Ever heard the saying "an active child is a healthy child"? If that is true Beaumont should be home to a lot of healthy children. Our Parks and Recreation Department has more than 30 parks and outdoor recreation facilities with sports programs for young Beaumonters.
Our warm weather keeps activities going year round. Our local YMCA offers a wide range of activities. Youth sports include swimming lessons, baseball, soccer, T-ball, Flag Football.
Soccer is BIG in Beaumont. The Beaumont Youth Soccer Club is already taking spring 2008 registrations. Located off Major Drive and Dishman Road you will find a great soccer facility where the Beaumont Youth Soccer Club plays. The club promotes good sportsmanship, good physical health, and teaches the fundamentals.
Over at Ford Park you will find the Texas American Fast-pitch Association Nationals. Tournaments are held at the Ford Park Athletic Fields.
For families with children the choices are endless. Almost everywhere you look you'll find young Beaumonters enjoying the great outdoors.
