Summer is here, and CYS Sports and Fitness is currently registering the following programs and activities for the summer: Camps (to include leisure sports); clubs & racquets; softball; lacrosse; volleyball; wrestling; basketball; soccer; golf; boy’s and girl’s fitness; bowling; cheerleading; and wrestling.
Due to the popularity of “The Hunger Games,” the archery league may fill quickly. The league starts June 20 and runs every Thursday until Aug. 1. All equipment and instructions are provided along with a t-shirt for $65. Registration is for ages 9 to 15.
Dodgeball will be offered for the first time as a 6-week league, beginning June 25 and every Tuesday through July 30. All equipment and instructions are provided along with a t-shirt for $45. Registration is for ages 9 to 18.
Summer fitness programs designed to reach a wide range of age groups, to include running and weight training, will be conducted–free–from June to August. These include diverse program offers for elementary through high school ages for any child interested in having fun and learning the fundamentals of lifetime activities.
Cheerleading is a fun program and is being offered for the first time as a summer camp. The camps will be in July for both bantam (age 7-10) and junior (age 11-15) age divisions.
Another successful program is wrestling. Two camps will develop grapplers in the fundamentals of this international Olympic sport. The camp in July will be held at the Stuttgart High School for ages 6-9 and ages 10-18. Registration is currently ongoing.
All participating youth must have an active sports physical on file with a current CYS registration.
