Sports & Recreation Programs

1.

Boxing & Fitness

ages 10 and up

Boxing & Fitness provides a positive outlet for young people where stress can be relieved. Hitting a punching bag produces a response in the body that helps to relieve tension. Boxing is a workout that requires your whole body to be present, including your mind. The mind-body connection learned through Boxing can transfer over to other sports and activities. The goal of RPAL's Boxing & Fitness program is to engage at-promise youth to develop emotion-regulation skills that help them cope with triggers and conflict, decreasing the risk for aggressive behavior and delinquency.

2.

6.

Judo & Fitness

ages 7 - 17

Judo is an excellent activity for young people because it builds healthy and strong muscles, improves cardio, and lowers cholesterol. Participation in judo can have a reduced risk of obesity, heart disease, and osteoporosis, even as youth transition from childhood and become adults. Judo can also help develop values like respect, discipline, and perseverance. The practice of judo promotes teamwork, leadership, and self-confidence; it can also help prevent issues such as bullying, harassment, aggression, and discrimination.

7.

Tennis

ages 7 - 12

Through the game of tennis young people learn skills that contribute to good hand-eye coordination, agility, balance, speed, and reaction time; however, tennis is so much more than just a game. This fantastic sport also teaches young people important life skills like self-confidence, accepting responsibility, problem-solving, sportsmanship, mental strength, dedication, social skills, strategy, and honesty.

8.

Flag Football

ages 7 - 13

Flag football is one of the fastest growing youth sports, currently on its way to becoming a college sanctioned sport. Flag football is a game that comes with many physical and emotional benefits. Players run, jump, quickly change direction, and stop and start, which improves cardiovascular health. Practice drills, complex running routes, and defensive techniques all encourage speed, strength, and stamina. Flag football teaches young people accountability, leadership, and the impact of positive sportsmanship. Every position has a purpose and to execute a play successfully, each individual needs to fulfill their responsibility while working together—a skill that’s valuable both on and off the field.
