TEAM LINK NORTHAMPTON
4 TO 8 YEAR OLDS: MONDAY / WEDNESDAY 5 PM
8 TO 12 YEAR OLDS: TUESDAY / THURSDAY 5 PM
4 TO 8 YEAR OLD PROGRAM:
Our Monday and Wednesday classes are designed for younger or newer students. We generally say ages 4 to 8, but there are exceptions. We do have some very focused 3 year olds that take the class. We also have some 10 year olds in this class because they feel more comfortable with the format. Another reason a child over 8 may partake in the class would be because they have younger siblings and its easier for parents to have all their kids train at the same time. Whatever works for you and your family, we will try our best to accommodate.
The Monday / Wednesday classes will have exercises and drills that focus on body awareness and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fundamentals. We will address topics like the rules of the sport and how to train safely. Focus and discipline will be a reoccurring theme of this class. Most importantly (to the kids), we will be playing some games!
4 TO 8 YEAR OLDS
8 TO 12 YEAR OLD PROGRAM:
Our Tuesday and Thursday classes are designed for older or more advanced younger students. We generally say ages 8 to 12, but like the Monday and Wednesday classes, there are exceptions. We do have some very focused 7 year olds that take the class. We also have some 13 year olds in this class because they feel more comfortable with the format vs and adult class. As always, whatever works for you and your family, we will try our best to accommodate.
The Tuesday / Thursday classes will consist of warming up, stretching, drilling, technique and sparring. Like the Monday and Wednesday class, we will also address topics like the rules of the sport, how to train safely, focus and discipline. If your child is considering competing, this would be the class for them.
A nice option and unique learning experience for kids in this class is that they can attend any Monday and Wednesday class as well. They would be asked to assist with helping the newer and younger students. It is a great way for them to learn what it is like to help and teach.
