Description

The MYA City Summer Program will be a health and wellness summer program with track & field as its core. This program aims to initially impact 300 3rd - 8th grade girls and boys by developing stronger physical abilities, athletic confidence, and an appetite to learn the joys of physical fitness and wellness. This will be achieved through a blend of informal play, technical instruction, and fun! The goal of the program is for our children to walk away with a renewed sense of confidence, healthier habits, and a joy for the sport of track & field. In addition to learning the basics of track & field, student athletes will be exposed to a learning adventure that will combine math, reading, nutrition, and character development. The MYA City Summer Program will be supported by community partners such as U of M College of Health Science, Tiger Bites Nutrition, and the Memphis City Parks.

The program will have hubs set up in select Memphis City Parks in the communities of North Memphis, South Memphis, and East Memphis.

Eligibility. Children in grades 3-8 in the Memphis Metro area, with a focus on the under-served communities in North and South Memphis. 

Schedule. Campers will meet 3 days per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays beginning June 21 and ending August 14 with the Ed Murphey Track Classic. 

Locations/Pickup & Drop off. The program will operate out of Christian Brothers High School but will have pick ups in communities of North Memphis, South Memphis, and East Memphis.

*Parents will be able to drop off at each pickup location as early as 8:00 am for the 9:00 am pick up. Buses will return by 5:00 pm and parents can pick up as late as 6:00 pm from each pickup location.

Supplements. In addition to learning the basics of Track & Field, student-athletes will be exposed to a learning adventure that will combine math, reading, nutrition, character development, and extracurriculars. This will be supported by community partners such as U of M College of Health Science, Tiger Bites Nutrition, and the Memphis City Parks.
