The 2nd semester will start the week of Tuesday, January 31, 2023 for Tuesday - Friday classes, and the week of Monday, February 6, 2023 for Monday classes, and go for 16 weeks, finishing the last week of January, 2023.  The spring semester will feature a wide variety of fun sports for your children to learn.  We will start the spring semester with soccer for a couple weeks, then basketball skills for a couple weeks, followed by Track & Field for 4-6 weeks, FENCING for 5-6 weeks, and a couple weeks of Road Tennis.  When we do sports instruction, each student has a ball in their hands the whole class, working on individual skills.  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 with the ball 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: $240/student for cash/check or $240 for charter school PO for the 16-week semester class for independent classes not associated with a learning center (ILA/PCP, etc), a real BARGAIN for a semester of quality instruction!  At Learning centers (ILA, PCP) the PE class is $260 for the semester as a lump sum payment.   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 $240 for the month of February or March.  The class will go February - May.

SCHEDULE: The class will start the week of January 31, 2023 and go through the end of May, 16 weeks of instruction.  



Todd will also teach a SEMESTER LONG (16 weeks) Woodworking class in several locations (Vista, San Clemente, Torrance, Temecula).  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: Woodworking class is $440/student for the semester plus the cost of the wood they need for class at independent sites, and $460/student at learning centers (ILA and PC Prep).



Todd will teach an Aviation Careers class in several sites; Orange County at a home site Tuesdays 12:00-1:30, in Temecula on Fridays 10:00-11:15, and possibly some other sites.  The class will cover many aviation careers including Air Traffic Control, Airport Operations, Aerospace Engineer, Aviation Mechanic, and the many pilot careers.  There will be field trips including a trip to an Aviation Mechanic School, Airport Operations, and flying an airplane with a certified flight instructor at a local airport!  There are pictures of the Aviation Class activities from last year as well as Todd's aviation background on the Aviation Page of this website.  Sign up on the registration page.  Contact Todd if you would like a class for your group.

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


Coach Nash will run a club volleyball teams in Orange County.  The team is open to all students regardless of school status, grades 6-12, and will be broken down by age and ability, with separate teams for boys and girls.  We will have two practices available each week in Orange County.  Practices will be outdoors in parks, keeping the cost down.  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!   Click on the page VOLLEYBALL TEAMS to get all the details.  Click on SIGN UP to register for the Knights Club Volleyball program for the spring.

Why take Sports Classes?

EVERY student should learn all of these sports to develop motor skills, coordination, conditioning, strength, and learn about the sports.  These sports are all part of the state of California's requirement for PE.  All classes will include some physical conditioning.  It is my goal that your children both learn some skills and gain strength and fitness.

Often parents avoid a particular sports class because their child "doesn't like that sport".  That is a good reason to not sign them up for a competitive team in that sport, but they should still learn the basic skills in all sports at a PE level.  If our children didn't like doing subtraction we would not allow them to skip subtraction!  We make those decisions for them because we know what they need.  All kids should learn to throw a ball properly, dribble a basketball, hit a volleyball, and develop from all of the sports in these classes.
