SPORTS CLASSES/VOLLEYBALL TEAM

SPRING 2024 SEMESTER SPORTS CLASSES, WOODWORKING, AVIATION SCIENCE CLASSES, MARKSMANSHIP, & VOLLEYBALL TEAM

The 2nd semester will start the week of Monday, January 29, 2024 for "Independent" classes, and go for 16 weeks, finishing the last full week of May, 2024.   This is for all classes Todd will teach that are independent of learning centers.  All classes taught at learning centers will follow the calendar of the learning center, see their website for that schedule.

1.  WOODWORKING

 

Todd will teach a SEMESTER LONG (16 weeks) Woodworking class in several locations.  Class length may be different at learning center locations - check their schedule for their semester length.  Students will be able to build a project of their choosing using all of the full-size power tools.  You can see pictures of some projects students have built in previous classes on the Woodworking page on this website.  See the page titled WOODWORKING to see pictures and get details.  Students all ages from 6 to 18 AND adults can take the class.  Younger students will get more guidance and oversight keeping them safe.  See the schedule below for the multiple sites for woodworking classes.  

COST: $460/student for the semester plus the cost of the wood they need for class at independent sites.  The cost will vary at learning centers based on the length of their semester and other particulars for each learning center.  See their website for the cost.  Make POs a single lump sum amount.

2.  AVIATION CAREERS CLASS

 

Todd will teach an Aviation CAREERS class in several sites in San Diego, Orange, and Riverside Counties.  The class will cover the wide variety of careers available in the aviation world.  We will talk about the amazing fast tracks available from the airlines now to get your students on their way to being an airline pilot that they can start right out of high school!  But there is much more to aviation careers than just being an airline pilot.  We will talk about aviation maintenance, aerospace engineering, air traffic control, airport operations, aircraft firefighting & rescue, military pilot, military enlisted jobs in aviation, and more.  We will have 4 great field trips to schools and facilities to let students see these career paths first-hand.  They will culminate with each student flying a small plane with an instructor pilot - yes, they will have the controls!  Sign up on the registration page for the Wednesday class in Escondido, or on the learning center website for learning center classes.  Contact Todd if you would like a class for your group.

COST: $460/student for the 16-week class.  Make POs a single lump sum amount.

3.  TACTICAL & OLYMPIC MARKSMANSHIP

Coach Nash will be offering a new class this year teaching Olympic Style Marksmanship using Airsoft pistol and Airsoft rifle.  Olympic Marksmanship will be taught at the Wednesday Escondido class.  Students will learn the basic concepts and techniques for marksmanship, Olympic style.  Student will learn body position, grip, breathing technique, trigger pull technique, and more.

All other sites will progress to the follow-on class, Tactical Marksmanship.  This will teach students fire and movement, firing from braced positions and concealed positions, shooting the rifle on automatic, even a biathlon with running and shooting!  It will be a fun class for your kids, and a good follow on to the Olympic Marksmanship class.

We will shoot from short ranges at small targets.  Airsoft uses plastic BBs with green gas as a propellant.  There are no explosives, no gunpowder, and the plastic BBs will not injure when used properly.

COST: $460/student for the 16 week class.

4.  VOLLEYBALL CLUB

Coach Nash will run a club volleyball club in Orange County on Tuesdays in San Juan Capistrano, across the street from the church where PC Prep meets.  The team is open to all home-schooled students regardless of charter school or independent status, grades 5-12, and will be broken down by age and ability, with separate teams for boys and girls.  We will practice each Tuesday 3:30-5:00 for 2nd semester.  Many other clubs can cost $600-$800/month and more.  This club will be the lowest cost club volleyball around, and your athletes will gain skills and have fun!   It is designed for both new players and players with some experience.  Click on the page VOLLEYBALL TEAMS to get all the details.  Click on SIGN UP to register for the Knights Volleyball Team for the fall.  We will start on January 23, 2024.  We will take off Feb 20 and Apr 2 for winter and spring breaks, finishing the spring session on May 21.   Practices will meet at Field across from church at 25975 Domingo Ave, Capo Beach

COST: $100/month/student for the 4 month season.  Make POs a single lump sum amount: $400 for the semester. 

5.  FUNDAMENTALS OF SPORTS (PE) CLASS

The spring semester will feature some great sports for your children to learn and repeat over and over.  We will start the semester with Track & Field events.  Students will learn the high jump, long jump, javelin, discus, shot put, sprinting mechanics, hurdling, and relays.  Then later in the spring, student will learn Foil Fencing!  They will spend some time with practice foils, then use the real fencing equipment for bouts with studnets their age and size.  We will mix in some recreational games throughout the semester. 

 

When students take a California Athletics class, each student works on individual skills the whole time, and equally with every other student.  We don't just throw out a ball and have them play large group games where the good athletes do everything and the new kids never touch the ball.  EVERY child works to develop their skills at their own level.  This class is ideal for your kids from age 5 to 18, regardless of how much experience they have.  ALL kids need to continue to develop their motor skills, coordination, and physical conditioning, whether they have no experience or a lot of experience.  We learn everything in life by repetition - let your kids repeat this class over and over!

 

Please remember, your students need to learn the basic skills on MANY different sports, whether they think they like them or not!  The sports we focus our effort on are MAINSTREAM sports, all of which should be experienced by kids at a PE level.  Let them choose the sports they play in a league based on what they like, but PE should not be optional for an 8 or 10 year old, or even a high schooler.  The state dept of education now requires PE of every student every year through high school graduation.  You don't let them decide to not learn subtraction because they think they don't like it.  It is an essential life skill, so they are REQUIRED to learn it!  The same applies to everything we will do in PE class.  Kids think they don't like it, only because they have no experience or skills in it.  Once they learn a little about the sport and gain some skills, they always enjoy it.  It doesn't matter if your child thinks they "like" baseball, they need to learn to throw!  It is a LIFE SKILL.  The same is true of dribbling a basketball, doing a good push-up, skipping, and hitting a volleyball.  These are essential motor skills kids need to learn and continue to develop, and they are directly linked to cognitive development.  Sign them up and make them participate!

 

COST: $260/student for cash/check or $260 for charter school PO for the 16-week semester class for independent classes not associated with a learning center, a real BARGAIN for a semester of quality instruction!  At Learning centers there are different prices based on the schedule and other particulars at each learning center.  See the learning center website for those prices, but make the POs as a lump sum payment for the semester.   Todd is a vendor with all of the SoCal charter schools who will pay, so you can get a PO for the class.  Please make the PO for a LUMP SUM SINGLE PO for $260 for the semester class.  The independent classes will go September - January.

SCHEDULE: The class will start the week of January 29, 2024, and go for 16 weeks through the week of May 27-31.  We will take off the weeks of Feb 19-23 for winter break, and the week of Apr 1-5 for spring break.

All classes will be taught in person by Todd Nash at each of the sites listed below.
