Opportunities to Connect with Other Families – Estrella Youth Sports

Ever wondered why the neighborhoods of Estrella seem so quiet on Saturday morning? It’s most likely because many of the families with young children are at the ball fields cheering on their fellow teammates of Estrella Youth Sports (EYS).  It is a huge social gathering where neighbors catch up on the week’s events, and kids enjoy friendly competition on the playing field.

The EYS program organizes leagues, camps and clinics year-round for a wide variety of sports including flag football, basketball, soccer, tennis, girls volleyball, baseball and cheerleading. EYS is dedicated to teaching a healthy and active lifestyle and promoting teamwork, camaraderie and friendship. The program is also great for parents and young adults to feed their passion for sports by volunteering to coach one of the EYS teams, prepping the fields or refereeing a game.

“I cant express how thankful I am to this community for making our vision for EYS possible,” said Dale Kamarata, Executive Director of EYS. “Our organization is thriving and providing a fantastic outlet for children of Estrella to make friends, learn teamwork and stay active.”  Since its inception in 2007, EYS has grown to well over 1,000 children who participate in the sports leagues regularly.

Kamarata also pointed out his great appreciation of having partners like Newland Communities for supporting resident-made and run organizations and the Liberty School District, Estrella Foothills High School and Estrella Mountain Church for providing the fields. Estrella Youth Sports is a fantastic example of how the community of Estrella has come together to support an organization that is instrumental in connecting residents, growing healthy families and building lasting friendships. EYS is available for children ages 3-14, visit http://www.eyskids.com for more information.

EYS is just one example of some of the great clubs and organizations available for Estrella residents. When you live here it easy to connect with fellow neighbors while allowing your kids to get active in areas that spark their interest.
