Sports and recreation classes offer opportunities for youth and adults to stay active and have some fun.

After school and weekends are the perfect time to learn a new sport or build skills in your favorite one. Kids enrolled in Kids Center after school are walked to their classes and receive class vouchers depending on how many days they attend.

Adults can participate in leagues and take dance classes.
