What It Means to Volunteer
Volunteering allows the city to successfully organize and run the many programs listed. Without you we are limited in what we can offer! You can make a difference by coaching a team, working the concession stand, running a program, etc. Volunteers/Coaches – run practices/programs, are positive role models, ensure the safety of players/students during games and practices, promote teamwork, and make a difference in a child’s life.
If interested in coaching please indicate it on the registration form.
Code of Conduct for Youth Sports
Our mission is to develop our youth into productive and caring citizens while respecting the uniqueness of each individual. We will encourage all individuals to achieve their full potential. We hope the youth will enjoy the activities, gain knowledge that will be useful in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and develop a positive attitude towards others. Players are EXPECTED to show respect to their team members, coaches, other players, spectators and game officials. Players may not make public displays of anger or disrespect during a game or near game premises. Players are responsible for attending practices and games, and if unable to attend are asked to call their coaches. Coaches have the right to have a player sit on the bench for any misconduct or lack of participation.
Waiver of Liability

The recreation program does not provide nor cover any medical or hospital insurance for participants in our programs; anyone participating in sponsored programs assumes risk of all injuries. An adult signature is required beneath the waiver of liability on all program registration forms.
