When can I bring the program to my school?
The program is available throughout the 2016-17 school year and we will work with you to pick out the best day to bring Barracuda Math Class to your door!

How does it work?
After we work with you to pick the perfect date for our visit, the San Jose Barracuda will bring a special guest host into your classroom for an hour of fun! During the program, a Barracuda player or staff member will teach the students about hockey and how math is connected to the game. For grades 1-6, we will also split the class into two teams for a fun round of Math Jeopardy with the game customized to that grade's level of learning! For kindergarten we will teach students the game of hockey through shape recognition!
Before we go, each student will receive Barracuda schools supplies to use during the school year. If available, students will also have the opportunity to take a class picture with a Barracuda player!
