Test out a new sport at Wicomico Rec & Parks’ Just Try It

Track and Field

Salisbury, MD – Just Try It offers children an opportunity to try a new sport without having to commit to an entire season. At this Wicomico Recreation & Parks event, youth will have the chance to learn the fundamentals of a sport from representatives of select local youth sports organizations.

“Many times, young children sign up for an entire season of a sport and decide they don’t like it halfway through,” said Recreation Superintendent James Simmons. “Just Try It provides an opportunity for parents and children to come out, have a great first experience with a variety of sports, and then decide if they want to sign up for a full season.”

This free event is set to take place at Wicomico County Stadium from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13 and is sponsored by the Wicomico Friends of Recreation and Parks.

The following sports and organizations will be a part of Just Try It: Fall Sports:

  • Soccer, taught by Sharptown Rec & Parks Commission
  • Flag football, taught by Wicomico Youth Flag Football
  • Track & field, taught by Eastern Shore Stallions
  • Field hockey, taught by Shore Byrds Field Hockey

Each organization will be running short clinics throughout the event to introduce multiple aspects of the sports. Participants must be between 3-11 years old.

Music, free shaved ice, information about Wicomico Recreation and Parks’ scholarship opportunities and staff from all involved organizations will be on site.

“I’m excited to see this idea come to life and thankful that the Wicomico Friends of Recreation and Parks are supporting it,” said Simmons. “It should be a fun day for everyone in attendance and will hopefully lead to more seasons of Just Try It.”

Preregistration is recommended and can be found online at www.WicomicoRecandParks.org.
