Due to the closing of the Community school due to Covid
Vassalboro Rec is issuing the following guidance for all activities.
We are asking all parents to be responsible and honest.

1. If your child is in quarantine at the school do not come to Rec activities.
2. If parents or children are sick in any way do not come to Rec activities.
3. Please social distance, even outdoors, to help slow the spread.
4. Keep your hands as clean as possible. Use our sanitizer after touching face or mouth.

Please be mindful that outbreaks are occuring in our community.
We want to keep our activities going but can not do that without the help of everyone
that participates in Vassalboro Rec.



Recreation Department Mission Statement:

The Recreation Department is committed to giving all Vassalboro children the opportunity to participate in group and individual athletic programs that encourage healthy lifestyles while keeping all participants safe.

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.)

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!
