HOME FIELD SPORTS

FNSB Parks and Recreation has created a 4-week sports program for families to have safe, fun, and active play during this time of closures. Each week, teams can learn rules, practice drills, and master skills in a different sport.

Soccer: May 4 - May 8
Basketball: May 11 - May 15
Disc Golf: May 18 - May 22
All-Star Week: May 25 - May 29


HOW IT WORKS
Sign up your team on our website starting April 29th: https://fairbanksak.myrec.com/info/default.aspx. Once registered, you will receive a daily email with tasks, missions, challenges, and contests. If you do not receive the email, please check your spam first, then email lauren.eck@fnsb.us. Team must register EACH week. Challenges will also be posted in the Facebook Event.

On our Facebook event page under the discussion tab, team captains can upload video and photo submissions of their families completing various team tasks, missions, challenges, and contests to gain points. YOU MUST UPLOAD A PHOTO OR VIDEO TO RECEIVE POINTS. Resources to help learn, understand, and complete each mission will also be posted there. If you do not have access to Facebook, please email lauren.eck@fnsb.us your submissions.

We understand that not all families have the equipment needed to play each sport. Alternative options will be included for each sport as they are posted that can be used to complete the missions of the program.

Each week, the missions will be available for submission daily starting Monday becoming available each day at 12:00PM with Friday being the last day. Families can participate in certain weeks individually or the entire 8-week program to gain as many points as possible.


POINTS & PRIZES
Prizes will be awarded to those that accomplish a certain amount of points. A maximum of 25 points can be earned each week. If you complete all of the challenges over the 4-week period, your team will have earned 100 points. Point values will be outlined in each email.

Any team that earns at least 50 points throughout the entire program will receive a $25 credit to use towards any FNSB Parks and Recreation program that begins before July 2021.

Some prizes will be given out for top teams in specific challenges labeled 'SPECIAL CHALLENGE'. The more creative, the better! These winning teams of each challenge will be notified by the program coordinator by the end of the week on how and when to receive their prize.

All are welcome to participate, but only Fairbanks North Star Borough residents will be eligible for prizes.
