COVID-19 updates:

We have been able to hold fun and safe programs since the pandemic began. As we move forward, make sure that you stay in touch with our social media platforms as we inform the community about virtual and in person programs. We will continue to publish one guide per month online at this website.  We may need to cancel, postpone, or modify program offerings based on health orders that are in place at the time of the program. If we cancel the program due to COVID-19, we will refund you. 

To view our full Recreation Program COVID-19 policy, see our COVID-19 impacts page.

Due to the increase in concern for concussions in youth sports, there is now a Wisconsin Concussion Law. Our department requires all participants to review the
Concussion Agreement and Information prior to registering for programs. Our participant safety is our number one concern!
