessions with our first session beginning at 12 PM EST. After our East Coast event we will shift to 12 PM Central Standard Time (CST). We will continue to repeat this cycle so “every hour on the hour” we will participate and connect with each of the United States time zones! Our last and final session will be at 12 PM Hawaii time. We have partnered with schools in each of the aforementioned 6 time zones and will have a chance to talk to each location briefly before and after each PLAAY exercise session. As of today’s writing, we are 37 days away from PLAAY Day 2022. We hope you sign-up your school or classroom to officially get registered for PLAAY Day!

In other news, we are fortunate to continue the great relationship with UAA’s Department of Kinesiology and have another outstanding intern for PLAAY 2021-2022. Also, we have our first graduate intern from UAA’s Master’s Program in Public Health. Lastly, and just as excitingly, we are planning to have our first PLAAY High School Intern beginning formally in the Fall of 2022!
