(Preparing Little Athletes Youth Program)
One of Citrus County's most rewarding programs is the Preparing Little Athletes Youth Program (P.L.A.Y.). The program's goal is to make youth sports fun and safe for kids.
While the Citrus County Parks and Recreation divison primarily concentrates on programs that are set up for adults, we now also focus on programs that deal directly with children.
The P.L.A.Y. program builds the proficiency and self-assurance that youngsters need to participate and remain active in sports. It is a step-by-step approach that builds confidence and self esteem, and most importantly, makes sports fun!
The programs concentrate on building basic motor skills, using positive reinforcement, and enouraging quality one-on-one time with their parents.
Parks and Recreation is now offering back to back P.L.A.Y. programs and sometimes two programs will be running at the same time.
PROGRAMS RUN THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR. PLAY IS NOT HELD DURING THE SUMMER.
