Fitness. Nutrition. Inclusion. Mindfulness.
Special Olympics Oregon is committed to keeping our athletes active, healthy, and engaged during this time that we are unable to offer sports training. SOOR Active an athlete-driven At Home Fitness Community focused on health and wellness resources for the Special Olympics Oregon community. Our goal is to provide a virtual platform where athletes, unified partners, volunteers, and family members can stay connected and active during a time when many may be feeling especially isolated. This group is for everyone! It is a safe space, rooted in inclusion, kindness, and positivity.
School of Strength
Special Olympics School of Strength is an interactive online platform that encourages athletes to participate in a fun and engaging training program that they can do in the comfort of their own homes. Developed in partnership with WWE superstar Becky Lynch, this series of videos, a fitness tracker, a coach’s playbook and a caregiver toolkit all contribute to helping athletes focus on nutrition and fitness and getting the most out of their workouts.
Strong Minds is an interactive learning activity focused on developing adaptive coping skills. Competition provides a natural opportunity to develop active strategies for maintaining emotional wellness under stress, such as: thinking positive thoughts, releasing stress and connecting with others.
See SOOR Active’s calendar for upcoming Social Hours and other opportunities to connect, socialize and have fun with other athletes!
