We have decided to cancel the 2023 PLAAY SuMMit which was scheduled for February 17 and 18th.
There were significant changes and necessary adjustments to the Anchorage School District Calendar in response to the numerous missed-school days in December. Cancelling the SuMMit was a difficult decision, but it was the right decision. We are discussing the potential for developing an online course, but we will need to further investigate if that is a viable option towards the end of the year.
The PLAAY Summit provides teachers, social workers, coaches, medical professionals, administrators, parents and other leaders of youth with a conference to address the multi-factorial areas of adolescent health with emphasis on the importance of physical activity.
“The PLAAY Summit breathes life into my daily routine as a Health & Physical Education specialist. It’s a room full of expert enthusiasts chasing the dream – improving lives with play and knowledge!” – Eric Heil, former SHAPE Teacher of the Year.
