Parents and kids interested in youth sports can join a free day of play Nov. 2 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to celebrate the Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department’s expanded “Phoenix Plays” youth sports programs for children ages 3 to 12.
The free celebration at the city’s Rose Mofford Sports Complex, 9833 N. 25th Ave., will offer free sports clinics, demonstrations and information booths on fitness and wellness, as well as games and prizes. The event is part of the city’s FitPHX initiative.
Age-specific sports clinics will offer families a chance to sample the department’s Phoenix Plays instructional sports programs and pick up a few pointers. There also will be a hands-on sample of our instructional sports clinics for kids ages 6 and under, which feature professional instructors experienced in teaching physical skills development to small children. The Nov. 2 event will feature clinics for all ages in volleyball, t-ball, basketball, soccer, flag football and pickleball.
Families also can attend just to have some fun with games and inflatable bouncers, and watch demonstrations featuring older kids with more developed skills. All attendees will get a voucher allowing them to sign up early for the winter/spring season, which begins in January.
More information on the department’s youth sports is available online at www.phoenix.gov/parks in the Sports section or by calling 602-534-9440.
