Our eSports leagues have begun! The Parks & Recreation Department has partnered with Mission Control to bring recreational eSports opportunities to our community. Mission Control manages the league schedules, validates scores, and determines the champion while serving as a community forum for leagues members and friends. Five leagues began play on December 28, with 36 players, ages 13+,  playing Rocket League and Mario Kart (all games are available on multiple platforms, including Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo and PC). The initial pilot program is FREE , with new leagues and games debuting in the coming months.

Free COVID and Antibody Testing

Over the past ten months, activities at the City of Concord’s community centers have been significantly restricted by county and state health orders due to the pandemic. In an effort to play a positive role in the community and provide an additional local COVID-19 testing site, Clayton Valley Charter High School (CVCHS) has rented Centre Concord to offer free testing every Wednesday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. 

 The testing is by appointment only and anyone in the community is welcome to sign-up via the online scheduler. Appointments are available until filled and appointments will open up for subsequent Wednesdays at 5 p.m. on the testing day; for example, testing appointments will open for Wed, Feb. 24 at  5:00 p.m. on Wed, Feb. 17. For more details, directions to sign-up, and forms that contain important information for review prior to signing up for a testing appointment, click here.
