Great opportunity for your students! KHS Sailing Club is looking for anyone who loves the water and would be interested in sailing competitively. There are fantastic college scholarship opportunities, and sailing provides a good workout with tons of fun! Students will build relationships and meet people from all over the Pacific NW! Sailing strengthens team building and communication, giving students lifelong skills. Practices start the first week of March and go throughout the spring. Practices are at Sail Sand Point on Wednesdays from 3:00-6:00 PM and at Corinthian Yacht Club on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00-7:00. Racing is on the weekends and carpool is available. If scheduling is a potential issue due to prior commitments, just let me know. This program is flexible, there are scholarships available, and there are amazing coaches with lots of experience.

  • CyberKnights- Unveiling

Our King’s High School FRC Robotics team, The CyberKnights, will be holding their annual Robot Unveiling Event! At this event, robotics teams from all over the Pacific Northwest are invited to come and share their robot and CAD designs. This is a great chance for teams to network and share ideas and strategies before the first week of competition season which starts the next weekend. This event has attracted teams from all over the world including Uganda, Australia, Israel, and Vietnam, who watch through live streams and participate by submitting videos and video-calling in. After weeks of stressful planning and building, this event is the perfect opportunity for robotics teams to celebrate what they have achieved during their 6 week build season.

When: Saturday, February 15th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. – Schirmer Auditorium

The event can also be viewable at: https://www.twitch.tv/firstwa_blue1.

The CyberKnights will also be competing at Glacier Peak High School Saturday, February 29th and Sunday, March 1st in their first of 3 district competitions in the 2020 season. The competition is open to the public if you are interested in stopping by and cheering on the King’s High School team!
