Jackrabbit Class kicked off the year by unveiling our 20/20 Vision to clients and friends and since then our releases have been highly successful and celebrated by owners, directors and office managers in the gymnastics, cheer, dance and swim industries!
With this year of enhancements, our Product and Engineering teams aimed to help our users streamline their day-to-day workflows and reduce the amount of time spent in the system completing tasks. By enhancing the Parent Portal, registration and attendance experience and new reporting functionality, we’re making good on the promises we make to each new and seasoned user that logs in each day.
We aren’t stopping there though! We know that streamlining your workday goes well beyond billing, tuition and attendance reporting and into your student and parent experience in classes and instruction. That’s where our new partnership with LEAP! Learning comes in!
Curriculum and Lesson Planning Tools for Youth Activity Centers
LEAP! Learning provides a platform for center owners, directors and managers to bring curriculum content written by industry experts straight to their instructors and students. By importing the LEAP! Learning platform and curriculum into your Jackrabbit tools, you and your teachers will have an ideal solution to standardizing instructor training, learning outcomes and skill tracking.
With this new partnership, Jackrabbit users will have access to:
Instructor and Coach Training Courses
LEAP! Learning has hand-selected industry experts to curate a set of instructional courses to provide gyms, dance studios and swim schools with proven-successful methodology for teaching, engaging and enhancing the student experience in class.
Owners and managers can easily upload their staff information, assign training courses and deadlines and monitor progress to keep the lines of communication open!
Skill and Milestone Progression
As an added bonus to the instructor and coach training courses, LEAP! has gone the extra mile to arrange skill progression charts along with coach tutorials for an added way to learn and onboard new coaches or students.
If you’re already using the Jackrabbit Skill Tracking module, you’re well on your way to implementing this concept in your program.
Activity Library and Instructional Videos for Students
Inside of the LEAP! platform, you can find a video library stocked with tips, tricks, and tools for coaches and teachers to utilize on the floor with students of any age. Instructors can even lean on the advanced search feature for activities and skills in a pinch!
If you haven’t already implemented lesson planning in your program, the library can certainly give you a jump start but you’ll want to consider working ahead, in the long run, to deliver the most to your students, families, and staff.
Pre-Built Lesson Plans and Templates
Planning ahead always seems like a great idea, but let’s face it, the best-laid plans are often the first to be forgotten. When you take advantage of the new Jackrabbit and LEAP! partnership, you’ll have access to dozens of lesson plans and activities that tie directly back to the instructor training courses.
If you are a gymnastics gym, dance studio or swim school writing your own lesson planning and curriculum, there’s still plenty of great content and fresh ideas inside the LEAP! platform. You and your instructors can use the activities you’ve built, combine them with new ideas or skills progression and create your own lesson plans to share with staff and parents inside the application.
Getting started with Lesson Planning Software
Implementing any new system can be a little overwhelming in the beginning. When you started your Jackrabbit Free Trial, we partnered you with Jumpstart Coaches and periodic check-ins to be sure that you and your team were moving in the right direction.
Utilizing the LEAP! and Jackrabbit partnership is no different. Our friends at LEAP! will have you and your team up and running in no time with instructional videos, easy-to-use staff accounts and permissions, quick-add staff courses and a support team who’s ready to help you roll out high-quality instruction and lesson plans to your facility as quickly as possible.
