When you join the chess club, you will learn how the pieces move, special moves like check, checkmate, and castling, strategies for how to begin a game, how to win a game, and how to have fun doing all of this! Chess will help you to learn how to think better, and just may make you smarter! You will get to play chess with the other club members, and study real life games and work on chess puzzles. You can even play in tournaments!

Little shredders have to start somewhere! Once you have mastered the art of riding on 2 wheels we can start perfecting the art of mountain biking. Join us in building skills and challenging our comfort zones. We will play biking games, watch motivational videos of kid riders and ride the beginner loop of our pump track. If your skills progression checks out, you will be riding our trails in no time.
***Riders must be able to ride a bike without training wheels, and bring their own bike and helmet.

Come join this growing sport! Unfortunately, the league we participate in has decided to only operate in the Spring session this year. We'll take it as an opportunity to have more a teaching-based session this Fall. We're going to be practicing our flicks, backhands and hammers oh my! We will review plays and strategy, and put it to practice in scrimmages. Learn the rules, master the techniques. Grab a disc & head to the field!

In this program we’ll explore the concept of balance through slacklining! Slacklining is something that everyone can learn to do – you don’t need to be a high performing athlete or a crazy circus person to learn how to balance. If you can walk you can balance, and if you can balance you can slackline. Each student will receive their own Slackline Skill Progression Guide at the start of class, and will be able to set their own goals for learning 25+ tricks with guidance & instruction from professional slackline instructors. Along with those slackline skills, we’ll also learn techniques for quieting the mind, cultivating one-pointed focus, and bringing balance into other aspects of your life.
Learn new skills, make new friends, and have fun while doing it!
Improve your balance - physically, mentally, & emotionally
Enhance your focus, concentration, & body awareness
Build confidence & learn goal-setting strategies
Great cross training for student athletes
