Fitness

Fitness is probably one of the most important determiners of a person's general well-being. Students are introduced to both new and traditional ways to stay active and fit, learning skills that will stay with them for a lifetime. Our fitness classes embrace the whole student, helping each student develop and maintain healthy habits which will improve their immune systems, give them more energy, and help create a positive outlook on life.
Active Fun & Games 6-8 Gym
Teacher: Dan Vickers
Outside Work: Minimal
Ages: 6 - 8
1.25 Hour Class; 1 day/week

This class will combine sports; new & unusual games; co-operative games; fitness components (for example, every class will include a warm-up, cardio work & stretching); team building & promoting self esteem; and having fun while being physically active!

Basketball! 11-13 Gym
Teacher: Dr. David Stark
Outside Work: Minimal
Ages: 11 - 13
1.25 Hour Class; 1 day/week
Yearly Materials Fee : $35.00
The game of basketball, sometimes referred to as Hoopin', was invented in 1891 by Dr. James Naismith. Sure, it's fun to play, but many people never consider the uniqueness of its flow and fluidity. And, yes, it helps if you're quick or tall, but the sport is really about form, positioning, and angles-- much like a dance. In fact, they call the NCAA National Tournament "The Big Dance" for a reason. In this class students will learn about the history and currency of basketball, its growing status as an international sport, basketball as a business, as well as some of the fundamentals of individual skills and playing as a team. Because playing basketball draws on a range of movements and motions, there will be opportunity for participants to experience how much "crossover" there is to be applied between it and other sports and games by playing those too from time to time. An extensive catalog of basketball drills, challenges, and gaming scenarios will be utilized into our approach to each session. Students will need to be dressed for physical activity for each class. Want to work on some personal fitness? Want to know more about the greatest sport ever? (Ok, the instructor--a former All-State and All-American--is admittedly partial!) Want to develop your skills as a basketball player? Then this class is for you...

Beginning Fencing 8+ Rm # Gym
Teacher: Kim Miller
Outside Work: Minimal
Ages: 8 and up
1.25 Hour Class; 1 day/week
Yearly Materials Fee : $25.00
Students are taught to focus on the joy of self- improvement and to "forget
about winning". They learn to appreciate the contribution of others, value
what they have to offer, how to enjoy the process of self-improvement, and
get a great work-out as well! Students also learn how to deal with
frustration, control anger and remain cool under pressure. Fencing improves
hand-eye coordination, balance, timing, strength, and reflex management. But
the best part is... it's a lot of fun!

This class is structured to give someone who has never fenced before a good
idea of what the sport is about and is intended to familiarize the student
with the equipment and the basics of the sport.

Students will be required to purchase their own fencing equipment. Details
and assistance will be provided by the instructor at the beginning of the
year.
