Cooking 101
Cooking is a skill that everyone needs, and once you learn the basics there is no end to what you will be able to prepare! This class will introduce youth to the basics of food preparation: using measuring cups, kitchen safety, cooking terms, planning nutritious meals, and high altitude modifications (which is especially helpful for us!). Each week we will focus on a different skill: healthy and delicious snacks (week 1), main courses and side dishes (week 2) and desserts (week 3)

Jiu Jitsu and Open Mat
Jiu Jitsu Basics and Open Mat is an hour long class that seeks to teach basic grappling positioning and submissions for the first half of class. The second half of class will be open mat time, during which you are free to grapple with other students, or work on something of your own choosing. We will mostly practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, but some grappling/throwing techniques from Karate may also be incorporated. This class has a relaxed and fun atmosphere. A Gi (uniform) is not necessary.
Tae Kwon Do
Little Tigers- Martial Arts

The focus of this class is to familiarize children with the martial arts that we teach, while helping them to build a strong foundation for them to work from should they choose to pursue martial arts into adulthood. Students will learn basic techniques, and the fundamentals of self-defense. Additionally, we teach about common dangers or threats such as dealing with strangers or what to do if one were to get lost. We keep our students engaged by incorporating games and other fun activities into our training.

Martial Arts
In this class, Kyokushin Karate will be our primary focus, with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu being blended into our training in order to provide a well-rounded self-defense system. Additionally, you will learn a few throws and takedowns which are taken from Judo and Wrestling. We will practice Kihon (basics) Kata (forms) and Kumite (sparring). Strength, conditioning, and overall fitness is another significant aspect of this class. In addition to learning how to effectively defend yourself, you will become much stronger both physically and mentally.

Open Gym
Open gym play for youth in grades 6-8 at Darren Patterson (518 S. San Juan Ave.) . We will not have coaches- this is a time to warm up and play around during the winter before spring sports begin. This will be happening on Thursdays (through March 9) from 5:30-7:00pm. Cost is $2 per child per visit, and tennis shoes are required.
Open Gym Volleyball
Anyone is welcome to come play- all levels and knowledge of the game can find a place with us. Join in at any time- it’s a great way to learn more skills and rules! These fun nights will definitely help get you warmed up for great league play come March! Check back to this page for any updates on weeks we are unable to play due to poor weather or other conditions.
Parent/Tot Swim

This time will allow parents and tots some time in the water at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort! There will be no instructor, but it will be an informal time to get in the pool, meet other parents/tots, and get out of the house!
This game mixes badminton, tennis, and ping pong skills creating a fun, active, low-impact environment for individuals of all ages and athletic background! No experience necessary, we’ll teach you when you show up. It’s easy to learn and you won’t regret it- it’s a blast!

A combination of Pilates and Yoga, this new activity will help you stretch and strengthen your entire body! PiYo allows you to move at a decent tempo from one pose to another!
