2. What's Up With the Websites

We're still looking at a late January launch date for PE Update. Things are coming together and we're adding content at a rapid rate.

We've taped some excellent footage of Shawn Charron, an athletic trainer with the Laurentian University athletic department, demonstrating an innovative massage technique called Soft Tissue Release. It's easy, it's extremely effective and it's best demonstrated via video rather than merely described in an article. This video
should be ready for you by PE Update's launch date.

Remember, all subscribers to PE Digest will receive free access to PE Update!

    6. Pick of the Week

    Each week, I'll highlight an article that I think is really useful. The article will be available to non-members of the website for a week, and to members forever!

    This week's pick is: "Intramurals Survey"

    If you want to develop a vibrant intramural program, it's best to offer activities that your students really want to play. An intramural survey can help you determine what those activities are. This article describes how to implement a student survey and provides a reproducible questionnaire you can use.
