Special Olympics ALPs (Athlete Leadership Programs)

So this past weekend, I went to Fulton, Missouri, with my dad to attend to ALPs program, that Special Olympics Missouri offer. You might be asking what is ALPs...if you don't know what ALPs is, please allow me to explain it. Okay, so ALPs, stands for Athlete Leadership Programs. Not many states offer this program...or not I know of. So basically it is, like you can take classes for the whole weekend, (usually Friday-Sunday) Athlete Leadership Programs (ALPs) provides training for athletes who wish to expand their role in Special Olympics Missouri to much more than just on the field of competition. (it is also like going to college) My dad was my mentor this time. And I really appreciate it! To attend Alps, an athlete needs to have a mentor. This is my second time to participate in this program, and the class I took was Global Messenger II. That class is 8 hours.It was a long day, but I enjoyed the knowledge that class offered, my goal is to get better giving speeches about Special Olympics Missouri. I also enjoyed seeing some of my friends this past weekend, and meeting new people. If you are athlete in Special Olympics Missouri and want to know about this program, please PM me or visit this website . I really recommend this program! Here are some pic over the weekend! And my major is Technology, I really hope one day I can take pictures for them! That is my goal!

Bowling Tournament KC Metro at Lunar Bowl Blue Springs 11-4-17

Today was Special Olympics Missouri Bowling 🎳 Tournament!! I was glad my brother and I did not have to bowl until 1pm. When we got at the bowling alley, it was very crowded! It was so nice to see a lot of people out! Everyone did an awesome job!! My brother got gold!! So he’s going to state!! I’m so happy for him! I got 4th place, but I was really happy about my second score because I went over my average!! I was very proud about that! I made some mistakes and I know what I did wrong, I’m planning to work on it and try again next year! Basketball is up next! Woohoo!!🏀🏀🏀🏀 I saw some of my friends today and here is some pics below, please enjoy!
