The Vassalboro Rec Committee would like to thank the coaches, volunteers, and all those who participated in this year’s very successful winter basketball season. We had 9 teams with over 100 children participating. Great sportsmanship was displayed from all participants from kindergarten through 6th grade! Vassalboro prides itself in displaying a positive attitude and sportsmanship at all levels.

Vassalboro Rec offers the following spring programs:

T-Ball: Co-ed Ages (4-6) - Begins in May through end of school

BASEBALL: Farm (6-8) Minors (7-11) Majors/Little League (9-12)

SOFTBALL: Farm (6-8) Minors (7-11) ASA Majors (9-12)

CLICK HERE FOR THE REGISTRATION FORM.


BASEBALL and SOFTBALL – Clinics will begin the week of March 14. Games will start on or around April 30th. Click HERE for clinic schedule

Volunteering: “America runs on Dunkin’ but Vassalboro Rec Department RUNS ON YOU!”

Adult Volunteers are needed to make these programs RUN SMOOTHLY… The more helping hands there are the less gets left out, mixed up, and undone. When there is a communication breakdown, equipment left behind, umpire scheduling issues etc. it is usually because one or two individuals are trying to do the work of 10. The more volunteers we have to share the load the fewer number of breakdowns encountered during the season.

Volunteer opportunities include Snack Shack Manager, Snack Shack volunteers, Dugout Bookkeepers, Assistant Coaches, Coaches and Field Maintenance Support. The town and Dirigo League require all volunteers to go through a free background check for our children’s safety. If you can and want to volunteer, please do not wait to be asked, STEP UP and offer your help. Don’t be shy or wait to be ask! WE WOULD LOVE YOUR HELP and IDEAS. Coaching may seem like the most difficult thing to volunteer for but most of our coaches begin with the T-Ball children and learn as they go gaining experience right along with the children. You do not have previous experience, only patience and understanding to be a GREAT COACH. For other opportunities contact Jen Fortin, Rec Director; any rec committee member, coach; or contact us on Facebook.

Note to Parents and Spectators: The main goal of the Recreation Program in Vassalboro is for the children to get involved, learn how to interact with their peers through sports, be challenged in a supportive way and overcome these challenges, feel a sense of accomplishment NO MATTER WHAT THE SCORE. This means they need your support as well. Click HERE for an eye opening article on how we SHOULD AND SHOULD NOT support our kids.

Thank you to all of our Coaches and Volunteers who are working hard with our Vassalboro children and maintaining the Vassalboro Recreation Athletic Fields!

Congratulations to the Vassalboro MAJORS BASEBALL TEAM on winning the Dirigo League Championship! Thank you to coaches, Daren Rodrigue, Don Decker, Ryan Desmond and Stephen Polley for your hard work with the team this season! Way to go boys!
