Additionally, water fitness classes are offered during the summer as a good form of cross-training for recreational athletes and individuals interested in enhancing their health and fitness levels.

SOFTBALL & KICKBALL TEAM

Representatives from the Adult Sports Office and Softball USA will review rules and regulations and answer questions relating to H.P.A.R.D. adult softball and kickball leagues.

LEISURE EDUCATION

Houston Parks and Recreation Department provides opportunities to educate the general public about the use of leisure time, benefits, values, and positive impacts of leisure and recreation services. The presenter will review the many ways people can take advantage of better leisure by providing recommendations to participate in various leisure activities with HPARD that are either self-directed or leader directed at community centers, parks, aquatic centers, tennis centers, golf courses, skateboarding parks, sports facilities, trails, etc.

Listed below are workshops offered on various topics related to the concept of leisure:

LEISURE, THE BASIS OF CULTURE
This workshop will present essential components of health and fitness that will enable a person to enhance quality of life to maximize better leisure. A discussion involving ancient Greek philosophy will differentiate common misconceptions about the idea of leisure and its relation to work, and that it is actually an attitude of mind and a condition of the soul that fosters receptivity to both physical and spiritual realities.

EATING AS LEISURE
This workshop reviews the process of eating as a leisure activity that can significantly influence interpersonal interactions, cultural norms, and the overall quality of life for people. Unfortunately, as a society, we have lost sight on eating as a leisure activity focusing more on industrial development, obsessive weight loss, personal and business success, and a hurried lifestyle leading to numerous health problems, such as cancer, obesity, diabetes, and depression. However, a growing momentum of people having an interest in food preparation, quality ingredients, nutritional value, ambience and environment, and socialization, have made the concept of “eating as leisure” very appealing with the capacity to change norms, habits and patterns popularized by American culture toward a healthier population.

THE POWER OF LEISURE FOR ADOLESCENT DEVELOPMENT
The inherent characteristics of leisure (choice, enjoyment, and autonomy) make it a prime context for the development of adolescence. Based on recent research, structured leisure programming can play a key role in facilitating the transition from youth to adult, especially in identity development. Through participation in wholesome and meaningful leisure, adolescents can gain many positive outcomes, such as academic performance, physical and psychological health, and social connections, among others.
