Snow may be on the ground, but the Town of Greenwich Parks and Recreation Department is already preparing for spring activities.
Registration for spring activities will begin on February 1 for various activities, including co-ed youth t-ball and small fry baseball, boys junior baseball, girls softball, group swimming lessons, Mighty Mites soccer, and skateboard clinics.
Residents are encouraged to register early as these programs are very popular and always well-subscribed.
Additionally, residents are asked to consider supporting a child in need by donating to the Town of Greenwich Parks and Recreation Scholarship Fund. The Greenwich Parks & Recreation Scholarship Fund provides Greenwich’s youth access to recreational programs. Through the Scholarship Fund, income-eligible families will have exposure to positive experiences and active lifestyles, as well as opportunities to gain and refine life skills through our recreational programs.
“The goal of the Scholarship Fund is to ensure every child who wants to participate in one of our programs can,” said Scott Johnson, Chairman of the Town of Greenwich Board of Parks and Recreation.
“Structured sports and recreational activities help our youth develop their self-confidence and social skills through teamwork. We believe that all children, regardless of their family’s financial situation,
should have the opportunity to participate in the Town’s recreational programming to learn and grow through sports and other activities. By starting the fundraising now, the Parks and Recreation Department will have adequate time to determine which scholarships to distribute by early spring.
The Scholarship Fund is one of the primary focuses of the Town of Greenwich Parks and Recreation Foundation. “Our goal is to make sure that the Scholarship Fund is sustainable over the years so we can continue to meet the financial needs of our community,” Johnson said.
The Greenwich Parks & Recreation Scholarship Fund is entirely supported through donations from local businesses, community service organizations, corporations, and individuals. All contributions to the Fund go directly to support scholarships for Greenwich’s youth.
The mission of the Town of Greenwich Parks & Recreation Department is to deliver high-quality leisure time opportunities through safe, well-organized, and affordable activity programs and special events.
The Parks & Recreation Department facilitates an array of leisure opportunities for all age groups that enhance Town residents’ physical, intellectual, social, and cultural growth and development.
The department ensures reasonable access to all programs by bridging physical and economic gaps that could impede participation.
