World of Sports: Skillz Clinic

Woodshop teacher and elementary student working together

Wednesdays (8 Weeks) 

      January 25 – March 22 (No class February 22)

Instructor: Jonah Lounds (Aurora Alum, Former Summer Camp Counselor, and Sporty Guy!)

Students will participate in a sampling of team sports (basketball, football, ultimate frisbee,  soccer, and maybe more!) and build their skill set and knowledge of each, culminating in full (somewhat competitive) scrimmages. In each lesson, skills associated with team play will be prioritized over individual achievement, and full group participation will be massively encouraged. While we can’t do every sport, students will help choose those that we focus on, and we’ll approach them in an age appropriate way. Third grade students can choose to sign up for either the younger or older session, and those in the older (later) session can choose to stay in the regular after care program for the hour before class begins, or head home and come back by 3:15.

Cost: $175

Minimum 4 students, maximum 12 students

Grades K-3: 2:15–3:15 pm

Grades 3-7: 3:15 – 4:15 pm

WINTER SESSION: Online registration opens January 4 at NOON!

Registration

All registrations are done ONLINE only. Registration opens WEDNESDAY, January 4 at noon.

Classes will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, until the maximum number of students for each is reached. A wait list will be created if a class fills. If any enrolled child decides to drop out, families on the wait list will be notified by the second class of the session. If your child is enrolled and decides after the first class that they do not wish to participate, you will receive a refund or credit for 75% of the remaining class tuition. You must inform the Extended Care Director before the second class to receive this refund. No refunds are available after the second class of the session.

If the minimum number for a particular class is not reached by Wednesday, January 18, 2023 at noon, the class will be cancelled.

Classes start the week of January 23, 2023.  See the class descriptions for specific start and end dates, and for any days class will not be held.

Please make sure to sign out your child even if they are just attending for the enrichment class. You are not charged for time while in the enrichment class, but signing out is essential for us to know who is here after school and who is already picked up. Failure to sign out will result in you being charged for the full day (until 6pm) The normal hourly rate will apply for time in after care past the class end time (more than 15 min).
