February fun at the Westlake Rec Center
January has come and gone and February is here with many opportunities for learning, fun and friends. With the cold weather still surrounding us and no other option but to stay inside, join us for some indoor programs and activities we have to offer you. We have programs for people of all ages, here are some of the events we have coming up:
The Westlake Recreation Center is proud to present Dr. Michael Roizen. Dr. Rozien is a frequent guest on both The Oprah Show and The Dr. Oz Show and will speak at the WHS Performing Arts Center on February 17th at 7:00 p.m. There are still a few tickets remaining for this event. Cost is a non-perishable food item per ticket (max 4) which benefits the City of Westlake’s Assistance Program.
Cure your cabin fever and head on up to the Rec Center for the 6th Grade Ultimate After Hours Bash. The bash will take place Feb. 12th and start at 8:30 p.m. This evening of fun will include games, trivia questions, swimming, basketball and Wii.
This one’s for the girls: Girl Power will encourage, promote and motivate girls to make the most out of their lives. We will talk about health, beauty and fitness. Event will be held Saturday Feb. 13th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for girls ages 10-14.
Dust off those mitts, find the old ball caps and make your way up to the Rec Center for the annual President’s Day Baseball Clinic for kids in grades 3-8. The clinic will be put on by Phil Bova, who is known for his long-standing and successful summer baseball camps. This clinic will focus on hitting, fielding, pitching, and the rules of the game. Players will get hands-on drill work from coach Bova and his staff.
Since school is out on Presidents Day, the Westlake Recreation Center will have a number of programs for the kids: No School Day Camp is for kids in grades K-6. Send your child up to the Rec Center with their brown-bagged lunch, swimsuit, and towel. We will also be offering a Babysitting class for kids ages 11-15. Our famous Presidents Day Beach Party will take place from 12:30-3pm in our Aquatics Center. Listen to music, splash and participate in the Big Kahuna Cannonball Classic. Don’t miss out on the fun.
