Recreation Center Programs & Activities
Arroyo Viejo Recreation Center named 2012 American Cheer Power National Champions!
The Office of Parks and Recreation was represented by Arroyo Viejo Recreation Center at the 2012 American Cheer Power National Championships in Las Vegas Nevada and shined brighter than the rest! With the help from amazing partners, families, and volunteers our girls were able to really show up and show out. A special thanks to the Girls Sports Unit and the CEO's for their continued support. Thanks to everyone who helped us fundraise, friend-raise, and supported in other ways. If you see any of these young ladies in a park near you, strutting their stuff in their championship jackets, show them some OPR love!
