FYI- CONSTRUCTION AT THE HIGH SCHOOL WILL PUT SOME CONSTRAINTS ON GYM SPACE FOR THE 2019 SEASON. Because of this, each team will only practice once per week and games will be held on Saturdays. 1-hour practices will be scheduled between 4:00 and 6:00 pm on weekdays. Some weekday games may be scheduled as well. Teams are formed by the Parks and Recreation staff. Volunteer coaches are needed, especially coaches who can coach during the weekday times of 4-6 pm.

Please join us as we celebrate our 4th annual holiday fundraiser at Deception Pass State Park Saturday, December 15th, 2018 at Bowman Bay. Festivities run from 4-8pm. There will be a $5 suggested per car donation. Enjoy hot chocolate, delicious baked goods, see Park cabins lit up, pictures with Santa, Toys for Tots drop off location, write holiday letters to service men and women, and feel warmed by the fire. There will be crafts for the kids and more! Remember to wear warm clothes, rain boots, and to bring a flashlight! This family-friendly event supports and promotes the Deception Pass Park Foundation’s mission of resource protection through education. All money raised goes to the direct benefit and enhancement of educational programs in the Park. Although a fundraiser, the Foundation’s main goals are to connect with visitors in a fun and festive way during the off season, and build stronger relationships with the community and other organizations.

Calling all kids! Join Melissa Hawkins at Studio 1010 for a week long after school series of fun! Give your child the opportunity to unwind after a long day of school as we take part in a crafternoon of yoga and art! This special series will help children to tap into their own inner creativity as they create special holiday gifts and cards. We will also play games and explore yoga poses that emphasize mindfulness and gratitude during the holiday season. Side effects may include spontaneous joy, a grateful heart, enhanced focus, confidence, strength and flexibility.

Grab your mat and come play!
