While it may not spark the viral sharing of YouTube, the school district’s athletic and technology departments have teamed to create video content for the district web site at sagharborschools.org.
Sean Crowley, a physical education instructor at the elementary school, and Vincent Raicovi, the district’s computer technology chief, have posted “Step, Strength and Stretch”, a two-minute video under the heading Elementary News, [http://sagharborschools.org/?q=node/7]Â re-capping a recent aerobic fitness unit. Featured are elementary school students moving through a series of movements intended to improve balance, flexibility and confidence.
Crowley and Raicovi have also pulled together an initial Pierson baseball section under the Athletics heading, offering conditioning tips, a schedule link, program guidelines and other baseball-centered information for Whaler players and their families.
Already looking ahead to posting more of what he and Hank Katz are incorporating into the elementary phys. ed. curriculum, Coach Crowley said he will “continue to video events such as the YMCA swim program, skating at Buckskill and the indoor field day at SYS.” He described the baseball section as “a first attempt to deliver information online to my student-athletes, their parents and the fans of Pierson-Bridgehampton baseball. I can see in the future using the district site to publish statistics, photos, local press coverage and video highlights from Whaler baseball games.”
