Four Square is all the rage! I am working on developing a Four Square clinic come September from the founder of the Four Square National Championship, which happens to be here in Maine. Come join the fun, and if you’ve got the skills and moves, we will get our Blue Hill Four Square athletes an invitation to the National Championships in February.

The Rec Department is proud to officially announce yet another opportunity for our peninsula’s children this summer. The popular Youth Summer Track season/club is ON!
Please find details in the attached document, but this is a wonderful experience for children and families. Some of my fondest memories of my BH summers are from those track meet days. I highly encourage this for any interested child, ages 5 – 14.
