Starting March 1st
Coach Matt will help organize games that are fun to play. You'll develop your skills, work on overall athletic movements, and compete with friends!
All-SportsI'm an athlete!
Each week you'll play a different game. You can vote if we play basketball, soccer, kickball, or flag football first!
Learn how to take a great photo using your digital camera or a cell phone! Coach Matt uses a role-playing technique to help young photographers get into the right mindset.
Game DesignIt's a me...Coach Mario!
Be a creator, not just a consumer! Coach Matt will introduce you to the world of video game design. You will make a game each week!
Web DesignLet's Code!
Learn how to make your own website! What will you put on it? Learning how to actually code could open so many doors for you.
Coach Matt's favorite class ever! This will be so much fun to play around and make scenes together. Sign up for 8 and he'll host a show for you to perform!
The We Not Me model...
...is to learn together and work together. The importance of having a community and a sense of belonging can not be overstated. Having a tribe, any tribe, is life-affirming, a core need of all people, and an excellent way to learn.
Cohorts of 6-12 kids help bring the energy of a group while remaining small enough to receive individual attention.
Coach Matt taught gifted education at The Grayson School where the class sizes were usually less than 10. It's a shame that this isn't available to students of all abilities. Everyone wins in smaller-sized classrooms.
Over the years Matt has studied each of these courses offered. It's his favorite way to spend his time and he thinks it's a great path for any young person to head down. With his Masters of Education, 15 years of teaching, and interdisciplinary approach to learning, Matt is uniquely qualified to provide meaningful experiences that connect many of life's lessons.
How many: Approx. 6-12 kids. Age will be suggested in course descriptions.
How are cohorts formed: You come to me with a fully formed group.
When: Starting March 1st. Let's meet around your schedule! So...TBD.
How often: 4-6 sessions are usually the minimum for a course.
How much: $24.99 per kid per session
Where: Depends on the course. It'll say in the course description.
Why: I asked myself that big question: "If money was no object, how would I spend my days?" My answer: Teaching people my favorite things.
Is this only for teams who played in the winter league?
Of course not! This is open to everyone.
Do we have to keep the team together from the basketball league?
Certainly not. These groups do work best when they are of similar ages. But, you can mix and match any group of kids together for Courses.
Is Coach Matt the only instructor?
For right now, yes. I am collecting an all-star cast of coaches as we speak, though. We are creating those courses together and hope to roll them out in the Spring.
What courses might you offer in the future?
Softball pitching, Strength and Conditioning, Social Media for Athletes, Reading Tutoring, and more...
Are these courses just for kids?
Great question! For now, yes. Eventually, we will be offering classes for all ages. I'm excited by what's in development for our adulting classes. Stay tuned :)
