what is the step into spring challenge 2021?

An action packed eight (8) week virtual challenge where hundreds of Special Olympics Athletes throughout Newfoundland and Labrador will come together virtually and from the comfort of their home, to train and showcase how they are are working hard to Stay Healthy, Stay Connected, Be Active and Be Prepared!  All athletes who register will receive a STEP into SPRING Challenge Kit! 

Athletes will try activities in four (4) categories throughout the challenge.  They will also have an opportunity to compete as a community club if they choose.

 

how does it work?

Athletes will receive a STEP into SPRING Book which will have the following;

Weekly Physical Activity Tracker Sheets

Bingo Cards & STEP Challenge Cards

Athletes select their Physical Activity Level and aim to reach that goal each week throughout the challenge.  Athletes can also try a variety of other activities through Bingo Cards and STEP Challenge Cards to earn points and further challenge themselves if they choose. 

 

How to earn points?

Weekly Physical Activity Challenge - Each week an athlete reaches their goal they earn 100 Points

Bingo Cards - Each square an athletes tries, in any pattern, is 2 Points (Maximum of 50 Points per card)

STEP Challenge Card - Each section on the card an athlete tries is 25 Points (Maximum of 50 Points per Challenge Card)

Every 2nd Sunday, Athletes or their caregivers will complete the POINTS COLLECTION FORM to submit the points they have earned during that time!  If an athlete does not wish to report their points, that is absolutely okay!

All athletes who participant will receive a Custom Special Olympics NL Coin!
