Youth sports opportunities abound in summer

With the end of school year approaching, a host of sports-related activities are available for children in the community.

Craig Parks and Rec is offering swimming lessons for children from 3 to 15 years old. Registration is now open for the two-week sessions beginning June 3. Four sessions will be held in the summer, from Monday through Thursday.

Youth tennis lessons will take place from June 3 to 27. Children ages 8 to 12 are invited to learn, but they must bring their own rackets. Class size is limited.

Youth soccer also is accepting registrations for its summer season, which begins June 17. The leagues for 5- to 15-year-olds will play Tuesdays and Thursdays through Aug. 1 at Woodbury Sports Complex.

For all youth opportunities, call 826-2029 for more information.

Football camp signups next week

Summer football camp at Moffat County High School will do its registration for seventh- to ninth-grade boys from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday at the MCHS football field.

The Bulldog Maker Football Camp, creating the next generation of Moffat County football players, runs from May 28 through the end of July and includes weight-training, speed-training, conditioning and 7-on-7 football. The package also includes Under Armour workout gear.

Campers will receive a schedule for the summer on registration day.

Water aerobics classes at city pool for the summer

Residents looking to get a unique kind of exercise can attend water aerobics in either shallow or deep water this summer.

Water aerobics offer a low-impact form of exercise, making it easier on bones and joints while still offering resistance to improve fitness and flexibility.

The classes run from June 3 to Aug. 15 and will be at the Craig Swimming Complex, 605 Washington St. Shallow-water classes will be Mondays and Wednesdays during the summer from noon to 1 p.m. and from 6 to 7 p.m. Deep water will be Tuesdays and Thursdays at the same times.

Those interested can sign up for an entire session ($45), both sessions ($80) or choose to attend individual classes, which will cost $4 each. For more information, call Craig Parks and Recreation at 826-2029.
