What is the Playout Obstacle Course Racing Professional Development?

PlayOut Obstacle Course Races for PE:

Want to bring American Ninja Warrior, Spartan Race, and Tough Mudder to your PE Classroom? Created by Professional Obstacle Course Racer and NSCA-CPT Eddie Kovel, the Playout Obstacle Course Race (OCR) Professional Development Program empowers PE teachers to create fun, high-intensity Obstacle Course Races (OCRs) for their students using classroom equipment.
As part of their professional development, teachers will receive Playout: The OCR Training Card Game, a fitness card game that contains sport-specific exercises that simulate what it feels like to run through the various terrain and obstacles found in a mud run or OCR. No mud, fire, and barbed-wire required! Teachers will learn how to set up obstacle courses, play a variety of different games and team-building activities with their courses and cards, and host field days and community-wide competitions to fundraise for their school.

Each participant is asked to bring a piece of equipment from their classroom that they'd like to add to the obstacle course. For example: hula hoops, basketballs, speed stacking cups, cornhole, etc.  Please note: If you bring equipment such as basketballs or cups please make sure to bring enough for 3-4 people to use at once.
