June is here with fun

Pee Wee Olympians having a ball

June marks a start of the summer and the launching of a significant amount of programming at the Westlake Recreation Center. So much so that it would require an entire page to list it all in the paper. Keep in mind there are plenty more of this programs that are not mentioned. Check out our website or program book for the programs not mentioned. Here are some programs that will keep you busy in the mean time.

If you’re over the age of 19 and were hoping to work on your tennis skills, this is the class for you. Beginner Adult Tennis Lessons will start Saturday sessions on June 5. This class will focus on developing fundamental skills or skills that have previously been learned. Make sure to bring your own racquet and water bottle.

The weather is nice and this time of the year is golf season. We have just the class for the season. We are offering a Short Game of Golf class that will cover pitching, chipping, putting and sand traps. You will need to bring a 9-iron or wedge to the first class. Class starts June 5. Don’t miss out on a chance to learn some tips to lower your golf score.

Here’s something fun for the kids. On June 6 at 12 p.m. the Rec Center will host its annual Pee Wee Olympics. The kids will play games and make a run for the gold. Awards will be handed out to all our Olympic participants and refreshments will be served afterwards. Bring your camera and get some action shots of your little Olympic athlete.

Learn the ins and outs of model airplanes from three-time world champion Bill Shaffer. Bill will cover what makes airplanes fly, show you some of the best built model airplanes in the world and will show you how to assemble a model plane. This program is for those ages eight and up. The fun will begin June 6 at 11 a.m.

The start of the week of June 7 marks the launch of many golf lessons. We have lessons for kids, beginners, intermediates, and ladies. Check our program book for further information or check our website if you are interested in taking one of these golf lessons.
