Spring sports athletes from West Hartford’s Conard and Hall High Schools will share their love of their games with youth in a Community Day filled with various clinics.

Conard and Hall students will be together on the fields, courts, greens, and in the gym – engaging in their favorite spring sports – but on Saturday, May 19, they will be working together rather than competing.
The second annual West Hartford Community Day will be held at Hall High School, and students from both schools will share their love of their games with kids from all over town in a series of clinics.
“It is completely student-athlete planned and led. Last year was a really special day, and we are excited to see it grow,” said Sarah Isaacs, a King Philip Middle School teacher, Hall High School coach, and coordinator of West Hartford Community Day.
There will be two session, from 10 a.m.-noon and 12:30-2:30 p.m., with clinics in lacrosse, track and field, softball, baseball, tennis, volleyball, and golf being offered.
The program is open to West Hartford residents in grades 3-8. No experience in a particular sport is necessary, and instruction will be provided at levels ranging from beginner to expert.
Students can attend one or both sessions, and while there is no cost for the program, a suggested donation of $10 is encouraged and will benefit Connecticut Children’s Medical Center which is Community Day’s chosen nonprofit beneficiary.
