The City of Santa Clarita’s annual action-packed Youth Sports and Healthy Families Festival is returning to the Santa Clarita Sports Complex for the seventh year in a row happening on Saturday, August 22 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
This event packs over 30 activities into one day, all in one location, for thousands of Santa Clarita residents. In addition to being an exciting day for families, the Youth Sports and Healthy Families Festival also provides kids the opportunity to try out new sports and activities without an associated cost.
Throughout the 22 acres of the Santa Clarita Sports Complex and its facilities, families can experience an eclectic assortment of activities including kayaking, boxing, futsal, inner-tube water polo, racquetball, stand-up paddle boarding, fencing, and S.N.A.G. golf. Classic sports like basketball, soccer, baseball, and tennis can also be enjoyed.
Living an active lifestyle goes hand-in-hand with healthy eating habits and in support of this, both Kaiser Permanente and Whole Foods will be sponsoring the Healthy Families Experience in the Activities Center during the festival. Families will have the opportunity to learn interesting facts about food, receive tips on how to live a more active lifestyle and interact with various informational and educational displays.
Throughout the festival, attendees will also have the chance to enter a raffle for the chance to win great prizes including amusement park tickets, restaurant gift cards, and professional sports memorabilia. All raffle proceeds will benefit the City’s SCORE program, which provides recreation scholarships for youth. A variety of food trucks will be on site with food for purchase.
