ATHLETICS

The foundation of the AYF Olympics has been its athletes. We cannot wait to welcome the athletes – whether you are a novice or a pro, whether you work out from your lazy-boy lounge chair or cannot refrain from doing lunges in a coffee shop line, we believe first and foremost that SPORTSMANSHIP in this Olympics is what matters most. Being an athlete should be celebrated, for sure, but being part of a team – your chapter team – is even more a reason to celebrate.

Amo will be adding information as the pieces develop, but for now, our amazing AYF athletes, eat your Wheaties, train well and aim high. And know at the end of the finish line, we are there cheering you on no matter what!

Other amenities at Rand Park include a park with swings, slides, climbing apparatus, benches, bleachers, a clean restroom building, tennis courts, and two half basketball courts. We thank the park district for their support.  Softball has transformed over the years into the hub of picnicking, so we plan to offer the ultimate in Midwest Hospitality surrounded by a gorgeous wooded area you won’t want to miss!
