September 2018: Butterfly, Core Strengthening & Core Values
We're off to sail the high seas with our pirate friends. We'll learn about Butterfly in the pool, Core Strength on the wall, and Core Values on the mat. You can download the take home page here.
We'll be strengthening the core and playing with the wave-like movement of butterfly. Some of the stigma of the "most difficult" stroke can be removed when introduced at a young age!! Fins may be used to increase momentum.
All students will work on age/level appropriate skills. Some of the things we will learn in order of difficulty are:
Climbers will be building core strength and learning about conditioning. Each class will cover age/level appropriate skills. Class time will be split between top rope, bouldering, and floor exercises.
Miss Becca is too lazy to update this Jelly :).
We're off to the jungle today! Kids will follow jungle vine routes on the climbing wall, practice alternating arms with zebras in the pool, and stretch like a giraffe on the mat.
4/26-5/9/15: Backstroke, Bedtime Yoga & Route Reading
Swimmers will be focusing on backstroke. Classes will look very different for a 2 yr old and an 8 yr old, but everyone will learn age/level appropriate skills.
Climbers will trek through the jungle as they follow taped routes, learn about climbing grades and communicate with partners.
The second portion of our "take yoga home" session will focus on bedtime routines. We'll get our energy out as stomping-sleeping hippos, focus with balance poses, and get grounded with supine poses.
August, September 2017: Kicks, Footwork, Toega
NO classes 8/19/17-9/9/17.
It's time to dive down deep! We're going on a deep sea adventure to stretch with the octopus and chill out with the sea turtles. We'll practice kicking in the pool, footwork on the wall, and massage our feet on the mat.
Climbers will be focusing on footwork. The majority of the class will be spent bouldering.
Some of the skills we will work on in order of difficulty are:
Yogis will be learning about teamwork, bravery, and friendship with the Pout Pout Fish (click the link for more pout pout activities for home).
2/8-2/21/16: Pushing Limits. I Can Do This!!
Don your cape and use your super powers to climb higher and swim farther than you thought you could! We'll use our breath to give us the courage and confidence to try our best even when it seems a bit scary.
Need to get your super powers ready before class? Here are some books you can read at home:
We will be working on pushing limits and being brave this week. Older swimmers will focus on endurance, and younger students will learn to swim longer distances independently. There will definitely be super hero games involved :).
Find out what our students are learning today.
