Although I can’t resist posting this photo of my sweet boy Rocky (he’s a Havanese) with his fancy bow, I strongly encourage you to please check in advance if our furry friends are allowed at these 4th of July Celebrations mentioned above. Most of the local beaches do not allow dogs. Also, keep in mind that the crowds and fireworks might be very scary for them. More pets get lost on 4th of July than any other day of the year. Make sure your furry friend is having a safe Independence Day 2014!

Korisma is more than just a place for modeling and acting classes, it is a School for Personal Charm. Kori’s goal is to “inspire kids to become outstanding individuals with character, poise, charm, and integrity”. The weekly classes include training in image, modeling, acting, table manners, phone etiquette and much more. As an outside oberserving Kori with her students, it becomes very evident that she is working hard on every single student’s confidence, self-esteem, charm, speaking skills, interpersonal communication, and manners.

Recreational Youth Basketball League near The Bayou Club, Bardmoor, Bayou West and surrounding areas

Boy and Girl Youth Basketball Players

Basketball Youth League Players from The Bayou Club | Bardmoor area

The area of The Bayou Club, Bardmoor, Bayou West and surrounding neighborhoods have many single family homes, and many children live in this area. I want to share some information about things to do for kids in The Bayou Club, Bardmoor, Bayou West and surrounding areas, and start with information about BASKETBALL!

For a beginners and recreational basketball league for children and young adults, I have found it tricky to find a good place to play at in Largo, Pinellas Park or even Seminole, FL. The best organized, and most welcoming, non-intimidating setting I can recommend is the Youth Basketball League at Pasadena Community Church!

Pasadena Community Church is located at 227 70th Street South, St. Petersburg, Florida 33707, Tel. 727-381-2499, it offers a wonderful youth sports program in its very own gym. It is very well-known in the area for its recreational youth basketball program, with players ranging from first grade through high school.  At the younger age range, the co-ed teams are giving boys and girls the opportunity for a fun and safe introduction to the sport. Older players focus on improving their skills further, and fine-tuning their technique. My children are playing their 2nd season there, and are excited to go to practice and games every single time!

Here the best part: The league is open to anybody! Costs are $75.-/player for a 8 week session, one weekday practice and Saturday morning game. It is run in a very friendly and welcoming spirit, here a direct quote from their website: “… we strive to provide your children with a unique opportunity unlike other recreation programs. We will not only teach them the basic skills, but our goal is to also teach them the importance of good sportsmanship and respect for their coaches as well as their teammates. We will strive for your child to have fun at the same time as learning.” Check out their website for registration forms and a league calendar.

If you are looking for a Youth Basketball League near The Bayou Club, Bardmoor, Bayou West and surrounding areas, check out Pasadena Community Church!
