The Recreation Committee was pleased this year to again sponsor programs to a wide cross section of our community. Our committee serviced over 1100 residents ranging from 5 years old to 80 years young.
Our mission remains the same. We provide great programs to our citizens, we want all of our citizens to have the opportunity to participate. The Recreation Committee encourages diversity and our programs are ADA accessible.
Our year round Exercise Program continues to serve our mature adult population quite nicely; Carolyn Stowell has been leading our program for many years now with a very loyal following. We hope to be adding some new and interesting programs this year in this area.
Except for a small winter pause Adult Volleyball continues to be a bit hit from fall to spring with four teams playing at the high school. Melissa Marshall continues to direct this program.!
This winter we are again sponsoring youth basketball. This is for boys and girls from grade 1 to grade 6. Every Saturday this winter you can find over one hundred and fifty children participating in this terrific program.
Phil Tanson our Director has done a great job at expanding our program. We now have the older participants playing on Friday nights also. We are pleased with the turn out in numbers and the direction the program has taken. Of course the children are thrilled to have this Saturday activity! The program would not be a success without the great number of adult and youth volunteers who participate so faithfully each week.
This spring we will again sponsor Tee-Ball for our younger grade school children. A variety of folks will be involved in helping out this year.
Our Tennis program continues to blossom. Again our participation was at an all time high. We are fortunate to welcome back Bailey See to our program. She has tremendous experience and will again bring Rockport's Tennis program to a new level. Her experience is vast and she is a Pro. Bailey received her Masters Degree in Recreation with her thesis on Tennis Instruction! Welcome Bailey!
The Recreation Committee would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of all of our volunteers that give so many hours to benefit our community. We would not have these wonderful programs without these committed individuals.
Our pledge remains to keep our programs affordable for the community while maintaining the highest standards possible. We have established a revolving account that allows new programs to develop without affecting our budget. As always we welcome new members to our committee, volunteers to help with the programs and of course all ideas are invaluable.
