Trycan: A Collaboration of Communities

Youth with special needs and those who could use just a little help and encouragement are welcome to now register for several programs being offered again this spring by Mountainside and several neighboring towns and coordinated by TryCAN. Our experienced coaches and instructors and excited to return to help our youth develop skills that may allow them to pursue a sport or activity further or simply provide them with a meaningful recreation experience. These popular and affordable classes, open to both residents and nonresidents, also use the assistance of trained teen Peer Mentors from local middle and high schools to help participants fully participate in the classes, learn and have fun.

The classes are held at the Summit Community Center, 100 Morris Avenue. For a copy of the fall flyer with program description complete class dates and times, instructor information, pricing and registration information contact Summit Department of Community Programs. You can also stop by the Summit Community Center to pick up a copy of the flyer, register or answer any questions. 

TryCAN is a collaboration of several neighboring communities offering an array of recreation programs for children with special needs or those who need special accommodation. There are no non-resident fees involved and all welcome!
