Our Tosa Tots 3K program got off to a great start this week! Our participants have been having so much fun in class, they get sad when it's time to leave. That is already making our โค๏ธ full!

Did you know that we have a virtual fitness option?

We know that not everyone is ready for in-person fitness classes. Perhaps our VIRTUAL Ultimate Total Body Toner class is a good fit for you!

Enjoy a moderate intensity at-home workout with Tosa Recโ€™s virtual adult fitness class. Follow along through our live stream (you will receive a link to request access to join the private Facebook Group once you complete your online registration).

Tone and sculpt your muscles using your bodyโ€™s resistance, simple hand weights (most participants choose weights from 3 to 10 lbs.) or even those cans of green beans in your cabinets. Also recommended is a water bottle to stay hydrated, a sweat towel for when you push yourself harder, and a yoga mat/towel for floor work and cool down.

Tuesdays and Thursdays, September 14 - December 2
6:00-7:00pm (you will have access to past workouts if you miss a class)
$65.00 for Residents and Non-Residents
Activity Number: 173094-01

The Summer Co-Ed Tag Rugby team, Tosa Thunder, had a great time this summer learning basic skills and drills in a team setting in twice per week practices. They also participated in a few weekend tournaments!

From a parent: "I really hope this program returns. The coach was great as were the kids from the Rec department. It was a great team and the passion for rugby is here in Tosa".

Rugby combines elements of hockey, soccer, and football into
a unique game that is easy to pick up, and requires no prior knowledge to play. It is also considered by many to be one of the fastest growing sports.

Where do I find fall activities?
I don't know how i could have made it through this summer without Tosa Rec's early lap swim. Thanks!
Is the gymnastics session which begins this week (2 year old with parents) still on? Havenโ€™t heard otherwise.
Iโ€™ve hesitated to sign my kids up for any summer Rec activities when the book came out due to all the uncertainty. I still would like to sign them up for some things but donโ€™t know what is still moving forward. Is there anyway you could post a list of what activities have been cancelled? Or perhaps this already exists somewhere?
Are adult evening fitness classes being held next Mon , Jan 20th, MLK day?
