Childcare Girls Cheering

Girls on the Run was established in 1996 in Charlotte, North Carolina, with a team of 13 brave girls. Twenty-six girls came the next season, then 75, and the program continued to grow. In 2000, Girls on the Run International, a 501(c)(3) organization, was born. With the help of over 100,000 volunteers, 200 local councils serve more than 200,000 girls annually in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Girls on the Run hosts more than 350 end-of-season 5K events across the United States, making the Girls on the Run 5K series the largest in the country.

If you are a Rec Pass holder and have a group of people who would like to play volleyball, give us a call and reserve a time to play.

What do you get when you combine badminton, pingpong, and tennis? Well, you get Pickleball of course! Two to Four people can play a match at once. Players use a paddle to hit a perforated ball across a net and try to stay in bounds. Pickleball is open to all members of any skill level! Groups cycle in and out of matches on particularly active days. Pickleball takes place in Gym A on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 2pm to 4pm.
