Athletes, coaches, family, & friends be sure to check out our new and exciting Sports Zone before, in-between, and after competitions. The Sports Zone will be located at Binder Sports Complex from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28.

The SOMO Sports Zone will feature the following:

     - Cool down (foam rolling, & relaxation area to visit during any down time you may have)
     - Nutrition Station (come grab a healthy snack to fuel up before, in between, and/or after competitions, grab some educational information on healthy snacking & recipes to go too!)
     - Hydration (led by your fellow athlete & Health Messenger Lynn Shuffet. Lynn will talk about the importance drinking water and provide different ways to flavor that water!)
     - Relax (need to chill out for a bit? Come do some meditative coloring, unwind with some of our sound machines, and walk away with some new relaxation tips and tricks to take home)
     - SMART goals (have you been wanting to achieve something but may just not know how to create a plan to get there? Stop by our SMART goal table and learn how to create a goal and steps to achieve it with our local unified schools student council team!)
