Help with designing the plot, planting and picking your own produce in their garden. Flag Football: Members will have the opportunity to learn passing, throwing, catching, and position skills during our flag football program. They will participate in mini-games while utilizing indoor and outdoor facilities to work on their skills in game-like situations.

Teens 13 and up: Shooting Stars: This 8 week long basketball program will focus on intense skills, drills, and game-like situations with the help from local “community stars”. Members from the police department, fire department, school district, and more are here to challenge our members to become better basketball players but also young adults. We also have a strong academic focus to help our members maintain their schoolwork and understanding the importance of academics.

Soccer, Basketball and Volleyball: learn the basics or get in some extra practice. Remember, Club members need to wear gym-friendly shoes to participate in gym activities. Gym shoes & sneakers only! No black soles, heels, Uggs, flip flops, or non-sneaker shoes, please.
