T.R.A.I.N.

Have you heard of T.R.A.I.N.?  If not, you will now!  T.R.A.I.N. stands for Testing Recreational Activities and Improving Nutrition.

It is a “sports assessment and nutrition education program designed to help athletes stay active, stay healthy, and achieve their personal best…” (specialolympics.org).  The assessment features different stations such as the shuttle run, walk the line, dining detective, and the 3-minute step test, to name a few.

Special Olympics Louisiana will conduct at least three more T.R.A.I.N. events by years end.  One of those will be at State Fall Classic this October!
