We’ll do everything from freeze tag to egg races to obstacle course runs to learning the fundamentals of soccer and basketball. All of the games we play are designed to help kids build gross motor skills while instilling a joy around being active.

YOU’RE ON THE AIR How to Really Make it in Voice-Overs!

with Such A Voice, Lisa Foster VOICE-OVERS are hot today! You don’t have to be an actor to get voice-over work, but it certainly doesn’t hurt!

Family Members Age 11+ with Paige Tyson. Questions about class content? Call 209.532.6269 Beginning: In this class, your dog is taught to sit, down, stay, come, heel and easy (walking nicely at the end of the leash without pulling). The dog is taught to move freely and easily with the collar, so one day you barely have to use it. The dog is also taught to perform things and to willingly do or not do things, not just be prevented from doing them. Verbal and/or physical praise from owner is given. This builds a relationship between owner and dog. Any specific problems you are having will be addressed and cured in class or by a lifestyle change at home. You will need a 6 foot comfortable leash. Instructor will supply the nylon collar.

Martial Arts Tai Chi Chuan Whole Body Movement

with Linda Scheer, M.S. Vocational Rehab, practicing Tai Chi since 1988 and teaching since 1995. Tai Chi Chuan is an internal martial art, promoting balance, strength, flexibility, health, and relaxation. The class covers Chi Kung warm-ups, the Tai Chi stance and principles, the short and long integrated forms and applications, and partner movement. The individual begins learning the basics and the form. Partner movement happens only when the student is comfortable with it and is approached without force. Standing massage may be included in order to relax you into the Tai Chi mindset, but it is purely optional. Wear comfortable clothing. Talk with instructor prior to registering for the Intermediate class. Location: RMCC $157 / $137 Resident Discount or DROP-IN: $15 per class CLASS

FREE AGENT SPORTS LISTS Are you looking to play on a Softball, Volleyball, or Basketball team, but do not have a team to play on? If so, this year we have added a new “FREE AGENT FORM”. We do not place individuals on specific teams, but will provide a place where teams can go to find additional players for their teams, should they need people. Free Agent Forms can be downloaded at : www.quickscores.com/redwoodcity You will be required to complete the entire form, including what sport you would like to play, age, level of ability, positions you play, and a current photo of you. The form will be kept on file in the Sports Commissioner’s office, and only be used as a guide for Team Managers. If you have been placed on an old Free Agent list in the past, you must complete the new form for 2013. Incomplete forms will not be processed. Another way to find a team is to go to the games directly, and ask the managers. We’ll do our best to find a team for you to play on.
