Explore new sports at the MPS Ultimate Sports Day!

July 21, 2022

MPS Athletics and Milwaukee Recreation are hosting the first MPS Ultimate Sports Day on Saturday, Aug. 6. All young people are invited to explore new sports and opportunities to stay active.

This free event will introduce young people to 13 sports programs supported by the district, and gives all participants the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of each sport.

“This is an exciting opportunity to introduce all young people to a variety of sports ahead of the 2022-23 school year,” Bobbie Kelsey, Commissioner of Interscholastic Athletics & Academics, said.

“Sports are such a valuable extension of the classroom. MPS youth and high school athletics programs play a critical role in promoting academic excellence, boosting school and community spirit, and building lifelong skills beyond the playing field. We want as many students to be a part of those opportunities as possible.”

Registered attendees can enjoy sport-specific stations and win raffle prizes, including sports shoe giveaways. High school coaches and youth sports instructors will lead the drills at each station.
