Arona offers a summer of sports for all the family
Summer is here and Arona council has set up a varied programme of sports activities where children, young people, adults and seniors can benefit from activities for the whole family.
Residents and visitors will be able to register in the different activities split into four sections: activities for children, activities for young people and adults, activities for the whole family and adapted sports.
Last year’s novelty of climbing courses on the climbing wall in the Garañaña park in Costa del Silencio for students aged eight to 14 years is repeated given the large number who signed up.
But new for 2018 and under the umbrella of “Arona Muévete”, the programme will be launched in the San Lorenzo Valley (El Almendro) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm to 8pm and in Playa Las Américas (c / Las Madrigueras) on Mondays and Wednesdays at the same time and for free “Calisthenics”, a physical activity focused on the execution of movements through the different muscle groups using their own body weight.
The “La Bola Canaria” on the beach is also repeated, a free activity for the whole family. They will be on Mondays and Wednesdays at Los Cristianos beach and on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Las Galletas beach. The schedule for both venues will be from 7pm to 9pm.
Fun days in Arona begin very early, with the beach of Los Cristianos hosting from 8am to 9am, an hour of “Gym on the Beach.”
This activity is aimed at people from 17 years, where the level of activity will be adapted to the characteristics of the people involved. This part of the programme is repeated on the same stage and with the same duration starting at 7.30pm.
The third age has its annual activity in the elderly centres of the municipality within the special care groups through the “Adapted Sports” Programme. This activity continues during the summer, moving to an ideal environment for this time, such as Playa de Las Vistas.
For this, there will be a free transport service from various points of the municipality to the beach.
From10am to noon on the beach of Los Cristianos, it is the turn of the youngest with the activity called “Games on the Beach”, aimed at children aged six to 14 years, where they can develop physical activities – recreational games, animation games or alternative sports.
Parallel in the sailing school, mini courses of sailing, paddle surfing and canoeing are taught, aimed at students from six years old. These courses are held from Monday to Friday in several one-hour shifts that start at noon.
At the Jesús Domínguez “Grillo” swimming pool in Los Cristianos, the swimming courses begin at 10am. The aim of these workshops is for the girls and boys to learn and perfect the techniques of swimming in order to carry out activities in the water in a safe way. Swimming for babies, for pregnant women, for adults, for boys and girls with different levels of learning, are some of the offers that are offered to residents and visitors of Arona in this sports complex.
Golf courses are another alternative that the Board of Sports of Arona puts at the disposal of residents, with introductory courses for beginners from seven to 14 years, with the collaboration of the Golf Club “Los Palos”.
