It’s here! The Spring 2015 edition of the Frisco Fun Guide landed in mailboxes and has been posted online. Don’t let the name “Spring” fool you. Classes begin in January, with selections available every month throughout spring. Residents and non-residents of all ages may register for programs offered through Frisco Parks and Recreation.
If you haven’t yet taken advantage of a class, camp or special event offered by Frisco Parks and Recreation, check out our preview of great offerings this season. Some classes fill up quickly, so you’ll want to submit your registration right away!
Possibly the most popular courses outlined in the Frisco Fun Guide are Youth programs. These classes offer kids the opportunity to try something new for 4-6 weeks at a reasonable rate. Do you wonder if your little one is ready for a ballet class? Or if your energy-filled kiddo could benefit from Tae Kwon Do?
The short-term courses offered by Frisco Parks and Rec are a great (and affordable) way to expose your child to a variety of activities over the course of the year. Along the way, you may see a special spark in their eyes about a particular activity.
The eligible age range varies by course, with most classes offering options for age 3 and up.
Fitness (e.g. Young Yogis, Zumba Kids)
Arts (e.g. Drawing, Painting, Mixed Media)
Education (e.g. Mad Science, Learn the ABC’s, Babysitting)
Personal Enrichment (e.g. Cooking, Chess)
Recreation (e.g. Tae Kwon Do)
Music (e.g. Kindermusik, Guitar)
Dance (e.g. Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Preschool)
Youth Athletics Programs introduce your child to the fundamentals of a particular sport or athletic interest. There are several new programs available this year, focusing on agility, speed and flexibility. These courses are great options for beginners, as well as early middle school students preparing for FISD Athletics. Example courses include:
The Dallas Stars Skating Academy
Premier Junior Golf Academy
Total Dodgeball and Agility Games
Youth Tennis, offered by the Frisco Tennis School, utilizes the USTA Quickstart tennis format, making tennis easier to learn. With small courts and lower nets, kids are able to play points sooner. Classes are available for 2, 3 or 4 days per week, for ages 3-18. Students who are more advanced may enroll in Competition or Academy Level classes.
Aquatics programs provide swimming lessons (both group and private) for age 6 months old through adults. There is something for every level of swimmer, whether you’re a first-time swimmer or you’re ready for FriscoFun’s Red Cross Lifeguard course! Classes are indoors, and not dependent upon the weather or season.
Frisco Parks and Rec offers a wide variety of courses for adults. Maybe you want to jump start your post-holiday weight loss with a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) class. Or perhaps you’ve always wanted to try Pilates, but you’re not ready to join a club. Find a day and time that works for your schedule, and make some new friends while getting in shape.
In addition to Fitness classes, Adult Programs include Dance, Personal Enrichment, Recreation and Art.
Looking for something other than a treadmill or group exercise to stay in shape? Join a Competitive or Recreational league. Options include Tennis, Flag Football, Softball, and Kickball.
Spring Break Camps
It’s not too soon to make plans for your kids’ Spring Break! How about a Rock Climbing camp, or an Art Camp? Camps are offered Monday-Friday, and may assist working parents who need activities for their children over the school break.
