Being part of a club can be a great way to meet friends who share your interests, practice your favorite hobbies, and even learn new skills. And in the Coppell, Texas, area, you and your family have plenty of awesome clubs to join together or separately, no matter what you’re interested in. That’s why Crème de la Crème of Coppell on N. MacArthur Boulevard has put together this list of local clubs and organizations you and members of your family can get involved with.
Coppell Rotary Club
The Rotary Club is an international organization with chapters all over the world, including with a local chapter here in Coppell. This organization aims to help local and global communities through volunteer work, leadership training, and charitable initiatives that support causes like education, environmental preservation, and economic development. The Coppell chapter of the Rotary Club hosts events, fundraisers, and volunteer opportunities for members to serve the local community.
While the Coppell Rotary Club is for adults, there are a few local chapters of the teen version, known as Interact Clubs. Kids ages 12 to 18 can join their local Interact Clubs, and Coppell High School has its own chapter for students. That means you and your older children can be in the same club serving your community together.
Coppell Community Chorale and Children’s Chorus
If your family is musically inclined, consider joining the Coppell Community Chorale or Children’s Chorus. This group does not require auditions, but you have to love music and have a good ear. Adults and teens who are at least 14 years old can join the Chorale, which involves weekly rehearsals, practicing at home, and then performing a few times per season. If you or your older children are particularly fond of performing and are stellar singers, you can try out for the elite choir known as Variations.
If your children are in 3rd through 5th grades, then they can join the Coppell Children’s Chorus. As with the Chorale, there are weekly rehearsals and a few performances each season. All choir memberships require dues, which vary in price depending on the group you and your family member join.
The Cozby Library and Community Commons hosts a variety of weekly and monthly events that operate like clubs. However, these clubs have drop-in attendance instead of requiring a weeks-long commitment like others may have. One such event is the Storytime series, which is a parent-and-child event where you and your baby get to hear a story, sing and dance to songs, and have playtime with other families. It’s a great “club” where you can meet other parents and set up potential playdates for your little ones.
The library has weekly sessions for infants, called Baby and Me Storytime, as well as Toddler Time for kiddos 12 to 24 months old and Preschool Storytime for kids 2 to 5 years old.
The STEAM Club is another one hosted by the Cozby Library and Community Commons. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics, and it’s the combination of these subjects that makes up the content of each month’s event. This club gets kids in kindergarten through 5th grade together to complete hands-on activities and projects that have them solving puzzles, bringing their creative ideas to life, and collaborating with their peers. It’s a great club for kids who show interest in building, experimenting, and creating, which is practically every kid!
Book Clubs at Cozby Library
The Cozby Library plays host to a few different book clubs for avid readers of all ages. These book clubs typically meet once per month to discuss a book they’ve read as a group, and they’re a great way for adults and kids to make new friends.
The teen’s book club is known as Diverse Book Club, and this group reads and discusses books that cover unique experiences from a variety of perspectives, including race, ethnicity, class, religion, and more. This club is for teens in 9th through 12th grades. In addition to monthly discussions, this club also hosts special events, like a Teen Lock-In, book box events, and more.
The Got Books Club is for adults and seniors, but it’s not your typical book club. That’s because this club lets members read and discuss whatever books they want with the intention to give everyone recommendations each time they meet. This unique book club is more flexible, perfect for people who prefer to read a certain genre or are lost on what to start next.
Dallas Dads Group
Meetup is an online platform for creating and managing local clubs, and it’s a fantastic tool for adults to find groups in their area that meet their interests. One such Meetup group, the Dallas Dads Group, is actually a local chapter of a national group called City Dads Group. This club aims to bring local dads together to hang out with or without their kids, bond over being fathers, and learn from each other about how to be better parents.
It’s an incredibly welcoming group of guys with nearly 1,000 members on the Meetup site from all backgrounds of fatherhood. They’ve had more than 300 past events, everything from playdates, museum trips, zoo days, sporting events, parent and child classes, and workshops.
North Texas Chess Academy
The North Texas Chess Academy is a local organization that offers group and individual lessons, camps, and competitions for little aspiring chess masters. While the classes aren’t your traditional club, they do bring kids together as peers to learn the history and strategy of chess. Kids get a chance to learn new skills, improve their critical thinking, develop their communication and social skills, and gain sportsmanship. The North Texas Chess Academy also offers adult classes, so it’s never too later to learn how to play chess. What better reason is there to learn than if your whole family is learning, too?
So there you have it, seven clubs you and your family can join in and around Coppell, Texas. Did we miss any of your family’s favorite local clubs and organizations to be a part of? If so, contact us, and we’ll be sure to add them to our list!
