Meeting Time: 7:20am - 8:20am
Meeting Location: Fitness Center
Club Sponsor: Mr. Kitt Kopach
Club Description: Students will have one morning session per week of supervised access to the Maple Fitness Center. Students of all fitness levels will learn to set realistic goals, track their individual progress, and participate in a variety of workouts based on student interest. Students will also learn about health, wellness and nutritional information. All dates will be announced on Friday's by 3:30pm for the upcoming week date. Please check the Maple Athletics Calendar for the meeting dates online, or students can check outside the Fitness Center on the white board sign posted on the Fitness Center entrance door. The day of the week students will meet will change each week, but never the time. This helps to ensure that even when school weeks are shortened due to district holidays, non-attendance days, etc., students will still have the opportunity to continue to improve their overall health and wellness. The morning times will allow for less after-school activity conflicts and will help jumpstart students into a more physically active start to their day. Students will still be required to participate in their regularly scheduled P.E. classes, so they should monitor their own exertion levels to maintain a healthy status without causing injury due to overuse. Students are encouraged to bring a change of clothes or use an extra set of P.E. clothing (uniform). Locker rooms will be accessible at 7:20am when the club is expected to meet. The same rules/expectations for the locker rooms will be followed just as they are for after-school athletics/activities. Any issues regarding negative attitudes, poor behavior or misuse of locker room facilities will result in a referral to building administrators to have the issue discussed. All the same rules/expectations for P.E. and after-school athletics/activities will be followed while students are members of the Fitness Club. Attendance will be taken each session, but there is no need to report absences to Mr. Kopach. Upon arrival to Maple, students should report to their appropriate locker room to change or to the Fitness Center if they are already appropriately dressed for physical activity. Students should not be walking through the hallways after 7:20am, except for heading to the previously stated areas. Students will have ten minutes to change, go to their school lockers and get to class after the morning session concludes. This is three times as long as students have during regular passing periods.
All questions should be sent along with the student and discussed in person with Mr. Kopach at the first meeting. If a student misses the first session, they should come to the next morning session that works with their individual calendar to discuss any questions.
