Youth Sports Program: Team and Individual Sports
The MWR Youth Sports Program offers a variety of organized sporting activities that promote the psychological, social and physical well being of the Rota young people. The program offers recreational activities that enhance physical fitness, self-esteem, teamwork and leadership skills. MWR provides the staff, equipment and playing areas necessary to facilitate the athletic and recreational development of children. There are team sports such as baseball, softball, soccer, basketball and flag football offered at different times during the year. There are also individual participation challenges such as 1k-3k fun runs, mini-triathlons, swimming events and fitness clinics throughout the year.
Each season, the upcoming team sport sign up is advertised for three weeks. Following a skills assessment, players are divided into teams, which are chosen to be as fair and equal as possible regarding age and skill levels.
Parental involvement and voluntarism is a key aspect of the Youth Sports Program. Clinics are held to train coaches and officials. Besides a need for volunteer coaches, there is a need for volunteer team parents and other volunteer roles.
