Starting Line Up – New Courses to Share!

We’ve been working on fantastic courses to support you and your students as you continue to learn, grow, and achieve. We’re happy to announce our release of 9 new courses! Fortunately, there are many choices of themes around the number 9: 9 squares in tic-tac-toe, a cat has 9 lives, and a group of 9 is called a nonad, which is new information to me.

It also happens there are 9 playing positions in the United States’  favorite pastime, baseball! So, in celebration of summer, we’re proud to present you with 9 outstanding courses matched with 9 fielding positions of our baseball team.

Here’s the starting lineup, and each course’s walk-up music!
