Frequently Answered Questions:
Q. What are typical ages of the kids in the Program?
90% of the kids are K-5th Grade with few exceptions younger and a bit older. 75% of our kids have been with FUZE for 2+ years. We will also make every attempt to accommodate an extended time trial afterschool to ensure you and your child have found the best fit.
Q. What are the benefits and what makes the FUZE program unique?
Physical Activity – PCA-certified physical educators, caring coaches, and our curriculum will get the wiggles out, build their confidence, advance their appreciation for sports and movement, in a facility designed from the ground up with kids’ needs in mind. It is now a known fact that physical activity improves and enriches academic performance. Every day, kids will be able to choose which classes they wish to participate in, ranging from our award-winning and nationally recognized Intelligent Sports Conditioning program known as Sports FiT, to Yoga, Hip-Hop, Rock Climbing, Jumpsport Trampoline, Martial Arts, and sports-specific classes for older kids like Game FiT and more. Each Class is 60 minutes in length with 10-15 minutes of Interactive Gaming on activity-based/movement evidence-based video fitness for fun and ongoing engagement. Often, we utilize our basketball court for simulation and to get outdoors.
Stress Management – Our teachers and instructors are either degreed graduates or certified teachers themselves – we proactively manage and anticipate opportunities to ensure for a relaxed atmosphere, plus classes like Yoga, Zumba, Hip-Hop, Martial Arts will lift their spirits and calm their mind so they’re ready to perform their school work. Most important, we make our “workouts” fun! Our coaching are adults who have been in the field of healthcare and coaching for a combined 75 years – we understand how to work with kids, bring out the best in each by connecting with them to find out what motivates them and rarely ever have any disciplinary problems whatsoever. We can actually tell when kids have not had P.E. at school on any given day and anticipate the need for creative movement.
Socialization & Leadership – FUZE kids will build camaraderie with their coaches and be certain to make new friends throughout the school year. We will set mutual goals and kids will learn what it means to accomplish them, all while living our character values on a daily basis. As a non-competitive program, our philosophy is inclusion and achievement through Personal Best, most often achieved through teamwork. We’ll reward kids for demonstrating coaching assistance, organizing teams, and going out of his or her way to introduce a new child to the program throughout the school year.
Homework Support – Our caring Homework Director will work with your child on an individual basis as space and time permit, and be certain to address “raised hands” throughout each hour of dedicated homework time. We will provide the materials required for specialized art projects to basic pencils, paper and erasers. When homework is over (or if s/he does not have any), we’ll set-up creative/board games, and age-appropriate reading material. The Homework Director will also administer our nutritious Snack Program – no compliments of FUZE – on behalf of your child. Shuttle Service, is of course, also available, and is in its 3rd year of operation from local schools.
Q. What does a typical daily schedule look like?
The Afterschool Program classes mirror our Schedule of Classes on our website here, and your child will choose which activities s/he wishes to participate in with few exceptions on a daily basis. If homework is a preference, we can accommodate that as well.
