Ready, Set, Gold! Spring Series
Ready, Set, Gold! Launches Eight-Week Virtual Classroom Series for Spring Semester, Hosted by Top Olympians and Paralympians.
The 30-minute Virtual Ready, Set, Gold! lessons give students the opportunity to exercise with a talented Olympian or Paralympian at home. The virtual curriculum focuses on results-based physical activity conducted without equipment, and SEL topics for teachers to leverage. The fitness portion of the lessons range from endurance and flexibility to balance and strength training, and is developed by Dr. Karen Bloch who led the Sports Medicine and Performance Department for Team USA Water Polo. The thematic units include lessons on goal-setting, perseverance, and leadership –all brought to life by the real personal experiences of RSG!’s Olympic and Paralympic mentors.
“After the success of our first virtual program, we are thrilled to offer the Ready, Set, Gold! virtual Spring Series, which provides a safe way for students to integrate nutrition and fitness tips from our Olympic and Paralympic stars into their daily lives,” said John Naber, Chairman of Ready, Set, Gold!. “Though we eagerly await a return to our in-school programming, this virtual series opens the door to reach so many students who would typically not have that opportunity, and we look forward to inspiring kids in Southern California and beyond.”
