With 4 acres around us, our members never get bored with everything our outside space has to offer. In addition to traditional recreation (like soccer and football), we have a variety of crowd favorites on our property. We're known for our popular tetherball poles, as well as offering tournaments in activities like Gaga and Bubble Ball!
Collab Day Contests
With so many more collab days throughout the year, different activities have been run by our Social Programs Coordinator, Kyle. Along with the always popular Half-Court shot competition, he has started a skills competition, three-point contests, and even a dodgeball tournament. "I love seeing the competitive nature of the kids beyond their 1-on-1 basketball games for fun. They get to compete as individuals to be the best of the best. They also get to cheer on their peers in the final rounds of tournaments, it keeps them engaged and they have a lot of fun!"
Our Beach Volleyball pit is a great spot for pick-up games of Volleyball and Nukem Knockout, along with a spring boys volleyball tournament run by the high school group Youth Council.
Video Game Tournaments
We have multiple video game challenges each season, with kids competing in games like Madden, NHL, FIFA and Halo. We even started a Video Game Night, where kids can sign up to challenge each other to a game displayed on the big screen in our gym!
Youth Center Classes
Periodically through the year, the Youth Center offers a wide variety of classes, such as art, First Aid/CPR, cooking, weight lifting, kickboxing, volleyball, yoga, boot camp, self defense and many more.
Every Wednesday before Thanksgiving we hold the annual Turkey Toss. Modeled after the KISS 108 Turkey Toss students pair up to see how far they can throw and catch the 10 pound turkey.
8th Grade Dress-Up Dance
The last Friday in January is the annual 8th grade dress-up dance. All North Andover residents that are in the 8th grade are welcome to come to this special event. There is plenty of food, music and you get to see all of our boys and girls dressed to the nines.
