Winter

Youth Sport Update:  On December 4th the state updated guidelines for Community Sports Programs that align with the Maine Principals Association timeline for winter sports. Currently, due to these guidelines that we strictly follow, we are required to hold off starting basketball clinics/practices until at least  January 4th.  We are looking at starting some of our basketball offerings at that time.

Our goal is to offer basketball or other sport activities for the youth in our community in a safe manner and by following the Community Sports Guidelines. We have put information about or league as well as some outdoor activities like x-country skiing, alpine ski lessons, winter explorers. We are always looking for more ideas with possible instructors to lead.  These guidelines also don't allow us to host doubles pickleball.  Basketball hoops are limited to 1individual shooter or 1 family to a hoop. Please use the sign up genius to reserve a hoop.

We have included the link to the Community Sports Guidelines. For those looking for more information on the guidelines. https://www.maine.gov/decd/checklists/community-sports

Provided is a list of programs that are usually held during the Winter Season. Once the program is open for registration you will be able to select any name to get further information about that program.

Registration

Please register for programs by the due date on the registration form. Nothing jeopardizes a recreation program more than waiting until the last minute to register. Our programs require facility scheduling, staffing and supplies - your prompt enrollment will assist us to ensure programs run as planned and are not canceled due to low enrollment.

For program registration, we now accept most major credit/debit cards at our office location during normal business hours. New registrants and those wishing to make changes to their household information we have on file are asked to complete our
Household Information Form (PDF). Thank you!
