“The Gulf Shores Recreation Department is excited to offer this new opportunity to our local middle school students,” Recreation Manager Nicole Ard said. “We want to provide them with safe and fun after-school activities that will encourage them to make new friends and explore new hobbies. Our hopes for this new club is that it will instill a confidence in the children as they learn practical life skills, participate in physical activities and exercise, and hear from several business and college professionals regarding the many options available to them beyond high school.”

Interested children may register for ClubGST at the Bodenhamer Recreation Center or Cultural Center. For more information about ClubGST, please contact Program Coordinator Amanda Deckard by email at adeckard@gulfshoresal.gov or call 251-968-4419.
