Welcome to the Java Programming ECA!
You will learn how to complete some basic programs in Java, mastering introductory programming skills. At the end of this ECA season, while you may not be ready to program the next Doom or Fortress, you will understand some basics of how to structure a program, how the Java language is structured, and successfully debug programming challenges.
We will be using the BlueJ programming environment for several reasons: 1) it's free to use and install, 2) it includes some excellent debugging tools, and 3) it is a good place for a beginner to start their journey in computer programming.
Please note: one drawback of BlueJ is that it will NOT run (it is not supported) on tablet devices like the iPad. If you participate in this ECA, you will need to have access to a laptop (Mac, Windows, or Linux/Unix) that has the JRE environment already installed.
This ECA will introduce you to the safe and fun way to enjoy the underwater world: skindiving or snorkeling.
You will learn from a certified, teaching-status PADI Divemaster the safe way to snorkel, and you will learn procedures that will keep you comfortable and safe. Follow the links below for your individual weekly information.
It is important that you review the topics here before your in-water sessions! With the exception of day one, we will not be in a classroom or in a location where we can use our laptops or iPads.
You and your parents must also complete this release and acknowledgement of risk. While snorkel diving is a safe sport, if you engage in activities not taught, or ignore safety procedures which are being taught, you put yourself and others at risk. This form explains those risks and some topics you must understand. PADI REQUIRES you to submit this form to your instructor BEFORE any in-water pool sessions. In other words, if you do not have this signed form in my hands prior to day one, you WILL NOT GET IN THE POOL! This is for your own safety.
This page will have some general advice for all football players, links to specific drills and warmups we'll use, our schedule, our statistics, and other team information.
