My First Sports

My First Sports offers young children an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of sports. But it’s more than just sports for little ones: The classes also provide a unique opportunity for kids and their parents.

“When I was a little kid, I was able to play T-ball with my dad,” says Spenser Lind, recreation coordinator at Willamalane. “It’s one of my fondest memories growing up. I’m glad we’re able to give similar memories to these kids and their parents.”

Working through athletic challenges with parents can cement relationships, Lind says.

“There’s nothing like bonding over sports,” Lind says. “It’s a great time for both kids and their parents.”

What does ID/OD mean?
 People who live or own property within Willamalane Park and Recreation District’s boundaries support Willamalane with their tax dollars, and so they enjoy lower program costs. If you live in-district, you'll pay the ID cost; if you live out-of-district, you'll pay the OD cost. Not sure if you're in-district? Check the district map here.
