Oracle Challenger Tennis Tournament

Students, for those of you who love tennis or just like to stay active this could be a fun opportunity for you!

The Oracle Challenger Tennis Tournament going on through the end of the week is looking for middle and high school students to volunteer as ball kids. There are some major players in attendance! Ball kids track down the tennis balls on court during a match so they need to like running and moving about outdoors. No tennis knowledge is necessary, but of course helpful. The matches go on each day from 10 am – 5 pm ish.

There are promos, t-shirts, prizes, giveaways going on each day and depending on the number of hours they work during the week they can attend/work the final matches this weekend and even earn free tickets for their family. They will also be provided snacks, lunch and even dinner depending on their shift.

If any of your students are interested, they can text Crystal at 801-920-7078 with their availability and questions. Please be sure to have the students let Crystal know that they were referred by Irvine Public Schools Foundation.

Fitness Thursday

Lovely job today people. Some of you are learning how to control your breath during a workout! You might be sore tomorrow as today was a full body workout. Remember that strength training is only one piece of your health puzzle as we talked about yesterday. Tomorrow it’s basketball time with ELDOA at the end.

Art of Breathing-Metabolic Breathing

BREATHE! Good job today learning about some of the basics of breathing, breathing through your nose and through your mouth. We will have 5 more lessons about breath and then you will have a great baseline knowledge on how to breathe properly which will increase your health and vitality!

For the next week I want you to focus on breathing through your nose at all times(2/3 of your breath from your belly, 1/3 from your chest) and notice how you feel. It will take practice but over time you can do it.
