FREE SUMMER SPORTS PROGRAMS BEGIN TODAY

Free programs in various sports will be offered to children in Norfolk and Virginia Beach this summer through a National Youth Sports Program (NYSP) hosted by Old Dominion University.

Programs in basketball, flag football, golf, soccer, swimming, volleyball, softball and other games will be offered, along with classroom sessions on drug and alcohol awareness, nutrition, computers, career counseling, and math and science.

NYSP participants will meet from 12:30-5 p.m. June 18 through July 21 on the Old Dominion campus in Norfolk and at Princess Anne Park near the university's Virginia Beach Higher Education Center.

Bus transportation is available to participants at selected sites for both the Virginia Beach and Norfolk locations. Enrollment is free to children ages 10-16 whose parents meet Department of Health and Human Services income criteria.

A daily meal is provided to all participants through the Department of Agriculture's Summer Food Program.
