    The Mt. Prospect Park District offers dance classes for students of all ability levels and ages 2 1/2 through adult. Due to the progressive nature of

    on pages 15-17 are available for enrollment at this time. For more information on the Mt. Prospect Park District Dance Program,

Fun, fun, fun! Child and parent will learn basic soccer skills in an enjoy-

games and activities.                                                                           More Soccer programs

activities that will promote an enjoyable experience.

Stallions (2.5-3.5 yr w/Parent)
Stallions is more advanced than a Phillies class. It will also give the child,
who is not ready to go on his/her own, one more class with an adult. We
will focus on developing the child’s ability to participate on their own.

Thoroughbreds            (3-4 yr Beginner)
Our most popular class! We will focus on coordination of basic soccer
fundamentals. Students will also start to learn the importance of how a
team works in soccer. This is truly a great class for a future soccer star.

Broncos       (3-4 yr Advanced)
Broncos is designed to be a more advanced class for a 3-4 year old.
Some actual soccer games will be part of each class.

Racers      (5-6 yr)
Racers classes bridge the learning gap before starting park district soccer
leagues. Players will learn more advanced soccer skills and techniques
while building courage, confidence, concentration and coordination.

  PETS: SCOOP-N-LEASH
  Pet owners are reminded that, in our parks, the “Scoop-N-Leash”
  restrictions are in effect. According to Park Ordinance #525; Section
  17, “No person shall bring, permit or allow a dog or other domesti-
  cated animal in or on any Park, except when under the control of the
  person and on a leash that does not exceed fifteen (15’) feet in
  length. ... No person shall bring a dog or other domesticated animal
  into any park unless such person shall be carrying with him or her a
  visible means for removal of such excrement and unless such person
  shall immediately remove such excrement from said park or dispose
  of it in an appropriate trash receptacle.” We want our parks to be
  enjoyed by everyone. Thanks for your cooperation.
