Buddy Sports This community-based sports program allows family members or peers from the community a chance to play together. We will pair up a M-NASR athlete with a buddy volunteer during practice and game time. This gives everyone a chance to experience a complete sports activity in a fun noncompetitive atmosphere. Afterschool Programs Calling all Maine Township Students… Are you looking for fun two days a week? M-NASR offers afterschool programs twice a week for school-age children. Activities may include cooking, science, art, sports and outdoor activities. Aquatics You are never too young to learn to swim. No matter the skill level of your child, our staff will work with him or her to develop abilities on an individual basis. Skills include water entry, floating, going underwater and stroke development. Our enthusiastic staff will be sure to get your child involved and excited about swimming. This essential skill will be a lifelong asset. Super Saturday What better way to spend your Saturday then with your friends. Each season, M-NASR offers an action-packed Saturday Lineup including bowling, snacks, games and swimming. Choose one, two or all three of these programs to custom-fit your Saturdays. Transportation between programs is provided. Schools Day Out Programs School may be out but M-NASR is in! Whether at an all-day (9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.) special event or at spring and sinter break camps, your child will enjoy his or her time away from school in a fun, structured environment. Our staff will work with your child to stay safe and active in an engaging atmosphere. Camp Please see our Summer Day Camp program section. Social Clubs M-NASR offers social clubs each season for our participants.

These one-day events may include holiday activities, trips to the city, sporting events, theater/concerts, water parks and much more! Overnights Looking for a way to allow your teen to grow independently? M-NASR offers several overnight trips each year. These trips focus on self-help skills, independence and socialization. Past overnight trips have included camping, going to the Wisconsin Dells and Great America. Trips typically last two to three days and are a highlight of the season. Friendships and memories made will last for years to come!
