Do I have to purchase the additional insurance for my child to participate in parks and recreation activities?
We require that participants purchase the recreation insurance for various programs such as our athletics, tae kwon do, cheerleading, gymnastics, summer camp and others. Not all our programs have this requirement so please ask when registering.

Yes. All children who register will go through a draft process to make sure the teams are as even as possible. We have minimum playing requirements and all coaches must adhere to them.
Are volunteers put through background checks?
Yes. We background check our coaches annually. We also are required to background check any people teaching recreation classes that are working with children.
Can I get a refund if I am not happy with a program?
We will offer a refund after the first class if you are not happy with a program. We do not offer refunds beyond that point as the instructors are paid based on the amount of participants in their class.
Do you prorate the cost of classes if I begin late?
No. We do not prorate our fees based on the number of classes in a session. We will offer a rate of one-half the fee once half the class has expired. We do not offer this rate at the beginning of a session if you are only going to be attending for the first half.

How do I organize a block party?
STEP 1:
Distribute flyers inviting neighbors to meet to discuss a block party. At the meeting, discuss possible dates and who will do what.

Distribute sign-up sheets for tables, chairs, glasses, plates, napkins, utensils, barbecue grills, side dishes and other party essentials. Have plenty of trash cans and bin for recycling bottles and cans. Rent a portable toilet if necessary.
STEP 3:
Plan the food and drinks. Call it international night and have every family make a dish that is unique to its heritage. Or, have everyone bring their own food to grill. This is a surprisingly effective way to get strangers to mingle easily - they feel less awkward with something to do.
STEP 4:
Dress up the block with colorful decorations. Buy lots of balloons and havee veryone tie them to trees and fences on their property. You might consider a block theme color and decorate accordingly. Ask each family to make a banner to display on its front lawn. Hang pinatas for the kids. Tiki torches and lots of twinkling lights are festive when the sun sets.
STEP 5:
Organize entertainment. Bring in pony rides or a mobile petting zoon or rent an inflatable jumping structure for the kids. Ask the neighborhood fire station to send an engine by if its available. Plan party games for kids and adults alike, such as water balloon toss and an egg race.
STEP 6:
Rock the street with music everyone will enjoy. Hook up a CD player outside or splurge on live music.
STEP 7:
