Disc Golf Lessons

It’s a form of golf that uses discs instead of a club and a ball. There is something magical about throwing a disc and watching it fly through the air on its flight path. Join us at the Broadview Heights Recreation disc golf training zone to learn the basic rules, different throwing styles, and techniques of this fast-growing popular sport! Sign up now to learn a physically challenging and rewarding activity that anyone can play.

The 10U tennis league is an opportunity for new and emerging players to put their tennis skills to use on the court! Players will work in teams of 2-4 players to hit the ball over the net as many times as possible in a 20-minute period against another team of 2-4 players, rotating positions on the court every few minutes and switching sides after 10 minutes of play. This mode of play is designed to build confidence with young players and introduce the idea of rallying back and forth with an opponent as players work towards real match play. The league offers low-pressure competition since points are received just for hitting it over the net while encouraging teamwork too.
