You don’t have to travel to Rio to get a taste of this year’s summer Olympics. From swimming and diving to beach volleyball and soccer, summer sports rule supreme in the land of sun and surf. Now get out there and celebrate the summer Olympics (and all thing Rio) the LA way.

Learn to Shoot!

If it's the archery competitions that catch your kiddo's eye, make like Robin Hood or Katniss and watch some professionals show off their archery skills with the Roving Archers of Pasadena. Then get in on the act; they offer free archery classes for students ages 6 & up every Saturday and hold tournaments on Sundays. Check the online schedule for upcoming dates and times.
