Plus, they will be exposed to the falling and throwing techniques of Aikido as well as Japanese Jujitsu.
For those students who cannot get enough basketball. Our goal is to teach each player about the game and provide them with equal amounts of playing time while having FUN! We offer leagues for pre-school through 8th grade.
Our degreed and certified instructor Noreen will teach your 7- to 12-year-old kids the importance of balance, flexibility, and strength through yoga. Share this ancient practice with them in a fun, age-appropriate environment.

Additional Vacation Day/Week Camps are offered throughout the year based on the days/weeks both North and South Colonie School Districts are on school break.
Expose your second – fifth grader to the basics of baseball. Campers will learn skills such as throwing, catching, fielding, hitting and running bases. We’ll use drills and demonstrations in a fun setting. Plus, campers will have access to batting cages and swim at the Colonie Town Pool.

Seasonal Youth Recreational Programs include Parents Night Out, Crazy Relays, Youth Boot Camp, Youth Boxing Boot Camp, sports clinics, one-day tournaments, and more.
Youth Recreational Leagues vary seasonally. Leagues run for basketball, flag football, and indoor lacrosse. Basketball Leagues span about an 8-week period for each league, with four separate leagues offered throughout the year. We also offer a basketball league for individuals with special needs, “Shooting Stars” in the first quarter of each year.
Our gymnasium houses a 72-foot long enclosed baseball batting tunnel. Rental times are limited to weekend mornings between 7:00 and 9:00 AM, and rental schedules should be arranged by team coaches with our Recreation Manager. While players are batting, coaches can utilize the remainder of the area to work on infield play, pitching and other fundamentals.
The newest addition to our school-year offerings is our Home School Physical Education program. This is a structured PE class for school-aged children that includes an hour of sports in the gymnasium, and an hour of swimming (swim instruction and games in the activity pool.) This program, as are many of our recreational programs, is appropriate for children with special needs.
