Montauk Youth News for January 2010

roller_skateRollerskating for Kindergarten through 3rd Grades
Montauk Youth will begin its rollerskating program at the Montauk School for kindergarten through third grades this upcoming Saturday, January 9 (and will run each week through February 6). Kindergarten and first will skate from 10am to 11am. Second and third will skate from 11am to noon. The cost for this program is $2 per skater (to help cover the cost of skate and wheel upgrades). All skaters must use skates provided by Montauk Youth – NO OUTSIDE SKATES ALLOWED. Helmets are required for all skaters (Montauk Youth has a few, but we recommend you bring your own) and pads and wrist guards are recommended. A signed waiver is required for each participant.

Family Skate Night
Montauk Youth’s December event was such a success that we scheduled another family skating event. On Friday, January 22, we will again take over the indoor arena on Abraham’s Path in Amagansett for 2 hours of rollerskating and roller blading fun. All ages are invited to participate. An admission fee of $5 covers use of the rink, pizza and drinks. Please give us a heads up if you plan to attend, so we know how much pizza to order. Signed waivers are required for all participants. Click here for waivers.

We have a limited number of skates to lend out, and are asking for donations of any rollerskates or blades that you or your children may have grown out of. We will make all donated skates available to those that need them during our family skating events. Contact me (668-1540 or through this email) and I’ll make arrangements to pick your skates up, or you can bring them in to school (we’ll have a box at the front entrance).

mascotOur Mascot
The blizzard just before Christmas put a damper on our plans to unveil the winning name (our youth voted for the best of 5 names on our website during several weeks in December) of our Mustang mascot. We’re hoping to unveil the name this January – we’ll let you know when the big day is planned.

Batting Cage and Pitching Machine
Through a generous grant from County Legislator Jay Scheiderman, Montauk Youth was able to purchase a batting cage and pitching machine for the gymnasium at the Montauk Playhouse. We’re working out the final setup details and hope to have the whole shebang up and running at the Montauk Playhouse in the coming weeks. We’re very excited for this, and look forward to providing our youth with off-season batting practice.

The Town of East Hampton Department of Parks and Recreation will be starting a number of winter programs this week, including:
– Thursday tumbling for 18 months to 4 years old at the Montauk Playhouse
– Wrestling for Boys in 2nd through 8th Grades at the East Hampton High School
– Girls High School Volleyball at the Montauk Playhouse
– Girls Fitness and Sports Training for girls in Grades 8 through 12 at the Montauk Playhouse
– Indoor Soccer for Kindergarten through 6th Grades at the Montauk Playhouse
– Weekly Sports Night for 3rd through 8th Grades at the Montauk Playhouse
All programs are listed on the calendar on our website www.montaukyouth.org. Additional information can be obtained by calling 668-1612 or directly at the Montauk Playhouse.

Montauk Youth is always on the lookout for new programs for our youth, but we need your help to make them happen. Please contact us if you have any ideas, or if you would like to help our ALL-VOLUNTEER organization.
