Ideas!  Some chapters have shared some SUPER fun ideas. Here are a few to kick start your creativity.

  1. Bring your country flag and fly it at the front of the room.
  2. Have your education coordinator run in with an (unlit) Olympic torch to get everyone fired up and give an education moment about the rules of the game (see above) so everyone knows their part.
  3. Divide your members into teams. (track and field, tennis, gymnastics, swim team etc)
  4. Let members choose an athlete from the country they represent. Create an Olympic table top for each member reflecting which country/athlete they are.
  5. Vice President Report becomes the Olympic Games Report. Update your members on your chapters progress
