To all baseball players. Below are some activities you can do by yourself and still keeping social distancing. The best suggestion I have is to just try to get (and keep) the fundamentals going. Run, throw, catch, swing. Always stretch your arms and legs before doing anything. Catch - As far as home drills, use a tennis ball and bounce off a wall inside or out, practice backhand, forehand and straight ahead with no glove. Make it a competition and only move on when you catch 10 in a row each way. You can do this on a knee or standing up. If you have a partner, and can go outside, have them throw a line drive (or soft fly) a short distance to a players back and forehand. Again, make it a competition, catch 5-10 in a row before switching sides. Run... Whatever distance they have available, but if they have a 90 foot area, practice running / sprinting that distance 10-20 times a day. Simulate a lead, and then sprinting to a base. They will stay in decent shape by sprinting this distance every day. Hit - Use a real bat or whiffle ball bat - toss the ball in the air and hit it. Mix it up, use one hand and then both. Sounds simple, but the object is to strengthen your hand eye. If you have a friend or family member available have them soft toss to you. On Twitter Ryan Dempster has some cool drills for pitchers to work at home. He has grip suggestions and drills - he is at twitter.com/Dempster46

Please follow the link below to fill out a form through which you may order lunch. The form should be completed by 9 am on the day prior to pick up. The pick up time and location remain the same: 11-12 at the front entrance of the school. https://forms.gle/9j7yNRjjYsBqSGXL7
Dear Nashoba Tech Families, We are reaching out to let you know that our students are able to visit Nashoba Tech Monday through Friday for a grab and go breakfast and lunch. This will occur in front of Nashoba Tech between 11:00 and 12:00 pm. Nashoba Tech students may also have opportunities for meal pick up in their town of residence in cooperation with our sending communities. For example, Nashoba Tech students that reside in Littleton may pick up two days of breakfast and lunch on Tuesday, March 17 and Thursday, March 19 between 8:00 and 10:00 am at the main entrance of Littleton High School by the flag pole. Nashoba Tech students residing in Lowell may also visit the Lowell district website for details on meal pick up.

Please know, we are committed to helping our families in any way we can during this difficult time. If you have any questions regarding meal service please do not hesitate to reach out to the Principal’s office and we will assist you.
March 16, 2020 Dear Nashoba Tech Community, As we continue to navigate COVID-19, your Athletic Department and Health Department have collaborated to offer workout plans to help keep you active in a safe and healthy way. Social distancing must be taken seriously, and we are encouraging you to stay away from the gym and other fitness facilities and instead exercise at home or outside taking the necessary precautions. Using the link below, you will find access to the following workouts and workout programs: Nashoba Tech - At Home Workouts 5-Week Bodyweight Workout Challenge H.I.I.T. (High Intensity Interval Training) Workout Walking to Running - 30 Day Plan 5-Week Couch to 5K Training Plan Individual Workout Challenges Stretching and Flexibility Take a walk/run/hike/bike - our community is full of outdoor trails and nature areas, now is the time to enjoy them. In addition to these suggestions, we encourage you to respect the social distancing recommendations of the CDC and other health experts. This means: Do not have people over your house. This creates new links and possibilities for the type of transmission that school/work/public event closures are trying to prevent. Do not share food or drinks. Stay home as much as possible to reduce your risk of being exposed and prevent spread. Wash your hands thoroughly after touching surfaces in public places and upon returning home from any public place. Carry hand sanitizer with you and use it regularly. Avoid touching your face, nose, eyes, etc. Clean and disinfect your home to remove germs: practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces (for example: cell phones, doorknobs, light switches, handles, toilets) Additional Resources: Staying Physically Active During the COVID-19 Pandemic Mental Health and Social Distancing Sports Nutrition Fact Sheets Up-to-date Information about COVID-19 Stay well!
