While SLO Classical Academy and High School’s focus has not been in the area of athletics during these first years, we do believe that athletics can play a vital role in a student’s education by teaching the student the values of self-discipline, commitment, teamwork, self-control, setting and achieving goals, perseverance, fellowship, loyalty, and cooperation. We also believe in starting with life-long sports, so that athletics develop into a natural part of our students’ lives. Because of these beliefs, we are working to increase our athletic opportunities each year.

 

Each year, we offer a variety of enrichment opportunities related to the area of fitness - after school P.E. classes, mid-week fitness enrichment and Friday Academy Classes, which have included Taekwondo, Capoiera, fencing, and dance. This year we were accepted into CIF for our high school and started many middle school teams.

Parent Volunteer Hours!!

If you would like volunteer hours you can join a parent team! To join a team, please email David Hazlebeck at athletics@sloclassical.org

 

Parent Teams Include…

 

Coaching Team: 2015-16 coaches. If you would like to be a coach, please include the sport you would like to help coach and whether you would like to be the head or assistant coach (the exception is flag football which needs an offensive and defensive coordinator in addition to an assistant coach).

 

Maintenance Team: This team will be in charge of preparing fields and equipment at the beginning of the season and set up and take down fields on game days. This includes chalking fields, setting up the stands, and making sure all the balls are ready to be used.

 

General Athletics Team: Want to help but don’t know how? This is the team for you!

 

Finance Team: This team will start a booster club to fund our athletics program (REDUCING COSTS FOR OUR ATHLETES).

 

Medical Team: This team will be our team trainers. We will have home games next year, so we will need a trainer on site at each game home game and one “on call” each week in case of injury at a practice. It would be nice to have enough volunteers on this team to send a trainer with each of our teams to away games.

 

Driving Team: Ideally, we find multiple parents with large vehicles (again ideally a 12-man van) who are willing to drive our team in the afternoons to their games. This will give coaches an opportunity to talk to the team right before the game and provide our students the opportunity to walk in to their games as a team.

 

 

A couple goals we have set for 2015 include:

  • Fill all coaching vacancies for the following year by June each year
  • Fill all open positions on our parent committees
  • Have all teams practice four days a week
  • Find a way to incorporate more track B families

 

We are open to listening to any and all input you may have.

 

If you would like to sponsor or donate to our athletics program, please contact David Hazlebeck at athletics@sloclassical.org
