Meeting on every B-Day that falls on a Friday in room 7, Recreation Club, managed by president  Jacob Lucero and vice president Dara Bahrampour, is a new and upcoming club on campus centered around a creating a sense of community through outdoor activities like spike ball and hammocks. Yes, hammocks.

Garrett Baerenstecher, senior and treasurer of Recreation Club said, “Recreation club is built to bring Leigh together in a fun way where we can hang out…Build more of a community here at Leigh, like get people in a fun outdoors way.”

Community is key and especially key when a new school year takes its start. Recreation Club hones in on bringing together Leigh students through outlets such as games and meet-ups, providing a sense of togetherness without the buzz of technology.

“We want to put an emphasis on people going out. We live in a day and age where we really pester down with our technology so we wanted just to take an aspect of that, take it away and we wanna go do outdoor activities and organize fun,” said secretary and senior, Anton Kozintsev. “Bring Leigh together.”
How does Recreation Club push to bring Leigh students together? President and senior Jacob Lucero said, “we plan barbecues for once a month so people come play spike ball and eat hot dogs, set up hammocks, and hang out.” The club also incorporates activities during the lunch time on campus. “We’re trying to plan some other events besides barbeques also some spike ball tournaments at lunch, a hammock day where people bring their hammocks to school,” added Lucero.
Recreation Club, so new that it was established only this year by the senior officers, puts its focus not only on instituting togetherness within the community of 1,600 students, they extend out to help others beyond the campus.

“We try to get people to donate blood after the shooting in Las Vegas because we want to help people out,” added Kozintsev.

Just starting out, the club is looking to grow as the year progresses. “I just want more people to be involved because the more the merrier,” said Lucero.

If hammocks and spike ball are your thing, B-Days on Friday in room 7, Recreation Club and its officers are waiting for you.
