Summer Program Kicks off with Baseball

The 2019 Opportunity on Deck summer programming kicked off May 30th with baseball at Linnan Park in Clive. Boys and girls in grades first through sixth will learning baseball skills from area role models each Tuesday and Thursday through July 2.

Our athletes won’t have much time to rest after baseball as flag football starts July 16th. Meeting at the same location as baseball (Linnan Park in Clive), flag football is also for boys and girls in grades first through sixth. We are excited to teach our athletes some flag football skills while also talking with them about community, teamwork, dedication, good character and healthy living habits. Flag football concludes August 15th.

The last of our summer programming is a summer camp, also at Linnan Park, August 12-16. Summer camp structure is a little different than traditional Opportunity on Deck sports offerings. The camp will meet daily from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and athletes will learn ultimate frisbee, lacrosse, volleyball, karate and a surprise on the final day.

Right now each of our summer offerings is full but we are taking names for the wait list (baseball wait list, flag football wait list, summer camp wait list).

As with all of our offerings, each summer sport is free-of-charge to athletes and families. Starting in 2019, we are now also offering a sack meal at each of our practices for athletes and families.
