Fundamentals of Sports Classes will be offered throughout the school year covering the fundamental skills of many different sports for students ages 5 through 18. Classes will be offered in many different sites all over southern California. These classes are good for students of all ages and skill levels.
There will be 4 different classes for the 2019-2020 school year. Todd is completing the fall volleyball class before Thanksgiving.
Starting the week after Thanksgiving, on December 2, 2019, Todd will teach an 8 week SOCCER & FOOTBALL CLASS. This will be a FUN class for your kids of all ages! Open to kids ages 5-18, students will learn all the basic skills in soccer, preparing them for a lifetime of recreational soccer - one of the most common recreational sports in America. Todd has all sizes of soccer balls for all ages, enabling students to learn the skills with a ball appropriate to their size and strength. Every student should learn the soccer skills, not just to play soccer, but to develop motor skills, foot coordination, conditioning, and much more. We will spend 6 weeks learning "Futbol" (Soccer) skills, and then spend 2 weeks teaching basic "Football" (American football) skills! Students will learn the basics of passing, receiving, kicking, and punting the football. Nobody will be tackled! To REGISTER for the SOCCER class, click on SIGN UP above.
In the second semester, Todd will likely teach a series of classes including Track & Field, pickleball, and some fencing.
The cost of each of the Fundamentals of Sports classes is $100/student for check/cash, $105 for a charter school PO for the entire 8 week class. This is a bargain for quality instruction! High quality instruction in any sport from a qualified coach typically costs hundreds of dollars a month.

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.
