Welcome

Olympians
 
Welcome all new and previous athletes, and new home school students to the Phoenix Gliders Education and track and field team. We are a  local non-profit 501(c)3 under the AAU association.  Also if you are looking to increase your speed for your sport, we train physical conditioning for endurance, agility, and speed.   


Our  track season is a nine month program that consists ofboth rigorous training and competing in track and field events.  Equipping athletes with better eating habits, leadership skills, community service and resources to achieve their highest potential in the classroom for college readiness.  We are members of both USATF and the AAU Association of competitive sports. Our goal is to commit to our youth in conditioning, and teaching track & field technique, discipline and to the development of scholastic and collegiate competition in athletic skills.    We are apart of Facebook with school information for scholarships or just information, if you have an account look up Phoenix Gliders and like it.

For students that are home schooled, physical education is unique to the school curriculum as it is the only program that provides students with opportunities to learn motor skills, develop fitness, and gain understanding about the importance of physical activity. Students will be provided an individualized, developmentally appropriate, and personally challenging instructional program that will advance their knowledge, confidence, skills, and motivation needed to engage in a lifelong, healthy, active lifestyle. Our skill-based P.E. curriculum is designed and developed to meet the needs of the homeschool and charter school networks for K-12th grades. Importance of physical education programs as regular physical activity not only improves one’s overall well-being, it is one of the best preventers of significant health problems—including overweight or obesity, high blood pressure and cholesterol levels— linked to many chronic diseases


 We believe that we have a mission to teach each child to have respect for others, leadership, ethics, sportsmanship, and to always do their best.  Winning comes in many different forms and the athletes learn not only to compete, but to always finish and never give up. Our motto: "It's not how you start but how you finish"    

    Fighting Diabetes 

Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. Only 5% of people with diabetes have this form of the disease. Regardless of the type of diabetes you have, regular physical activity is important for your overall health and wellness. With type 1, it’s very important to balance your insulin doses with the food you eat and the activity that you do – even if you are just doing house or yard work. Planning ahead and knowing your body’s typical blood glucose response to exercise can help you keep your blood glucose from going too low or too high
