The focus of the class will be a total body workout, including cardio, arms, abs and legs. No muscles will be left untouched. This class will build your confidence, lose inches, build lean muscle and ignite your life!
Excessive Heat Warning
The Teutopolis Park District is aware of the Excessive Heat Warning for the next few days. The park district does NOT cancel games due to the heat; however, if a parent strongly feels that his/her child should not play, that parent should contact the coach at least 2 hours prior to the game to let the coach know that his/her child will not be playing. If the coach determines that the team does not have enough players to play the game, that coach should contact Kent Niebrugge, the Program Director, to cancel the game.
If a child is going to play, parents should take the proper precautions. Each player should have a water bottle to stay hydrated. A towel in a small cooler of ice water to wipe their face and arms down to stay cool is also a good idea. If a player begins to not feel well, that player should notify his/her coach immediately. The park district wants to give the kids the opportunity to play but, also wants the kids to be safe.
Canceling a game is never an easy decision. People get upset when you cancel a game. People get upset when you don’t. In this situation, the park district is letting the parents decide what is appropriate for their child.
