Youth Summer Recreational/Educational Program
In many neighborhoods, places that serve the community don’t exist anymore. A quality recreation center is a valuable asset.
The Athletic Factory has moved into a new location at 1517 10th St. in Port Huron, MI. 48060 to provide a recreational safe haven for the youth in our community, provide SAT/ACT prep, and offer an area where gaming (XBox One and PS4) will be available for our youth, in the summer of 2021.
The summer program will provide open gym time for middle school and high school kids. This will be offered from June 21, 2021 to August 27, 2021, Monday through Friday 1pm to 5pm, and Saturday from 1pm to 4pm. Basketball helps our youth stay active while learning about hard work, sportsmanship, dedication, and respect for themselves and others. They also have the opportunity to interact with positive mentors and have lots of fun.
We also want to encourage our youth to achieve academic success. Inspiring a desire to succeed in academics will help better prepare students for college. Through our partnership with Teachers Pet Tutoring, we are planning to offer a 7 week SAT/ACT prep course. Students have very hectic schedules and the transition to college can be a rocky ride. With the right preparation, the road from high school to college can be a smooth ride. Providing SAT/ACT prep in the summer will allow students more time to focus.
It’s important for our youth in the community to have an outlet as well. We will offer an area where gaming (Xbox One, PS4, etc.) will be available. Good quality video games can offer lots of benefits to our youth. They can provide a fun and social form of entertainment, encourage teamwork and cooperation when played with others, make kids feel comfortable with technology, increase self-confidence and self-esteem as they master games, provide points of common interest and opportunities for socialization, and improve hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. The gaming will be available for a nominal cost of $5 per week, per kid. PLEASE FILL OUT THE BELOW SHOWN REGISTRATION FORM(S)!!
