Youth Programs

Our goal is to help keep kids active, so we offer various sports programs for children age 4 through 14. You can expect things like football, basketball, soccer, volleyball and many more activities. We work on introducing children to the basics of the sport and further skill development. We also have some activities just for fun like bowling and fishing. Check out our current brochure to see which activities are available this season.

Family Programs

If you want an activity the whole family can get involved in check out our family section for some ideas. Tae Kwon Do, a lazy triathlon, pickleball or the bike rodeo are just a few things we offer for Families.

Adult Programs

It's not just the kids we like to see active, so why not get a group of adults together (women's, men's or coed) and have fun in our softball, volleyball or basketball leagues. Check out our current brochure to see which activities are available this season.

Gymnastics


We have been offering non-competitive gymnastics classes for boys and girls ages 2-18 successfully for the past several years with help from our fantastic instructor Miss Olga. Kids are taught fundamental body positions and basic techniques to help them develop muscular control and coordination, as well as a sense of balance with physical and mental confidence. Check out class times in our current brochure.

Aquatics


Whether your child is a beginning swimmer, a competitive swimmer or interested in becoming a lifeguard, the Recreation Department is able to help you keep their aquatic skills up all year long with access to an outdoor and indoor facility. Check out class times in our current brochure.
