Chief Movement Officer Workshop

Do you have inventive movement ideas that you want to share? Do you have the ability to motivate students and teachers alike? Do you have a passion for the health of our students? If you answered yes to these questions, then the Chief Movement Officer (CMO) Workshop is for you! Attendees will develop, implement and evaluate innovative movement activities specific for their locale, peers and students. In addition to becoming a certified CMO, participants will design project-based challenges to change the culture of movement within their school and/or school divisions. Future incentives ($$$) can be earned for creating innovative movement activities, leading staff development opportunities, and sharing student-centered movement opportunities within your school or division. If you ever dreamed about being an "Edupreneur," now is the time to move!
