The Winter Gym Program is underway at Byrns-Darden Elementary. The school’s gym will be open Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for basketball free play. This gym is offered in addition to the city’s three community centers and is staffed with a supervisor. This program is one of many listed in the Department’s Recreation Guide.
A partnership with the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System enables Parks and Recreation to offer this facility to users free of charge but every user must register on site. Children under the age of 13 must also be accompanied by a responsible adult. Participants are asked to use the new entrance to the school on Peachers Mill Road.
This program will continue through April 3, 2008. The gym is closed on school holidays and breaks. If you would like more information about this program, please call the Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department at 645-7476.
Burt-Cobb offers youth basketball league and jazzercise
Children ages ten and older who are not playing on a school team this year have the opportunity to play in a basketball league at Burt-Cobb Community Center this fall and winter. Practice and games are held each Thursday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and the league is free for participants with a Community Center I.D. card.
If you’re looking for a way to jazz up your exercise habits this fall and winter, then you’ll want to check out the Jazzercise classes at Burt-Cobb Community Center.
Jazzercise combines elements of jazz dance into aerobic exercise and classes consist of a series of dance routines set to popular music. Yoga, Pilates, cardio kickboxing and other fitness styles are incorporated into the routines.
Classes are led by Nicole Crozier and the cost is $30 per month for unlimited classes or $8.00 per class for walk-ins. For more details call the Burt-Cobb Community Center at 552-1263.
