COVID-19 Stay at Home Activities
Students and faculty are invited to post a video of themselves, family members, or roommates doing any type of trick shot from any sport to their social media account and tag BYUI Sports’ Facebook or Instagram. Tagged videos will be posted on the Sports’ social media sites. Two winning videos will be chosen each week through Spring semester.
Students and faculty are invited to post videos of how they’ve recreated and participated in sports during social distancing to their social media account and tag BYUI Sports’ Facebook or Instagram. Everyone who posts a video and tags BYUI Sports each week will be entered into a drawing. There will be two drawings each week from now until the social distancing guidelines are lifted.
Participate in the weekly Sports Trivia challenge on Facebook or Instagram. Questions will include sports movie trivia, you make the call (charge or a block), BYU-Idaho sports questions, and more. Participants who take the quizzes will be selected randomly for a prize. There will also be a random drawing for those with top scores.
2020 Spring Get Outside Challenge
The outdoors can calm the mind, heart, and spirit. If you are studying remotely this spring and want to take part in the Outdoor Program, join us for the Spring Semester Get Outside Challenge.
How do I join the challenge?
It’s simple, get outside wherever you are at least 3 hours a week for the entire semester and engage in an activity. These three hours can be broken up into however many days you would like per week. Once you submit the completion of your first activity you will be officially entered and receive email updates.
What’s in it for you?
We hope that all participants will have reduced stress, reduced anxiety, better physical and emotional wellness, and a whole lot of fun. All participants will receive a free BYU Idaho Outdoor Activity sticker. Weekly and monthly prizes will be awarded through a drawing. Winners will be notified via email.
In order to enter the weekly drawing, you must have completed a minimum of 3 hours outside. (3 hours=1 entry, 6 hours=2 entries)
To enter the monthly drawing you must have a minimum of 12 hours outside for the month.
Additionally, all participants who complete the entire challenge (3 hours a week or 33 hours=1 entry) are entered to win one grand prize drawing. The drawing will take place during the finals week of Spring Semester 2020.
How do I report my progress?
Every 3 hours you spend outside counts for one entry per week. You will record your progress each time you participate in an outdoor activity by following this link. At the end of each week, all participants will be emailed a record of their progress in relation to other competitors.
What types of activities can I do?
Some suggestions might include the following.
- Hiking / Walking
- Mt. Biking
- Stand up paddleboarding
- Bird Watching
- Rock Climbing
- Climb a peak
- Gathering berries
- You can also do other things that may not be on this list.
What about safety?
Remember, safety is a top priority with all outdoor activities. If you don’t have the skills to do a certain activity, then seek qualified instruction.
How much will it cost me?
Absolutely nothing, it is free.
