JULY 8 – JULY 12, 2019 9:00 am to 3:30 pm RYE COUNTRY DAY SCHOOL
The PlaySmart Academy is a one-of-a-kind summer experience for underserved youth in our local community featuring sports, physical fitness, life skills development and enrichment. It’s a one week program for middle school students (rising 6th to 8th graders) who have a desire to improve themselves not just on the court or field, but more importantly in life. PlaySmart uses sports as a vehicle to teach life skills that youth can take back to the classroom, the community, and to their families.

A WEEK AT PLAYSMART
Participation in sports has significant positive impacts on children. It helps their physical and mental development, improves their self-esteem, and helps them grow into productive members of their communities. We are honored to help them succeed on and off the field!
