All kinds of summer day camps are open to kids from soccer to sailing – through the city’s park and recreation department.

Two of the camps will be coached by longtime city recreation department employee Dan Paiva – a basketball camp, starting next week, followed by a flag football camp.

The basketball camp for the week of July 21 through July 25 is for 7 to 12 year olds. Kids will learn the fundamentals of the game. The camp on the following week, July 28 through Aug. 1, will be for 10 to 15 year olds.

Both camps run from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. and will be in the Washington Manor Middle School gym, 1170 Fargo Ave. The fee for the basketball camp is $159 for San Leandro residents and $184 for non-residents.

The flag football camp will run the following week, Aug. 4 through Aug. 8, for 7 to 10 year olds, and on Aug. 11 through Aug. 15 for 11 to 14 year olds.

The flag football camps will be held at Washington Manor Park on Zelma Street from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. The camp is for both beginners and players with some experience. There will be instruction on fundamentals and daily games. The camp is also good preparation for the NFL Flag Football League held in the fall.

The fee for the flag football camp is $157 for residents, and $182 for non-residents.

Paiva is teaching the camp, along with his grown son, Coleman, through a company called Recsphere, based in Castro Valley.

Paiva says he has arranged with San Leandro High football coach Brad Bowers to have some of the Pirates football players come to the camp to help teach technique and run drills.

Register for the class online at or at the Marina Community Center, 15301 Wicks Blvd., or the Senior Center, 13909 East 14th St., or for more information, call 577-3462.
