I use to think Golf was a game for my grandpa and his friends. I was wrong. By age 18 I fell in love with this game, which is the hardest game I've evered played. With that said, it's fun, rewarding, and anyone can do it. We'll learn the basics of the swing and you'll be in awe as you watch your ball sail in the sky for a few seconds.
I fell in love with tennis when my brother and I got beat in our first doubles match. We didn't even know how to keep score but what the other team did with the ball (slice serves, drop shots, overhead smashes) is something I wanted to learn real bad. This game is about fun, competiton, and having all the strokes, which we'll learn in class. Tennis is a lifelong activity. And yes, we'll have a singles and doubles tournament.
Throwing, Catching, Dribbling, Passing
The foundation of many activites people compete in is based on some form of throwing & catching, dribbling and passing. We will will break down the biomechanics of throwing and catching and practice in a variety of activites that utilize these key skills. At the end of the day you'll probably be told to stop throwing the bread at the dinner table when someone asks for a dinner roll :)
Our climbing walls were created after we recognized a need, as a department, to create activities that would help develop upper body strength. Bouldering is a wonderful complete body workout. But, beyond improving strength, endurance, and flexibility you will enhance your 'inner strength' by not giving up and persevering through the challenges each rock wall presents.
