|It’s that time of year again! We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our annual Summer Workshop for Education and Health Initiatives on July 19th at The River Center at Saluda Shoals Park in Columbia.
It will be a great opportunity for you to learn more about Unified Champion Schools, gain insight from other schools as well as participate in breakout sessions.
***NEW this year: We are very excited to be hosting a Unified Track & Field Round Table discussion as there will be opportunities to start this program in Spring 2018. Additionally, we will have the opportunity for individuals to become certified as a South Carolina Team Wellness Coach. Team Wellness is a new program that we will be starting and it encourages teams/groups to make healthy changes both nutritionally as well as physically. The Team Wellness program was started by Special Olympics Oregon and is a simple 8-week program that challenges athletes, partners and coaches to build lifelong healthful choices and habits. This program is ideal for High Schools. Space is limited for the Team Wellness training so if you need more information, contact Kara Harmon: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage you to pass this information along to your Athletic Directors, Track Coaches, and PE Teachers as well as other teachers that you know would be interested. It will be a great opportunity for many of these individuals to get a head start on the information prior to the start of the school year.
Individuals that attend the Summer Workshop for Education and Health can receive continuing education credit so make sure to register today!
