    Parisi Speed School
    at Double Diamond

    We have been working with Double Diamond Athletic Club in Reno to offer our kids an opportunity to participate in a weekly youth physical education training at their Parisi Speed School.

    Kids ages 7-18 are challenged and trained in different areas by elite qualified coaches (one a homeschool grad herself!) at their facility.

    We have seen a huge variety of abilities, as they work with children with no sports background who are wanting to develop coordination, acceleration and speed all the way to top athletes.

    The big thing for kids like my son, who have been hesitant and uncomfortable in gym environments, is that the coaches are all about self-esteem building, team-building and it’s FUN!  It truly is an incredible program, which is why I’ve been trying to get our homeschoolers a chance to get in there and check it out!

    Here’s their program description:

    The Parisi Youth Sports Training System has proven results for youth from age 7 to 18 and beyond. This program is designed to get youth physically fit and create a foundation for a life-long healthy life style, all while having fun

    ·         Active Dynamic Warm-up –this true warm-up focuses on specific exercises and choreographed maneuvers during dynamic muscular movement to increase body core temperature and blood flow.

    ·         Movement Skill Methods – This phase is focused on the four areas important to a strong and powerful foundation: deceleration, acceleration, change of direction and maximum speed.

    ·         Strength and Power Development – Also focused on four areas, this phase targets the muscular and nervous systems in order to create strength, power and stabilization throughout the body.

    Parisi Class Schedule:

    I am SO excited and have even BETTER news than the original price per month quoted for Parisi classes 3 x per week at Double Diamond Athletic Club!

    They agreed to enroll each child or teen at the rate of $45 per month!

    Here’s the scoop:

    Your child/teen needs to have an evaluation before starting as they track their progress and assess monthly, they were super motivational and encouraging with my oldest!

    The assessments are any Wednesday at 5:30pm or Saturday at 10am.

    Please call the club to schedule the assessment (775) 851-7171

    When you go to sign up, please remind them you’re with Carlen Cooper’s Homeschool group and the $45/month rate.

    Again, you can pick any 3 days a week that work for you.  They offer classes 6 days a week so please check their schedule attached here and get started in this awesome program!

    TeenPact Registration

    It's time! Registration is now open!!! I'm super excited.
    Go here to sign up your kids.

    Dear Home School Families,

    My family has been homeschooling for the past 14 years and it has certainly been an adventure, as I’m sure your journey has been as well.  I think we can all agree that choosing to home educate is one of the best decisions we’ve all made! 

    Because of our common desire to offer excellent learning opportunities for our children, I am excited to tell you about another wonderfully enriching program called TeenPact Leadership Schools.  TeenPact currently conducts week-long classes in 42 state capitols where we teach students about all the components of state government.  TeenPact’s mission statement is as follows: “TeenPact Leadership Schools seeks to inspire youth in their relationship with Christ and train them to understand the political process, value their liberty, defend the Christian faith, and engage the culture at a time in their lives when, typically, they do not care about such things.”  Our student led staff meets with students for four days at their respective capitol (this year Carson City!) for an incredible hands-on learning experience which includes field experiences, listening to speakers, prayer walks, participating in a mock legislature, passing bills through committees and much more.  As a bonus, each student receives 1/3 Carnegie credit by attending a state class. The highlight for most students is the fun they have during the Evening Sessions each night where they interact with the staff, play games participate in worship and hear from a speaker.   Each student is challenged to think critically, grow spiritually and come away with an excellent understanding of the state government and servant leadership all while have a ton of fun and making new friends.

    The Four Day class (Monday – Thursday) is for students 13-19 years of age with the option to stay for the Political Communication Workshop on Friday.  Also on Friday, we offer a One Day class for 8 – 12 year olds.  The One Day is a “snap shot” of what happens at the Four Day and is filled with worship, skits, pray walks, discussing bills in committees, elections and much more.  It’s a fabulous day to spend with younger students while introducing them to state government processes.  They will have fun without knowing they are learning as well. 

    This year the Four Day class is February 12-16:

         Four Day class (13-19 year olds)- Feb 12-15      

        One Day class (8-12 year olds)- Feb 16

        Political Communications Workshop (13-19)-Feb        


    If you would like to receive more information about TeenPact, please visit our website at or you may contact me directly.   I am happy to answer any questions you may have.. 

    Please contact me for more information.

    I hope to see you and your students in February in Carson City! I can assure you, it will be time well spent!

    Our annual @NNHSNEWS #fieldtrip to #RenoAirRaces2017 is HUGE! We are expecting 371 #homeschoolers today! That means you just might see more posts and PHOTOS from the event than you would otherwise expect.

    Hey, post your photos with #NNHSNews on InstagramTwitter and the NNHS Facebook Group or Public Page!

    Erica will be at the main gate for check-in between 9:30-9:45 to give out wristbands. We MUST ENTER TOGETHER, as a single group, at 10am. Please don't be late.

    Please don't identify kids' names with their faces, unless it's your kid. :-) Backs of heads and extreme closeups or far away shots are great!
