This education-based childcare center offers schooling, summer camps, and enrichment programs for children aged 6 weeks to 13 years. Based on the philosophy that children "learn best by doing," these programs use hands-on activities to teach students basic skills in literacy, mathematics, and bedtime negotiations. Summer workshops explore topics ranging from robotics to soccer, and certified instructors lead groups through scavenger hunts and volunteer projects during assorted camp programs.
The Ice & Golf Center inspires family-friendly outings with 36 holes worth of mini-golf challenges seven days a week. Unlike traditional golf, gamers of all ages, experience levels, and trouser preferences can enjoy a round of this celebrated pastime. Practice greens welcome players to sharpen their putters and prepare for battle before choosing between two distinct 18-hole courses, and five ponds and two waterfalls proffer a scenic backdrop for taking commemorative hole-in-one snapshots or first-date cell-phone videos. Beyond the vast plains of synthetic turf, putt-putt pugilists can replenish their strength at The Ice & Golf Center's fully stocked concession stand or toast victories in the newly renovated sports bar.
Sponsored by Dr. Pepper, the Dallas Cup XXXII excites audiences by providing a soccer showcase for the world’s most talented youth players. Over the course of seven days, teams from seven age groups will compete for a Dallas Cup championship with the hopes of etching their name in tournament history, leaving with international bragging rights and increased odds for future hacky sack careers. Delight in the family-friendly atmosphere of Pizza Hut Park while future soccer stars pass, dribble, and headball paneled orbs past the outstretched arms of leaping goalies and overzealous parents. Several games will be decided on each day of the tournament, and fans can consult the schedule to see when games will be played.
Organized by the Austin Sports and Social Club, the community-oriented Downtown Dash TX unleashes teams on a race across the city rife with physical challenges, social interactions, and mental puzzles. The undefined course lets participants choose their own route, but with a catch: travel must be completed on foot or by public transportation, not on bicycles, rollerblades, or stolen emus. While following a clue sheet, teams attempt to topple up to a dozen challenges all while encountering some of Austin's most historic and renowned sites. Upon crossing the finish line, the top three teams receive a special prize, but everyone wins during a postrace party that stretches the day's festivities into the evening. There will also be random drawings in which every team has a chance to win. The race benefits the Austin Sunshine Camps.
Beyond the race, Austin Sports and Social Club offers a range of coed team sports leagues, including soccer, softball, dodgeball, bowling, and sand volleyball. Participants are able to socialize on the court and at team happy hours following games.
Games are never rained out at Game On Arena Sports' indoor facility. Their enclosed field hosts soccer and flag football leagues, as well training sessions for fledgling athletes and their personal mascots. Away from this competitive space, Game On's instructors lead group fitness sessions such as boot camps, Zumba fitness, and Go-FX, which builds speed and agility.
The Chivas El Paso Patriots, a partner of one of the most popular soccer franchises in Mexico, Chivas de Guadalajara, play in the USL Premier Development League. Being a partner with Chivas de Guadalajara means young Patriots players are able to display their kicking, running, and sweating skills for coaches, increasing their chances of advancing to either Chivas de Guadalajara, a Mexican soccer club, or Chivas USA, an MLS team. If a single day of excitement isn't enough, the season pass grants holders access to all eight home games against such foes as New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and 11 members of the 1963 New York Mets. Cheer wildly and display chest-painted letters as the Chivas El Paso Patriots use their rocket-powered legs to ricochet balls off their opponents' heads and between unsuspecting goal posts.
