I cannot tell you how impressed I have been with the entire 2nd Recess experience! The coaches have a gentle and firm hand, an obvious love for track and, at least as importantly, an obvious love for the children. They maintain a supportive, positive and disciplined class that offers tremendous benefits to the kids – and not only physically.


I enrolled my son, Aaron, into 2nd Recess because he expressed an interest in track. After a couple weeks coming, my 5 year-old son, Alex, wanted to join in. The first week I had to participate with him for the first half, but after that he was on his own. He mentions track every single day, and we now count down the days (and even hours) until he’s back on the field! As a parent it’s wonderful. As someone who works with children (I direct and stage manage the shows for the City’s huge dance program) I feel I’m especially qualified to give criticism and praise. For 2nd Recess – I wouldn’t change a thing. The instructors have been wonderful, the experience entirely positive for my kids and my family.


Congratulations on such a wonderful and supportive experience you’ve created. We’ll be back – you can count on it!


Yours very warmly,


Alan Schueler
