Wednesday: JB Multi-Sport

Students learn something new each and every week, and not just the same team sports! These multi-sport classes offer a high level, fun introduction to a new sport or fitness activity each week and with over 70 different lesson plans, there is something for everyone. The rules and skills of each activity are introduced through hands-on exercises, so kids begin playing and improving right away. We keep it fun, but at these ages, children appreciate a bit of competition too. The goals are to help make every student comfortable trying new sports, to give them a basic understanding of popular sports, and to help them appreciate the fun and rewards of regular physical activity. Classes are held at Shaw Montessori for grades K-4 every Wednesday from 1:45-2:35. See class flyer for additional information.  Signup online at GYM when hot.
