Open Gym – Family Opportunities
April 23, 2021 @ 6:00 am – 9:00 am UTC+0
The Chicago Park District Special Olympics Chicago team is excited to be able to host another round of Family Opportunities! These events are sponsored by Special Olympics Chicago/Special Children’s Charities.
The Spring Family Opportunities will run April 12–June 5.
Family members need to register Special Olympics Chicago athletes for each reservation they would like to make through the links below. Athletes are invited to bring up to 3 additional family members with them for activities listed below. There will not be CPD staff facilitating these activities so each athlete must arrive with a chaperone and that chaperone must stay for the duration of the activity. These are Chicago Park District events, so athletes must have a Chicago Park District Activenet account. If you don’t have an account, sign up here.
Register for a time slot for open gym at Ping Tom Park on Fridays! Each basketball hoop area can be reserved for athletes and their chaperones/guests and they can use the space to do what the wish – exercise, shoot hoops, kick a soccer ball around – get energy out! Groups will not be able to mix and we ask that everyone stay near their basket to keep socially distant for other participants not in their reservation. Masks are required by all when inside the park. We will have limited equipment on-site and it will be sanitized between each use. Reservations are made for a 45 minute time slot for an athlete and up to 3 additional people. Athletes must arrive with a parent/guardian/chaperone and they must stay on-site for the duration of the reservation. Please do not sign up if you aren’t sure that you can make the time slot. If something comes up, and you can no longer make it, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance so that we can offer the slot to someone on the waiting list. Spots are limited! Feel free to email Eileen Guinane at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 312.287.3854. Register below and don’t forget to hit SUBMIT at the end!
