Sports & Recreation

These Club programs help develop physical fitness, reduce stress, and promote a positive use of leisure time, appreciation for the environment, and interpersonal skills.

Triple Play is a comprehensive health and wellness program.  It strives to improve the overall health of Club members ages 6-17 by increasing daily physical activity, teaching them about good nutrition, and helping them develop healthy relationships.

Tigers Wrestling Team
Ages 4-17

The wrestling program was established in 1990 by Club volunteers. The Tigers consist of well over a hundred members that are as young as four years old.

The Boys & Girls Club of San Fernando Valley hosts self-defense and safety awareness classes Tuesdays and Thursdays for ages 5+.  During class, students are taught basic mixed martial arts moves by a highly trained instructor.  Students will complete various drills that improve self-confidence, increase focus, and develop new skills.
