From the day we first opened our doors 65 years ago, athletics have been an important part of who we are as a Club. Many of our alumni have gone on to excel at the high school and college level in sports they first learned to play here. Athletics remain an important component of who we are today. Keeping kids active and occupied with athletics teaches discipline and develops leadership skills while encouraging physical fitness and teamwork.
All our athletic programs are designed to accommodate the beginner as well as the experienced athlete. The overall emphasis is on sportsmanship, health and having fun. Our facilities include two full sized gymnasiums, a soccer field and two baseball diamonds. Our professional staff and our volunteer coaches stress participation first, teaching our youngsters the joy of the game.
