RocKids Summer Sessions will be starting soon. It's a perfect way to introduce young, energetic kids ages 6-10 to the fun and challenging sport of rock climbing.

Progressions will be provided to challenge those who have achieved certain skill levels. Fee is $35 members/$45 non-members.
“I just tried the new class CIZE Live last night. I loved it!” Kat Hibbard says upon our first meeting. “I’m not a dancer so it was perfect for me to have the moves broken down.” It is immediately clear that Kat loves group exercise classes as she goes on to talk about the classes that she enjoys.

Meet Gage Burkhardt, a twelve-year-old Courts Plus tennis player who has played since he was five years old. While some kids his age would rather spend their mornings sleeping, Gage is up early busy with early-morning private lessons at 6:45 a.m. twice each week when he meets with Tennis Pro Greg Spencer at Courts Plus. With a goal of playing varsity high school tennis, it was Gage himself who requested the lessons.
Space is still available in Courts Plus Summer Camps, which offer fun for all ages! Our camps pack fitness, fun and a classic summer camp experience in centrally located Plunkett Park for preschoolers and the older set. These camps are tailor made for kids who enjoy physical activity.
