Get Out & Play
YSA’s Get Out & Play program provides after school activities on early-release days. YSA partners with parent volunteers, Basin Recreation, Deer Valley, Park City Mountain, Park City Ice Arena, Utah Olympic Park, White Pine Touring, Young Riders, and The Mine Bouldering Gym 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 grades can try downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, freestyle skiing, freeride, ski jumping, bouldering, mountain biking, figure skating, speed skating, ice hockey and triathlon on early release Fridays. Program fees include instruction, transportation from schools to participating venues (except for mountain biking, triathlon, and bouldering) 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.
What is Get Out and Play?
GOAP is a fun introduction to Winter Sports, mountain biking and bouldering in a safe learning environment.

Programs will run from September to May in 4/5 week sessions and operates straight after school finishes on a Friday for PCSD schools and Thursday for Weilenmann School of Discovery.
