Sizzling summer fun at Westlake Rec

The heat is on. Summer has presented itself with plenty of warm weather and nice days. The Westlake Recreation Center has the programs and activities for you to beat the heat and get inside. Some of these programs might have you sweating but it is fun and a good workout. Others will teach you something new. Check out our Rec Gazette for additional programming an further information. For now here are several different activities we have coming up soon.

Soccer is a growing sport and more and more people are catching on. Westlake Soccer Camp will take place the week of August 2. Running Monday to Friday this camp is geared for kids ages 5-14. Get the chance to improve your skills and receive hands-on instruction from coaches and players.

The kids will need somewhere to go during the day while you’re at work. The Westlake Rec can help out. Starting the week of August 2 and running Monday through Friday, our Summer Day Camp will keep the kids busy, entertained and they will enjoy a field trip during the week. Day Camp is for children in grades 1-6. Spots are filling up quick so make sure to sign up before it’s too late.

Give yourself the chance to increase your flexibility, coordination, balance, and strengthen your core muscles while having fun. The Beginner’s Belly Dance and Continuing Belly Dance classes will start Monday August 2. Don’t miss out on the fun learning experiences of Beginners Ballroom and Swing Dance, either. These two classes will start August 4.

Looking for a challenging workout? Well look no further. HardCORE will make you sweat and have you breathing hard. This intense cardio/core workout is a combo of exercises that will keep you jumping, pushing, twisting and moving the entire workout. Classes start August 3 and 5.

Just a reminder: Starting the week of August 9, the Rec Center will be shut down for its annual maintenance. During this time members can stay in motion and use Rocky River’s or Fairview’s facilities. If you would like any further information please call the number below.
