Kid Zone Sports


Kids enjoying various levels of soccer will have an opportunity to build skills, learn elements of fair play and teamwork and, most of all, have fun playing the game they love! With our skilled staff, this program will be a great fit for kids wanting to try soccer for the first time as well as an experienced player who wants to continue to get better.


Calling all hoopers… No matter your kids‘ skill levels, they will be able to develop the fundamentals of basketball as well as have fun playing a variety of games. Dribbling, shooting and passing are just the start as they will enjoy fun basketball mini-games to sharpen their skills!

Team Sports:

Our Friday’s only option will be for kids to explore new team sports that they may not have tried before. There will be a mix of sports that they vote on to play and new ones they may end up loving even more!

Kid Zone Arts

Paint & Clay:

Kids will have opportunities to create every day! Exploring different painting, modeling techniques and learning will be fun for kids of all skill levels in the arts.


We all love music. Kids will have the opportunity to explore their talents in a variety of mediums. They can sing, dance and/or even learn how to create their own music in our new recording studio!


Our Fridays-only option will be for kids to learn all about photography! They will be able to learn basic skills, but also be able to do fun projects as a team.
