Recreational Sports
The Recreational Sports Division provides adult and youth sports leagues along with tournaments, the Brian Waterbury Memorial Rock to Pier Run, and the Junior Lifeguard program. The Recreational Sports Division also works with youth and adult sports advisory boards to provide All-Star opportunities for some youth sports leagues. Our youth sports programs would not be possible without the support of our volunteers and sponsors. If you are interested in volunteering to coach, be a committee member, or sponsoring a team, please let us know. You can make the difference in the life of a child.
