COVID-19 / Class Schedule Changes

WEDNESDAY CLASSES- there are 2 more classes in the Winter Session, your canceled classes will be honored in another future session. Thank you for understanding during this difficult time for all. 😦

As per recommendations from our school districts, it is wise that we start Spring Jackrabbits until April. The Sunday classes were scheduled to begin on March 29, but we will push that out to the following Sunday, but most likely further. Our early April dates may get pushed back, too.

We are constantly checking updates on when it is appropriate to begin. 

Thank you for your patience.

For those who have had children in Jackrabbits already, I highly recommend that they lead a class for you and your family! They know the routine & it is a great way to exercise and for them to get a “coaching” experience! 😀

CANCELED: Kids Half Lapper Race at the STANFORD INVITATIONAL 2020! (Meet at noon-race at 12:38-over by 12:45pm)

Yay!!!  Come race a 200 meter with your age group!! Watch a real awesome meet after/before your race!!

This race is during the Stanford Invitational Track Meet.  It is a college & high school meet..and there is a special, highlighted race for the kids!  The race begins at 12:38pm SHARP..it is important to meet Coach Joy  near the Brick Information Building outside the track @ 12:00pm. …there, we will divide into age groups to race:  5 & under, 6 ,7…etc..and walk to the start of the 200m. (This 200m race is open to all kids ages 12 and under). This is a great opportunity to run a 200m..the crowd will cheer for everyone & it is a fun experience! Yay!! Everyone racing receives an award, too! (..races are over by 12:48pm ..college races immediately follow).  Parents may walk out to the start with the children & also wait at finish line. HOWEVER, there is a high power meet happening around this 200m event for kids..so Please be aware of other athletes in the infield. So, after the fun kids races, we must exit the track immediately. 

Arrive early! There will be tons of team busses & cars parked all over.

Invite your friends!
