August 15: Unveiling the New SOI Fitness App – SO FitNow

Special Olympics Indiana is one of the first US programs to offer Special Olympics International’s new SO FitNow fitness app. Athlete leaders will learn about the new app features, how to create an account, how to track progress and goals, and how to navigate the system. Athlete leaders also will discuss how to recruit friends and teammates to join. Finally, they will help SOIN brainstorm future virtual fitness challenges.

Participants in this webinar will get the first chance to try out this new technology, but you must sign up for a free SO FitNow account first! Sign up as an individual or register a group by August 13th.

August 29: ALPs University Focus Group

With ALPs University’s fall semester going online, athlete leaders will join us in testing new activities that are part of Special Olympics International’s new curriculum. Whether an athlete leader is taking “Introduction to Athlete Leadership” or “Understanding Leadership” in October, their input will guide us in creating the new online format. Athlete leaders – help us make ALPs University even better!

September 12: Topic TBD
