The City of Glen Cove Parks & Recreation Dept., in partnership with US Sports Institute, will offer two exciting fall programs for local youth.
Sports Squirts, for children ages 3-5, is a fun way to introduce children to a variety of sports such as soccer, tee-ball, basketball, lacrosse and hockey, as well as fun playground games. All activities promote hand-eye coordination, movement, balance and most importantly – fun!
The 2013 Fall Sports Squirts program will be offered as an after-school program on Wednesday afternoons from Sept. 18 through Oct. 30 (seven sessions). Sports Squirts will be held at John Maccarone Memorial (City) Stadium from 4– 5 p.m. The fee is $105 per child.
First Play Tennis is geared towards players who are of beginner to intermediate level and will teach children the basic fundamentals of forehand, backhand, volley, serve and rallying, as well as court movement, shot selection and footwork. The enthusiastic coaches follow USTA guidelines and curriculum. Instruction is in small groups, not individual, and players are required to supply their own racquet. Sessions will be held at the Stanco Park courts at the Glen Cove Golf Course on Sundays from Sept. 15 through Oct. 27 (seven sessions). Children ages 5-7 will attend the 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. session; ages 8 -10 will attend the 1:45 to 3:15 p.m. session and ages 11-14 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. The Tennis Clinic program fee is only $100 for the one-hour 5- to 7-year-old session and $145 for the one-and-a-hour sessions for ages 8-14.
These programs promise to provide a learning experience for your child in a fun environment. Space is limited, so enroll today. Glen Cove residency is not required for these unique programs.
