TyTans Archery Club

Our archery program has been expanding, and now we have a youth archery club! A great way for your kids to be active in a beneficial environment. Read below for Mr. John’s letter about the club: Dear Kids-Youth-Parents-Grandparents, This letter is to let you know about TyTans Archery Club (Teller Youth Team Archery).  It is just for kids/youth, male/female, ages 8 to 17.  We meet at Cripple Creek Park & Rec (CCP&R) most Saturdays from 10:00 to 12:00, and from 12:00 to 2:00. Why archery you may ask.  Well, studies show that archery helps kids/youth focus, learn patience, develop self-discipline/self-control/self-confidence, concentrate, get some exercise, gain emotional intelligence, and through all this they can become better students in school! Another advantage of archery is that it is truly a lifelong sport for all ages, and ANYBODY can learn how to shoot, and most that do love...

Pamper Mom This Mother’s Day

This month’s craft is our last for the summer! Summer is busy for everyone, so we’re taking a break to enjoy the sunshine and will be back with more projects when the school year starts! But before we go, we’ll be making a great little spa set that’s perfect as a Mother’s Day gift – of course, no one’s saying you can’t keep it for yourself! The spa set is a three-part project that includes Shower Jellies, Sugar Scrub, and Lip Scrub. Everything begins unscented, and you can choose from the variety of options what scents and colors would be best for your mom – or you!   Shower jellies can be used basically the same as soap, just as a fun version. Small pieces can be added to a loofa to create a cleaning lather, or each small...

Basketball With a Brand New Look

We’re proud to announce our new Sport Court! See below for details about our Grand Opening. Our new court is far more than just a basketball court – in addition to quality materials, we also will have the ability to play more sports, including Badminton, Volleyball, and Pickleball. Sport Court of the Rockies built our court, using foot by foot tiles that are engineered and made here in the USA. The tiles are a high impact polypropylene copolymer, and have a unique shock absorption technology that protects against head injuries and concussions from low heights. The Lateral Forgiveness™ grid technology has double-tier shock absorption which lessens impact while providing the best protection against abrasion of any outdoor court surface, and also reduces joint strain and fatigue.   The shock absorption doesn’t effect dribbling though, as the PowerGame™ court has...
