TriColumbia & Alive with MissionMe!® Partnership Learn2Tri  in-service teacher training and staff development will be held on April 26th in Howard County, MD and April 27th in Dorchester County, MD.

Howard County School District will send representatives from four elementary schools, five middle schools and four high schools. Dorchester County (Cambridge, MD) will send representatives from seven elementary schools and six high schools.

Dr. Duston Morris, Senior Vice President and Clinic Director of Alive with MissionMe!®, with over 15 years of experience in health, fitness and recreation, will be on hand to work with TriColumbia as we integrate the Alive with MissionMe!® curriculum into the Learn2Tri program in Howard County and Dorchester County Schools.

TriColumbia and Alive with MissionMe!® have partnered to provide physical education teachers with the training and resources to successfully teach multisport  activities (swim, bike, run).

Alive with MissionMe!® will offer two one-day in-service and staff development programs for physical education specialists, teachers, coaches, recreation center staff and parents. The Alive with MissionMe!® series is unique, founded on a nontraditional method of teaching designed to meet the changing needs of today’s students through multisport activities. Practical and solid instruction will include how to apply NASPE’s six National Standards and USA Triathlon’s athlete-appropriate competencies using swimming, biking and running in an elementary and high school setting. Instruction includes using activities at varying intensity levels appropriate for each student’s individual needs. Heart rate monitors, pedometers and rate of perceived exertion are used to track intensity and to assess physical fitness progress. Equipment demonstrations include use of bikes and bike trainers along with fitness balls, stretch bands, and medicine balls.
