SUMMER PROGRAMS

——————————————

Austin Parks and Recreation (APARD)

We will present instruction in two hour segments, two days a week  (MW or TTH) at each contracted Recreation Center.  There are 22 Recreation Centers in the City of Austin Parks and Recreation department!

APARD Program Directors are reviewing available programs (of which we are only one) and making selections for their summer  day camps through the APARD Lending Library.  We are making every effort to be scheduled close to where our school programs are being presented so that mentors can work close to home.

Following exposure to our  methods of instruction,  we will provide a competitive experience at  an Indoor Recreation Center, to be determined.

August 2, a Friday,  has been designated as our APARD Tournament Day.   We will play on  Teams of FIVE, following our Fabulous Fives format.     4 will play on the court at a time.  Substitution a player on each point scored (by either team).   One mentor will be assigned as a player/coach to each team.  We will utilize an indoor venue to avoid the heat of the day.
