   You do not need to drive into "town" to enjoy many cultural, recreational, and the continuing educational opportunities.   The Arizona Senior Academy (ASA) sponsors many events right up the road at the Academy Village. Our neighborhoods have a friendly relationship and Coyote Creek residents are invited to sign up for events.  It's a great way to join up with good people who want to improve their neighborhoods and take care of their mind and body.  Find exercise classes here.

Note to visitors:   Because some of the events overfill the hall, we have established a reserved-seat policy.  This means non-Academy members need to call 647-0980 or email to make a reservation. The first twenty-five people to reserve a seat will be able to enter the hall fifteen minutes prior to the announced starting time of the event and may sit anywhere, as will Academy members.  Visitors without a reservation will be able to seat themselves five minutes prior to the announced starting time.  Visitor parking is behind the Community Center.  Upon entry into Academy Village there will be a stop sign.  Turn right and follow the yellow dividing line in the road to a sign that reads “Additional Parking”.  Turn left onto Vivaldi Court and follow the road down into the parking lot. The rear half of the Great Room is equipped with an inductive loop, providing assistive listening for those with hearing aids. To use, activate T-coil in hearing aid.
