One Glendale After School Youth Sports Program


About One Glendale

One Glendale was developed, in partnership with the Glendale Unified School District (GUSD) and Glendale Parks & Open Space Foundation, to prevent child hood obesity, build self-esteem, teach leadership skills, and address classroom discipline, by providing after school recreation programming through organized sports.  The primary objectives and goals for this program include:  Increased daily physical activity; reduced screen time, increased consumption of nutritious foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low fat milk; decreased consumption of sugar/high-fat foods like soda, junk food, and fast food; and overall weight loss among participants.  Secondary objectives and goals include: Improved grades; increased self-esteem; improved listening and comprehension skills both at home and at school; and improved interaction with fellow students and family members.

Currently, eight south Glendale elementary schools participate in the program.  The program has four seasons concentrating on a specific sport eight weeks at a time, including flag football, volleyball, basketball, and soccer.  Each school participates with up to thirty 4th and 5th grade students who otherwise do not have access to organized sports.  Each season completes with a championship game between the top four schools.

The Community Services & Parks Department would like to thank and recognize their partner GUSD and their sponsors, Glendale Parks & Open Space Foundation, Glendale Water and Power, and USC Verdugo Hills Hospital, along with additional program supporters, Crescenta Valley High School Choir and Glendale Police Department's Explorer program, for contributing to the success of the program.
