Move 60 Teens! is an afterschool program that will encourage and empower teens to become more active and adopt healthy behaviors. Through nutrition and fitness activities, along with a fun, teen-friendly environment, participants will learn skills that will promote lifetime physical fitness, regardless of their current ability level.

We have divided the week into three smaller programs that will focus on physical exercise and healthy food programs. The schedule includes:

  • Team XTreme 
    Being healthy and getting active can be very challenging but through intramural and alternative sports, teens will see that being active can be fun! With large group games, intramural sports and swimming, teens will be well on their way to a healthy lifestyle! 
    • Monday/Wednesday: College Place Middle School and Meadowdale Middle School
    • Tuesday/Thursday: Alderwood Middle School and Brier/Terrace Middle School

 

  • Snack Attack  
    You will learn how to make yummy and healthy snacks, smoothies and treats. You will also learn why nutrition plays an important role in being healthy. The best part is you get to eat the food you make!
    • Friday: Alderwood Middle School and Brier Terrace Middle School (Winter 2020)

 

Registration packets may be picked up at each Edmonds School District Middle School office or call Kacee at 425-670-5524 to request one.

This night includes a DJ/dance floor, Dodgeball, Italian sodas ($1), popcorn, snacks, a movie, games and of course, swimming!  

Here's how it works: Upon arrival, students will line up in our traditional "swim line" area. Staff will check ID and hand out bracelets to those that will be attending event. We let 10 kids in at a time to be told rules and expectations, wanded with a metal detector by police officers, pay and then drop off their belongings in our "bag check" room. They are then allowed to choose their activities for the night. At the end of the night, participants will need to pick up their items from the "bag check" room before leaving.

Nightwaves Expectations:

  • Students must bring a current Edmonds School District ID or be able to login to their school's software program to show which school and grade they attend. No screen shots - you must login on site. If they cannot show one of these two items, they will not be allowed into the event.

  • NEW - Please bring belongings in a drawstring backpack. This speeds up the process when bags are wanded by the police and allows everyone to get in the building faster. If a normal school backpack is brought, the police have to search each section of the bag.  

  • Police officers are present for these events and will assist with any discipline issues that arise. We also have help from Citizens Patrol to help with traffic flow.

  • To help prevent theft, all participants will leave their bag in our "bag check" room. They have unlimited access to their belonging but may not carry them around with them. While swimming, if participants choose to use a locker in the locker room, they must bring their own lock or accept risk of stolen items.

  • No weapons, fighting or bullying. If there are issues with behavior, we will contact parents as well as inform school staff of the incident.

  • No alcohol, drugs, vape pens, cigarettes, etc

  • There is no re-entry. If a teen leaves the event they cannot re-enter.  

  • For safety reasons, no members of the public (including parents) are allowed in the building during this event. Parents are welcome to wait between the two sets of doors as they wait for their child to exit. We encourage parents to set up a time and pick up location with their child.  

  • Dress Code is strictly enforced which may include (but is not limited to):

  • No short shorts or short skirts (both must be as long as fingers with hands at side)
  • No underwear showing (boxers or bra straps)
  • No spaghetti strap tops, no tube tops
  • No gang apparel or clothing with inappropriate language or images
  • No baggy pants
  • No chains hanging from pants

For specific questions please contact Youth/Teen programs at 425-670-5524. If you call the day of the event you will not be able to reach teen programs.
