Get Out & Play Programs are on hold due to Covid-19
YSA's Get Out & Play program provides after-school activities for your kids on early release days. YSA partners with parent volunteers, Basin Recreation, Deer Valley, Find Your Path Utah, Park City Mountain, Park City Ice Arena, Utah Olympic Park, White Pine Touring, Young Riders, and Woodward to offer affordable programs that give every child the opportunity to try new sports in a safe supervised environment.
Elementary students in 1st through 5th can try downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, freestyle skiing, freeride snowboarding, ski jumping, mountain biking, figure skating, speed skating, ice hockey, triathlon, camping skills, and indoor action sports. Program fees include instruction, transportation from schools to participating venues (except for mountain biking, triathlon, and camping) and lift tickets where applicable. Students with financial need are offered fee waivers less a small commitment fee and are provided equipment for use during the program.
Get Out & Play Challenge
The calendar provides suggested activities for your child each day. Students can use these ideas OR come up with different ideas to get active for 30 minutes every day. Elementary-aged students should have 30 'active minutes' each day. Middle School and Junior High can combine 'active minutes' with 'healthy lifestyle minutes' (cooking a healthy meal or putting together a photo story). Along with the calendar, we will post weekly alternate activities on YSA's social media.
We would love to highlight participants on social media. Please send us a photo!
What is Get Out & Play (GOAP)?
GOAP is a fun introduction to a variety of sports in a safe learning environment.
When does it start?
Programs run from September through May in 3-5 week sessions. The programs are held immediately after school releases on Thursdays for Weilenmann, and Fridays for all other Park City schools.
Who is it for?
Programs are open to elementary students enrolled in grades 1-5 unless otherwise specified.
What ability levels?
Programs are designed for kids with beginner to intermediate skill sets. Advanced levels are not offered due to the many options available through other organizations within the community.
Where are the programs held?
We are lucky to work with all our local ski/snowboard resorts, Park City Ice Arena, White Pine Nordic Center, Young Riders, and Woodward.
The program hasn't started yet and I need a refund as my personal circumstances have changed. What should I do?
You may request a refund prior to the registration deadline. Note that a $25 administrative fee will be charged. YSA will not issue refunds after the registration deadline.
The program has already started and I need to cancel. What should I do?
Cancellations are accepted only for medical reasons, and a $25 administration fee will be charged.
If there is really bad weather, do you offer make up sessions or can I get a refund?
