Ready, Set, Gold! Launches Enhanced Eight-Week Virtual Classroom Series


Ready, Set, Gold! has announced a new, eight-week digital classroom series designed to help kids stay active while distance learning from home. The series is available for free online to all students through the support of The Foundation for Global Sports Development and Sidewinder Films.


The 30-minute Virtual Ready, Set, Gold! lessons give students the opportunity to exercise with a talented Olympian or Paralympian and learn a life lesson along the way. The series will teach students about a variety of topics that include the growth mindset, embracing challenges, healthy living and nutrition, perseverance, and self-awareness. Corresponding workouts will put these concepts into action.


“The virtual series provides a safe way for students to benefit at home from Ready, Set, Gold!,” said Michaela Reynolds, Program Director for Ready, Set, Gold!.  David Ulich, GSD Executive Board Member agreed, stating, “I believe this program may be a lifeline for some young people. The guidance and encouragement offered by the Olympians and Paralympians will surely inspire students during these challenging times.” The Foundation for Global Sports Development and Sidewinder Films serve as long-time supporters of Ready, Set, Gold! and are a key sponsor for this innovative project.

In addition to the series’ availability on Classroom Champions, all lessons will also be made available specifically to students at the YMCA of Metro LA and at Ready, Set, Gold! partner schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District, the Claremont Unified School District, the Newport-Mesa Unified School District, the Snowline Joint Unified School District, and the Chula Vista School District.

It’s been quite a year for educators, and we understand that this Fall Series might have slipped your mind, but never fear! We are keeping the series open on our teacher dashboard for a few months so you can share it in the New Year.

The complete virtual series includes the following Olympians/Paralympians:
