Stay Connected Program
The Stay Connected Program matches incoming youth with a youth sponsor stationed at Hill AFB so they can begin to communicate with other participants prior to arrival at Hill AFB. Youth sponsors are available to provide information about schools, activities and things to do at Hill.
Once the incoming youth has arrived, they are introduced to things to do, and a social event is set up at the Youth Activities Center for all new kids. Contact the Stay Connected Program manager at 801-777-2419 for more information.
The Congressional Award is a public partnership created by US Congress to promote and recognize achievement, initiative, and service in America's youth. The Congressional Award provides a unique opportunity for young people to set and achieve personally challenging goals to build character and foster community service, personal development, and citizenship. Open to youth ages 14-18, the Congressional Award is about challenge. It is a fun way to get more involved in something youth already enjoy or would like to try for the first time. To earn the award, a youth sets goals in four areas: Volunteer public service, personal development, physical fitness, and expedition/exploration. Our teen coordinator will help set challenging but achievable goals and plan activities to reach those goals.
Year round organized recreational league sports are offered for ages 3-13. Sports include basketball, cheerleading, baseball and T-ball, soccer, and flag football. Current physical examination certificates are required at the time of registration. "Start Smart" is offered for youth ages 3-4 and 5-6 (flag football) which is a parent-child group which focuses on motor skill tasks that gradually build confidence in children. Youth will not be permitted to register without a current physical evaluation. Volunteer coaches are needed for all sports and will be certified by National Youth Sports Coaches Association and must have background checks completed to ensure only the highest quality of mentorship.
