The Yvonne Richardson Community Center’s gym space is approximately 110 x 80 sq. ft. and is air conditioned and heated year round.

We received an few announcements this week concerning some city-run adult sports programs that we thought we’d pass along.

The Yvonne Richardson Community Center is currently taking registrations for its Adult Basketball League and the city’s Parks and Recreation department will soon begin doing the same for its 2011 Spring Adult Softball League.

Also, registering early for the Arctic Classic will save your team $25.
