Mobile PE and Financial Aid Now Available for Physical Education Classes

Posted by debbie

13gem-composite-with-websiteGreetings, allow me to reintroduce myself, I am Coach Jacob, a certified Physical Education Specialist from the University of Georgia who moved to Washington state to create the first Homeschool and Adaptive Needs Physical Education program.  The organization is called 13 Generations Educational Mission, LLC (13GEM) and it operates the programs “PE for EveryBody” and “Adapted PE for EveryBody” which currently has Flag Football, Ultimate Frisbee, and Locomotor & Spatial Mapping classes operating at Perrigo Park in Redmond and Robinswood Park in Bellevue.  Other classes offered are Soccer, Flickerball, non-contact Lacrosse, Yoga/Tai Chi, and Basketball.

I have been developing the organization and wanted to let you know of some of the improvements that have been made to eliminate barriers-to-entry because I truly want to Physically Educate as many students as possible.

*An aggressive Financial Aid program has been developed that provides a sliding scale tuition based on household income for parents who may require financial assistance.

*Mobile PE has been developed which means that PE is no longer restricted to Starfire Sports.  Now you can have PE classes at a local park of your choosing (must have field turf and pass safety inspection) on the days and times that best fit your schedule.  I am available for classes seven days per week and am restricted only by previous scheduling and visibility of the implement.  Due to Mobile PE, I will no longer be available at Starfire Sports Mondays-Fridays from 10am-noon for open drop-ins or meet-and-greets.

*Parents Participate FREE!!!  Now the whole family can get the recommended amount of health-enhancing physical activity per week while learning and making friends.  Also, learn how to self-implement PE activities at home.

With the development of Financial Aid and Mobile PE, I feel that the barriers-to-entry of WHEN, WHERE, and COST have been overcome.  I want to build an organization that EveryBody can afford, access, and become empowered by; rest assured the program is empowering and now it is affordable and accessible to all.

If there are any other barriers-to-entry that I haven’t taken care of then please let me know and we will see what we can do.  Email me anytime with questions and/or comments- 13gempe@gmail.com and visit www.13gem.org for more information to help you understand the Physical Education programs and social services provided.

I am also in the process of creating an online PE instructional series on www.13gem.org that provides free instructional videos with an optional downloadable curriculum of instruction and activities for a small one-time fee.  Subjects included are: Flag Football, Ultimate Frisbee, Soccer, Flickerball, non-contact Lacrosse, Yoga/Tai Chi, Basketball, and Locomotor & Spatial Mapping.

That would allow you to self-implement a Physical Education program at home.

GOT PE???  I would love to start a regularly occurring Homeschool PE group in your area.  I hope there are a few parents who feel the same way.  No minimums on students- if you want PE then 13GEM will happily provide it.

I hope I have the opportunity to Physically Educate your student(s).
