P.A.R.K.’s Athletic Center’s three full-size basketball courts, weight room, and dance floor are hot spots for students completing their academic hour. The basketball courts are not only used for basketball, but for volleyball, dodge ball and field day events. There are tournaments that take place during the summer program among the students.
The weight room is a favorite of many of the program’s athletes and health buffs. Treadmills, elliptical and toning machines, as well as, free-weights make it possible for everyone to stay get in and stay in shape.
Students get a great workout in on the dance floor while exercising to dance videos or participating in an aerobics or Zumba class. All of these areas in the Athletic Center play a part in the ‘body’ component of how P.A.R.K. reaches kids; mentally, physically and spiritually.
The Athletic Center is not only for the use of the students who attend P.A.R.K., but it is often rented by outside sources. For example, (AAU Amateur Athletic Union) basketball tournaments are often held at P.A.R.K. along with other events.
