MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – The Mount Vernon Department of Recreation is accepting registration for a series of summer sports clinics for children.
Beginning July 8, and running through the middle of August, there will be will be soccer, basketball and track and field camps for children as old as 17-years-old.
The soccer clinic will be held in partnership with White Plains-based Backyard Sports. There will be three, two-week sessions for children of all ages at Hutchinson Field. The first session is from July 8 through July 18; the second is from July 22 to Aug. 1 and the last is from Aug. 5 through Aug. 15. The program – which costs $120 per session - will run from Monday through Thursday from 3:30 to 6 p.m. each day.
For those who don’t want to take to the soccer field, there will be a track and field clinic on the same dates and at the same time at the Mount Vernon High School. Children between the ages of 7 and 12 can learn the basics of running track before they get to high school.
Lastly, there will be a six-week basketball clinic at the Mount Vernon High School for children between 7 and 17-years-old. The program is designed to introduce players to the fundamentals of basketball from dribbling to passing and shooting. The program will run from 1 to 5 p.m. on weekdays between July 8 and Aug. 16. Each week will cost $75.
Parents interested in registering their children up for any of these clinics can do so at the Mount Vernon Recreation Department.
