Due to cold weather we will stop running club until after the new year begins. Late January or early February we will look at starting up again. We need volunteers to help. You don’t have to be a runner to help. We need help with checking kids in and to lead stretching and running / tagging games. If you can volunteer please contact me at email@example.com
The kids have been very excited to have a basketball unit in physical education. With the new nets hung outside and kids teams starting to play games on the weekends the time is right.
The kids are working on shooting skills. Learning that the power come from their legs to get that ball all the way to the top of the rim. Here is a video that explains a little more about what to tell kids to help them develop the mechanics of shooting.
Many of you are coaches and have ideas you would like to share with me please contact me. I would love to share resources. firstname.lastname@example.org
