Do you have a 13-15 year old? We're creating a group for teens to gather virtually, chat, play games, and generally socialize during COVID times. We're asking parents to join for the initial call so we can all be on the same page with expectations. From here on out, the kids will set the agenda. This call happens every Tuesday and Thursday at 8PM. We are using Google Meet, spend a few minutes downloading it if you haven't used it already.
Claire McNamara Blue is facilitating the discussions.
It's time to run! Join us twice a week for Cross Country. We'll rotate between Lafreniere and City park and use band to communicate. If you have any questions, let me know. We need 12 runners at $100 to cover the coaches fees for the semester. He's given us a great deal and we're thrilled to assist in setting this up for you! This isn't limited to homeschool students, just members of NOLA Homeschoolers. If you have one child that attends school, they can still join us. If your child has an interested friend, they're welcome to join us as well after becoming a member of the group. Details on where to meet will be sent with the reminder 3 days before class!
Coach Jim spent most of his life as a radio executive, but the last 3 as a personal trainer and coach. He's finished dozens of races and 23 marathon or ultra marathon events. He also spent the last year working with the First Tee Golf Program as an assistant coach, so he have some experience with kids (He's also a father of two!).
Lafraniere Park as a 2 mile track and some fields that would be useful. City Park would work as well. 2 days a week (with some prescribed runs/workouts) for the kids to do on their own would get them the experience that your looking for.
