A lack of social opportunities and activities at the middle and high school levels for homeschoolers has led many students back to school buildings, but this has begun to change. There is more social time built into the structure of the HomeSchool Gym for older students. Because they are often already familiar with the games, the kids’ interests may lead the way, but the instructor keeps them moving.
The list of classes here is not exhaustive. The HomeSchool Gym instructors may offer a wide variety of sports and activities depending on teaching style and experience of the young people in class. Classes MAY include any of the following:
This class focuses on dribbling, passing and kicking skills as well as advance tactical ability (game strategies) in game play. We use drills that have been developed into fun modified games that improve skill as well as tactical knowledge of soccer.
Similar in approach as the Gym Jam for younger children, this class utilizes fun and engaging games in a group setting to get young ones moving. The highly active and educational games included in this class will give students the confidence and skills for a lifetime of health and fitness.
