"TEEN CORE"  Pilot Program Kickoff - League Details!

Our inaugural "Teen Core" league gets underway soon!  Round up your friends and come be a part of the fun, while helping shape where the program goes from here.  Details and registration below!

WHEN: FRIDAYS - September 15 through October 6 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm.

WHERE: Appleton Memorial Park (specific location within park TBD)

WHO: Teens (boys AND girls) entering grades 7 through 9 in the fall of 2017 (approx ages 12-15yo)

COST: $20 Residents  ($45 Non-Residents)

FORMAT: School's out for the week!  Get your weekend started right and join us for some games, some competition, and some post game fun with friends!  Games will begin at 4pm, and will wrap up by about 5:15pm, after which the participants will be treated to a quick meal with a chance to hangout and relive the fun from the field!

  • League will meet on 4 straight Fridays, from September 15 through October 6.
  • Program will wrap up by 6pm each night, so participants can still enjoy other Friday night activities (HS football games, night at the movies, etc)
  • League will feature a different sport / activity each week for 4 weeks! Some new, and some some traditional, so an open mind is important!
  • Teams will be formed by mixing up the participants each week, but friends will have an opportunity to stick together in most cases.
  • Games will be led by young adults who will be game facilitators, site supervisors, and referees.
  • All games will have simple, easy to grasp rules that will get the kids playing quickly, fairly, and with a focus on the FUN!
  • ACTIVITIES WILL INCLUDE - a 4 week mix of some traditional sports (softball, soccer, flag football) as well as activities we hope are brand new to most (foot golf, capture the flag, ultimate frisbee). The participants will help decide what we do next by voting for their favorites each week!
  • All registrations will include an exclusive "Teen Core" giveaway item! (TBD...shirt, water bottle, ballcap, etc)
  • POST GAME MEAL PROVIDED each week! (pizza, subs, etc).

- This 4 week session will be an introduction to a program that we hope will grow and expand over the coming year, to include a mix of LEARN TO PLAY clinics, organized leagues that allow kids a chance to CONTINUE TO PLAY the sports and activities they love, and DISCOVER events that will introduce kids to brand new activities and experiences!
