On January 20th, the Brooklyn Sports Club (BSC) hosted a Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Kids Day event. This all-day health and wellness experience invited mem-bers to bring their children to the BSC for free fun activities from 10 am to 7 pm while they exercised.
The fitness facility began the morning with exciting physical activities. Donning their swim caps, some young guests were able take a dip in the indoor swimming pool with the guidance of the BSC’s aquatics instructors. They had the choice to either break a sweat learning choreography from Purele-ments’ dance classes or work on their golf stroke mechanics from demonstrations with All Access Golf. In addition, the Starrett City Girl Scouts (SCGS) hosted an arts and crafts project for the young attendees.
Kids Day was a success, seeing about 100 children in attendance.
The BSC also introduced several ongoing programs, such as a POGO Multi-Sport Demo and an Obstacle Course with the facility’s very own Coach Hatcher. There will be an open registration for this 7 week program until next week (after the registration ends you can still drop in to any class for $20), which is intended for ages 4-12 years old. For more information and to register, please contact the BSC at 718-642-2720.
Another program that began during the Kids Day event was Swish Academy, this basketball camp is only available during school holidays. For more information and to register, please contact info@ swishacademy.com or phone 347 841 6330 (www. swishacademy.org).
The BSC will be hosting another Open House on Monday, Feb. 17th for guests 18 and over from 6am-10pm (must bring a valid ID).
