WYANDOTTE – Young residents will get a chance to play in the sand this summer at BASF Waterfront Park starting Tuesday.
This is no usual trip to the beach, however. The city’s biweekly youth beach volleyball clinic will run from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at the park until Aug. 12.
“We have two sand volleyball courts,” recreation technician Theresa Jamula said. “The first day, we want them there at 8:30 a.m. It’s a drop-in kind of program. They usually get around 14 (children).”
Residents who cannot attend and register the first day must register at 9 a.m. at the first session they can attend. The BASF Waterfront Park is next to the Wyandotte Shores Golf Course, 3625 Biddle.
Summer intern Stephanie Cislo will lead the free clinic for residents ages 10 to 14. She is a former Grand Valley State University volleyball player and 2008 alum and standout at Gabriel Richard Catholic High School in Riverview.
