Baltimore teens get a second chance to ‘rep their district’ through Olympic- style competition
Baltimore—Baltimore City Recreation & Parks’ (BCRP) 2nd Annual Charm City Games competition will take place this summer July 10 – 16, 2021. Teens between the ages of 12-14 are invited to “rep their district” in a week long, Olympic-style sports tournament in a variety of games focusing on soccer, basketball, track and field, and tennis.
The young athletes will work with one another, BCRP and a team of volunteer coaches to battle for the coveted Charm City Cup, which currently lies with District 1— the 2019 winners.
Registration for the 2021 games is currently open. Parents are encouraged to register their young athletes or teams by visiting bcrp.baltimorecity.gov/charm-city-games. Charm City Games relies on parents, mentors and community leaders to get involved by registering as volunteers.
The continued goal of Charm City Games is to connect communities through competition.
“The Inaugural Charm City Games in 2019 was a major success for the young residents of Baltimore and their families,” said Reginald Moore, executive director of Baltimore City Recreation and Parks. “Our agency is always ready to step up to the challenge of making sure our youth remain engaged and to provide innovative approaches to recreation. Charm City Games allows us to do just that, and we are so glad that we will see its return in 2021.”
