Open Hours for the children at South Franklin

Open hours is an after school program for the kids to come and hangout with awesome volunteers. When the weather is good, they get to play kickball, soccer, basketball or other games outside. When the weather keeps the kids indoors the Community Center is available to accommodate many activities. The favorites for the kids are pool, ping pong, or cards. On some days there are structured games like BINGO or a guest speaker for the children to have good role models. It's always a fun time at the Community Center and we invite as many volunteers to attend open hours as possible. To sign-up to volunteer, click on the link to the right.

To see more pictures "Like" us on Facebook and check out all the wonderful activities the children can participate in. Keep checking our blog for pictures coming soon from the Utah Flash clinic on March 25th.

Volunteers wanted for soccer season

Our first of the year soccer season is approaching and to prepare for it we are looking for volunteers to coach, co-coach, referee, and come to the games to help.
This is the schedule for the season:
Meeting for all volunteers March 9th at 6:15pm
Scrimmage is March 26 at the Boulders
Practice 1-2 times  a week beginning the week of the 28th in March
No game will be held that Saturday due to LDS Conference
Games every Saturday starting April 9th and ending May 28th
Coaches need to have at least one co-coach that speaks Spanish if they don’t themselves and they have to be over 18. 
You can also be a referee which would include coming to Saturday games when you can for as many games as you can. We’ll have a google doc with the schedule for you to look at and sign up for when it gets closer.
For others who want to volunteer but not to coach or ref, we need someone on Fridays to paint the fields and on Saturdays to help set-up, take down, keep score, take pictures and other things like that.
Here is the google doc for everyone to sign up:
We need lots of coaches, refs and all the help we can get! I hope you can help out this season! It's so much fun and great experience!

Valentines Day Tiny Tunes

 Our Tiny Tunes class was so exciting! Kids were singing songs about giving out Valentines. They read books about friendship. They danced with ribbons and made cute Valentines card flowers. This class, which is offered at the Community Center Fridays at 10:30am, has been a special bonding experience for parents and their kids. They learn new songs and games to be able to play through out the week. Everyone is welcome to come to this class with their little kids. The kids really seem to enjoy it and the teachers are the best!
