Recreation and Team Sports (RATS) is an outdoor sports and games program for boys and girls who want to play all day long. We offer affordable, fun and moderately competitive activities in a supportive, creative and instructive environment. Children of all ability levels are encouraged to enroll, all they need is a willingness to participate. This is a great chance for kids to try different sports and games and really learn the basics, as well as an opportunity for "experienced athletes" to play in a diverse setting.


Kids learn and play a variety of games, including basketball, baseball, touch football, soccer, ping pong, European handball, and a wide array of alternative and cooperative games. During "down time" they enjoy chess, checkers, foosball, board games, silly talent competitions and more.

Program Director and Co-founder Don Arreola-Burl has over 35 years experience operating recreation programs, coaching, and teaching physical education. RATS is the fulfillment of his longtime dream of a creating a mixed-age, diverse, "old-school" summer program in a community setting.

Come join us for a summer of healthy fun!
