Play Days are free and packed with fun for the entire family, featuring trained coaches providing instruction to children of all ages across a variety of sports and fitness activities, including soccer, lacrosse, flag football, golf, kickball, dodgeball, rugby, dance and fitness classes and more.
Healthy eating options will be available, as well as nutritional education from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Peach State Health will be making fresh smoothies on-site with the “bike blender”, courtesy of Atlanta Bicycle Coalition.
Play Days are free and presented in partnership with Atlanta ContactPoint, a non-profit established to engage children and adults through the power of play. For more information, visit beltline.org/playday.
