About:

Introducing AYSF classes!

Starting this year, AYSF volunteers are offering one-hour-long classes each week across various topics for the span of 6 weeks, the week of September 5th to the week of October 10th.

Classes will be held virtually through zoom and are free. You can sign up for as many courses as you want.

Purpose:

With the COVID pandemic still lingering around, many students have had limited opportunities to socialize, learn and grow. This terrible situation has impacted many people in so many ways which is why the Amateur Youth Sports Foundation is offering free online courses of various subjects taught by our volunteer members. In addition, our members are teaching fun and exciting subjects that students might not normally have the opportunity to learn about!

Note: No prior knowledge is necessary for any class!

     If you struggle with reading or writing, we will be able to help with your skills and improve them for you to become a successful writer in the future!

Introduction to Java for Middle Schoolers
Sundays 8:30 - 9:30 am Pacific Time
     Java is a widely used computer programming language with endless possibilities! This course will cover basic to intermediate Java, from basic syntax, functions, arrays, to more complex classes, objects, and algorithms. We will be creating snippets of programs like calculators and games to further practice your computer science skills.
     If you have no idea what Java is (or even what computer science is) this class is for you! The vast field of computer science is exciting and this class teaches the necessary skills to write fun and useful programs.


Japanese 1A/1B for Middle Schoolers
Sundays 10 - 11 am Pacific Time
     This course will introduce the basics of the Japanese language. In Japanese there are 3 alphabets but in this course we will be going over 2 of them: Hiragana and Katakana.
     Introducing ourselves in Japanese culture is a little different so if you want to introduce yourself like in your favorite anime -- this is the course for you!
