Mayor Arrigo and Revere Recreation Announce Open Gym Dates For Middle and High School Students in 2017-18

August 30, 2017

Following this past spring's successful pilot program, Mayor Brian Arrigo and the City of Revere Parks and Recreation Department are happy to announce Open Gym dates this fall for middle and high school students. 

Dates for open gym are:

October 6

November 3

December 8

January 5

February 2

March 2

April 6

All of these are the first Friday of each month, except December  due to the city tree lighting ceremony. 

The open gym nights will be held from 6:00 pm – 9:00pm at the West Revere School Complex gymnasium.

Any middle school or high school student from Revere is eligible.

Open gym is free for all. However, students can only gain entry by complying with the following:

  • Students must be a Revere resident and must show a school identification badge. If they do not have a school identification badge they must be accompanied by a parent and have the parent sign them in.
  • Students must provide an emergency phone number
  • Students must have no food or gum in their possession 

These open gyms are just that - open gyms. Kids will be allowed to play sports like basketball or soccer at their own leisure under the supervision of department staff.

The Recreation department will be announcing additional weekend opportunities for teens to take part in more organized sport sessions and programs over the next month.

In addition to these sport initiatives, the Rec department also features Friday night middle school programming via their Kids Night Out event that occurs the second Friday of each month at the Recreation Center (150 Beach Street). This event includes games, crafts, pizza and more.

Last but not least, All Star Gaming Night returns for another school year on Thursday nights from school dismissal until 6 PM. Every Thursday night, kids in grades 5-8 are invited to come to the Rec Center for a free gaming night, with Xbox games, card games and more.

We look forward to announcing more youth programming in the near future, and look forward to a successful year of open gym nights.
