Other ways to keep in touch

Here are some other ideas for keeping in touch with each other:

Start a phone tree: A phone tree is a great way to make sure you get to talk to someone every day! Write a list of a people and their phone numbers who would like to join your phone tree. Share the list with the group. The first person on the list phones the second person. The second phones the third and so on. 

Get in touch with your coach or club chair: Even when we aren’t at training, we can still keep in touch with our sports teams. Reach out to your coach and see how they’re doing! They’ll also be able to help you get in touch with the other members of your team. 

Contact your Regional Sports Coordinator or other member of the Special Olympics New Zealand staff: All SONZ staff are still working from home. We love hearing from you, so feel free to reach out if you want to chat or have any questions. You can find all our contact details on the Staff page.

Start a WhatsApp group: You can download WhatsApp to your phone and start a group chat with your sports team and other friends you have met through Special Olympics. 

Using Zoom for a video hui (meeting)

Zoom is one of many great tools available for holding a hui (meeting) when we can’t catch up in the same room.

You can set up your own zoom account if you like, or get in touch if you would like us to set up a hui for you using the Special Olympics New Zealand account.

Check out our guide for more information on using Zoom.
