Riverside P.L.A.Y.

Riverside Community Parks Association, Inc. and Riverside Police Foundation are partnering together to bring the youth a variety of sports skills. As an introduction of learning the basic skills children between the ages of 7-13 will have the opportunity to interact with volunteers and police while developing the understanding of basic rules for a variety of multiple sports.



What You Need to Know

Children will be split into small groups for minimal instruction to develop the understanding of a competitive sport. Children will gain the knowledge of how equipment is used and rules for playing the game. All equipment will be provided to learn the basic skills of each sport.

The program is free and will be offered once a week for an hour. The program will vary from 4 weeks to 6 weeks based on the offered sport.

Golf - An outdoor sport played with clubs and a ball hit into a series of holes on a course. The goal is to finish playing the course with the least hits or stokes as possible.

Tennis - A game played on a level court by two or four players, who use rackets to hit a ball back and forth across a low net dividing the court. The objective of the game is to maneuver the ball in such a way that the opponent is not able to play a valid return.

Volleyball - A game played by two opposing teams in which the players use their hands to hit a ball back and forth, over a high net, trying to make the ball touch the court within the opponent’s playing area before it can be returned.

Baseball - A bat and ball game played between two opposing teams that take turns batting and fielding. The objective of the game is for batters to run the bases, advancing to home plate, and to score.
