Occasionally we do have an area for younger boys and girls at the campus.  We call this the polka dot area.  We supply cones, limbo bars and other equipment for boys and girls to practice. Note: This area is self-supervised by the parents/ guardians of the youths in the area. There is no coaching or Ythan CC supervision in this area.
