Rec Dept’s first ‘Try (it) Out Tuesdays’ generates energy, enthusiasm

Julie Reichle

The first free Try (it) Out Tuesday last summer featured Track and Field and Ultimate Frisbee.

The Recreation Department’s pilot sports program for girlx* ages 5 to 12, Try (it) Out Tuesdays, was off to the races — literally — this past Tuesday, as new Recreation Supervisor Eva Phalen coached participants in Track and Field and Ultimate Frisbee.

You can still sign up for these free evening programs: July 20 features flag football and volleyball and July 27 features rugby and basketball.

Sessions run from 5:45 p.m. – 7:45 p.m. on Linda Beach Playfield. No experience necessary but please register in advance. Contact Steven Chavarria or (510) 420-6223 for more information.

*To create an inclusive and equitable community, PRD is intentionally using an ‘x’ in girlx to include cis, trans, non-binary, gender nonconforming, gender queer and any female-identified individuals.
