Between the price of running your air conditioning and having to feed hungry kids all day long, summer “vacation” can actually become more stressful for parents than their kids even realize. Fret not! Valley-Wide is here to save the day. Valley-Wide has been a staple in our city for many years, giving kids all around opportunities to make friends, play sports, and eventually become employees of the company. Thousands of kids have come through various programs at Valley-Wide and have turned around to become coaches, umpires, refs, and volunteers.
This hasn’t changed, Valley-Wide is offering many fun things this summer for kids and adults alike. Starting with summer basketball, but be fast because the deadline is June 18th for signups. Valley-Wide is offering basketball for the age brackets of 7-17 so if your child falls into this range and you’re looking for something for them to do that doesn’t include a screen, this is perfect for them.
Valley-Wide is still planning to host their annual Independence Day 4th of July hang out and fireworks. This is always a great event for the community to come together, bar-b-que, play pick up games, and enjoy an amazing firework show that reminds us of our great Nation and the freedom we get to enjoy thanks to our forefathers.
