ATHLETICS AND FITNESS
The Lenfest Center believes that athletics and fitness can have a tremendous impact on the physical, emotional and mental well-being of a child. To accomplish this we offer a variety of structured and unstructured athletic and fitness opportunities for young people in grades K-12. Our focus is on developing a sound mental approach to physical competition, whether it be learning the fundamental skills of basketball, building the self-confidence needed to perform a dance routine in front of an audience, or learning how to win and lose gracefully in an after-school game of kickball.
If a student has the basic skills and confidence necessary to participate in a sport, he or she is more likely to enjoy the experience and embrace physical activity as a positive part of life. We strive to make the Lenfest Center a safe, challenging pace for youth to explore athletic and fitness options and develop healthy habits that can benefit them well into adulthood.
All programs are free of charge however consistent attendance is required in order to keep your child’s spot on the roster.
To register for a program, contact Program Coordinator India Blunt at 267.314.7402 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
