Volunteer Recreation Committee
Mayor Ryan Boebel
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.
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. Participants are EXPECTED to show respect to their team members, volunteers, coaches, other players, spectators and game officials. Participants may not make public displays of anger or disrespect during a game or near an event or activity. 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
Please be aware the recreation programs involve an element of risk or danger for all participants and may cause serious injury or property loss. 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.
Check Policy/Refund Policy
All checks returned because of insufficient funds will be charged a $15.00 service fee.
There will be NO refunds of program registration fees unless a program is cancelled due to low enrollment or the person has a verifiable medical illness.
If you have an idea for a new program offering please contact City Hall. Please keep it mind it takes many volunteers to make them all happen.
