UGA Ninja Squad, created and developed by our very own UGA Staff member, Coach Pete Kallend! This program will take the place of the previous Ninja Kids program. It is a co-ed program for ages 5 and up. Here is Coach Pete’s description of this fun new class:
The UGA Ninja Squad class will give students a unique experience that embraces their individual personality while promoting teamwork. The class will focus on completing objectives in order to move through the ranks. Each class can incorporate all ranks, objectives will be determined by rank and skill level, personalizing each task to the individual student. Objectives are completed by utilizing skills learned in the areas of agility, discipline, strength and teamwork. Each week, the students will practice their skills before attempting to solve an obstacle course puzzle. Each puzzle will be constructed so that the student will have to plan their strategy before they begin. These puzzles will include elements of free motion, gymnastics, climbing and self-defense. Each student will receive colored wristbands that displays their rank and marks them as members of the ninja squad!
