By Katy Lido

Speed. Power. Agility. Balance. Coordination. These athletic skills, among others, were easy to spot when athletes stepped into the rinks at the Special Olympics New Jersey 2013 State Floor Hockey Tournament this past weekend. But for the first time at this tournament, athletes had the opportunity to continue to work on those same skills even when they stepped out of the rink thanks to the Special Olympics TRAIN program. TRAIN stands for Testing Recreational Activities and Improving Nutrition and, according to the TRAIN website, is designed to be “a fun way for athletes to test their physical skills, discover new sports to play, and learn about exercise and nutrition.” Read the rest of this story at the link below.
