Campo Verde band program encompasses 300 members which consists of three concert bands, one jazz band, marching band, winter drumline, and two United Sound chapters. Our band program is award earning. The Coyote Pride Marching Band marches in the 2019 London New Year’s parade. They also hold the 3A AZMBA championship title for 2021 and 2019. This year, The Coyote Pride will be marching in the 2022 Pearl Harbor parade in Honolulu, HI. The indoor percussion ensemble is the WGAZ 2015 Regional A Champion and the WGAZ 2017 Scholastic A champion Winter guard holds the WGAZ 2016, 2017, and 2918 Regional A champion titles. All of this is possible with the executive leadership of Matt Kozacek and the amazing kids and parents who are part of the program. We would not be able to do all of this without generous donations and time from our community at large.
New to running? DOWNLOAD our ZERO to 5K program - Many newcomers to running become discouraged by the difficulty associated with the activity because they start too fast and push too hard. Their bodies rebel and they wind up miserable, wondering why anyone would possibly want to run in the first place. The Zero to 5K program has been specifically designed to instill a love of running and ends with participating in your first timed 5K.
We’re here to help you achieve your goal(s), be it your first 5K, improving your run, or simply offering a resource where you can run with a group that is designed to help each other stay motivated. You should ease into your 5K training plan gradually. In fact, the program we provide is less of a running regimen than a walking and jogging program. The idea is to transform you from a non-runner, getting you to begin running a 5K ( or 3.1 miles) and on a regular basis in just 4 weeks.
It’s easy to get impatient, and you may feel tempted to skip ahead in the program, but hold yourself back. Don’t try to do more, even if you feel you can. If, on the other hand, you find the program too strenuous, just stretch it out. Don’t feel pressured to continue faster than you’re able. Repeat weeks if needed and move ahead only when you feel you’re ready.
