Living in a big metropolitan area has its downsides, as the night sky is blocked by light pollution that blocks out the stars. At the Planetarium, guests are seated underneath a 60-foot-diameter dome, where they peer skyward at stunning images of the universe, educational films, and Texas stargazing, which is presented live by a scientist at The Planetarium at UT Arlington. A Digistar 5 DLP Projection system displays its photonic glory across the cosmic screen as booming surround sound rumbles into ears. Regularly scheduled public shows educate and thrill guests with explorations of distant stars and music shows.

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We focus on teaching the players the correct way to handle the basketball, understand what the defense and offense is allowing, and we identify and correct non-productive habits. Our coaches have years of teaching and playing the game of basketball at every level, including college and professional.
Is your location strictly for adults, or can kids participate as well?
Yes, we work with youth from 5-18
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We were inspired to start this business because we have a passion for the game of basketball and a gift to teach the game to youth. We also noticed the lack of skills that were being taught by various coaches, so we wanted to focus on the lost art of teaching basketball skills.
What do you love most about your job?
The most fulfilling part of our job is to see the student-athlete pick up the skills that we teach and seeing them execute them in a game-like situation.
With the help of a team of trainers, owner of Cover All Bases, Chris Gay, gives little-leaguers a leg up on the competition. During his clinics, he spends much of the time working on the sport's most essential motion—the swing—in private hitting lessons. But to help build all-around athletes he and his four trainers lead sessions geared toward pitching, fielding, catching, and the closely related art of hitting. A high school athlete himself who went on to pitch for the University of Texas at Arlington and double-A minor league baseball with the Chicago White Sox for 2 1/2 seasons, his love for the game shines through in his training sessions. "(I) love teaching baseball to kids and helping them make their high school teams," he says.

A neighborhood is most often defined by its people, its businesses, and its recreational facilities. Arlington Parks and Recreation is dedicated to making Arlington a more enjoyable place to spend time with your family in the great outdoors. Scattered throughout the city, the affiliated parks, swimming pools, and athletic centers summon people to get moving. Have a picnic, play a game of horseshoes, and wander down a wooded path at your local park, or jump into the nearest swimming pool to escape the heat of a hot summer day. Families can also take part in a variety of special events throughout the year such as Light Up Arlington, when the entire city celebrates the Fourth of July with fireworks, and Ecofest, which teaches environmental awareness with do-it-yourself ecological demonstrations.
