Many Community Centers have Information, Tickets & Travel offices to meet your leisure travel needs or to find out about upcoming entertainment and special events on base. Most Community Center facilities are available to use for meetings, conferences, birthday parties, and other occasions. And, most of the equipment is free to use or available at a nominal cost.

Need some instruction?

Not to worry. Community Center staff are readily available to provide guidance on check out procedures for the recreational equipment and available rooms. If they don’t have what you are looking for—they can lead you to the right location!

Want to learn something new?

Community Centers have what you want. Dance, music, voice, martial arts, parent/child classes, drivers’ education, scrap booking, performing arts classes, money management, resume writing, computer classes, cooking, and CPR are just some of the classes available at Air Force Community Centers.

Don’t see the classes you want?

Don’t worry. Each center has classes designed specifically for the local installation; no two centers are identical. If you don’t see a particular class offered, check with your Community Center and request it.

So what are you waiting for?

Quit being bored and get down to your Community Center today.

Air Force Chess is for Everyone

Are you a strategic thinker? Then you probably like chess. The Air Force Chess Program is offered through your local base community center.

Air Force Chess also includes base and Air Force-level tournaments. Anyone eligible to use the Community Center can play, but if you’re active duty with a knack for the game you might be able to participate in the Inter-Service and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) chess tournament. But it all starts here – so start playing chess today at your local base Community Center.
