Chase Park "Back to School Sports Bash" scores big!

We spent last Sunday afternoon at a really great event at Chase Park.  The Back-to-School Sports Bash featured a well rounded schedule of sports and activities.  We Got Game and the Chase Park Advisory Council did an excellent job hosting and running the schedule.  Maybe a small "sports bash" can be in the future at Winnemac Park?

Bouncy obstacle course!

The event featured theater class, face-painting, kids fitness challenges, "Language Stars", scooter skills and more. The kids mostly played on the fields and the tennis courts for hockey and basketball.  I suppose it would be easy to do tennis too.  All the equipment was portable and easy to set up.

Basketball skills and games
Aldermans Ameya Pawar, James Cappleman, Representative Greg Harris, Margaret O'Connor (Vice President Chase Park Advisory Council) and Park Supervisor Katie Fearon-Peon greeted attendees and said a few words.  It's amazing what Chase park has done with programming and community support in the last a few years.
The organizers and elected officials say a few words.

Thanks to all those involved in the Back to School Bash. Our kids are excited to join new sports!
