Keep yourself busy this fall

Once the warm weather is gone, the cool breeze of fall comes. Leaves fall and so do the temperatures. People tend to move inside to seek shelter from the cool days. Don't let yourself become a couch potato. Keep yourself busy. The Westlake Recreation Center has a program for you to keep you moving.

If your child likes gymnastics you should check out our gymnastic classes. We offer a Tiny Turners class for children ages 7-10. This class will build confidence, coordination, flexibility and strength, and your child will learn the basics of gymnastics in a fun, non-competitive atmosphere. Classes start Nov. 24.

Do you love decorating? The Westlake Recreation Center is calling all amateur house decorators. Take part in our Holiday House Decorating Contest. Decorate your house and yard with lights, inflatables and Christmas scenes. This contest is open to all Westlake residents. Test out your decorating skills against your neighbors and fellow Westlake residents. Contest will start Nov. 26, so sign up and take part in the festive decorating. 

Since there is no school Nov. 25, why not have some fun and do something? Sign up for the Holiday Coed Dodgeball Tournament for grades 7-8. Grab your friends and head up to the Rec to sign up for a day of competitive fun. You’ll need at least 6 people on a team and a maximum of 8 players per team. Game play will start at 10:00 a.m. on Nov. 25.

Don’t let those Black Friday shopping deals escape. We can help you out if you need somewhere to put the kids while you shop. Drop your kids off at the Rec Center for the Black Friday Shopping Camp. The building will be open at 5:00a.m. only for dropping the kids off. Breakfast will be provided. Kids will need to pack their lunch, swim suit and towel. All children will need to be picked up by noon. 

If you're not shopping the day after Thanksgiving, you and your child should sign up and head to the Rec Center for the Parent/Child Wii Bowling Tournament. On Nov. 27 at 12:00 p.m. you and your child will have the opportunity to play against other parent/child couples in Wii Bowling. Bring your “A” game and get ready to play against some tough competition.
