2019 Programs, Events, and Projects:

We are currently accepting Lifeguard applications for our 2019 beach

We are looking forward to having our single tennis court resurfaced in 2019.  We will be adding pickle ball lines to our double tennis courts and are excited to bring this popular activity to our town. 

Adult Pickle-Ball
Hi All,  Our adult pickleball program will start this Monday, 4/15 in the Sandwich Elementary school gym at 6:00pm.  This program will run every Monday evening from 6:00 until 8:00pm.  This is a great program for beginners.  We happily welcome more experienced players to join us, and you may be asked to help demonstrate and instruct newer players, fair playing time will be given to everyone.  We will have two courts set up for this program.  We are happy to provide paddles for everyone.  Please wear comfortable athletic clothing, and carry your gym shoes and put them on inside.  We look forward to seeing you this Monday at 6:00pm.  Please contact me with any questions.

Youth Spring Sports Information
Please see spring sports calendar for program dates (attached).  Please check out our Adult Pickle Ball Program Mondays 6-8pm in the SCS gym.  The youth indoor futsal program will begin on Monday 4/29, registration below.

FUTSAL: *PLAYERS MUST HAVE SHIN GUARDS, ATHLETIC CLOTHING, AND APPROPRIATE FOOTWEAR TO PARTICIPATE IN EACH PRACTICE.*  Futsal is an indoor soccer inspired game.  The game play is very similar to soccer.  I am new to this sport, but eager to introduce this to the SCS kids.  We will offer this program in the SCS gym after vacation.  The program will be right after school with Grades 1-3 on Mondays.  Grades 4-6 on Thursdays. Program will end at 3:45 each day. (registration on back)

 1st – 3rd Grade.  Players will be met at SCS at 2:35 and walked to Quimby field by volunteer chaperones.  Practice ends at 3:45. This four-week program will focus on skill development, field positioning, and the rules of soccer. 
4th-6th Grade.  Players will be met at SCS at 2:35 and walked to Quimby field by volunteer chaperones.  Practice ends at 4:00. This group will focus on advanced skill development, player positions, and strategy.

Track and Field:  3rd – 6th Grade.  This program will focus on events at the Granite State Track & Field meets (formerly Hershey).  We will work on track events from 50-meter dash to 1600-meter run, softball throw, and long jump.  We will invite participants to compete in the Granite State regional meet on June 15, with a chance to move on to the state meet on June 28.  Students in this program are encouraged, but not required, to participate in the regional meet.  This program will be a fun opportunity for kids to train for, and participate in, a track meet. 

Softball –We are excited to bring this offering to the sandwich community.  This program is for girls in grades 2-6.  Parent volunteers will help make this program a success, so please come ready to play.  This will likely be a non-league activity, with no games against other communities, but a lot of great skill building drills for hitting, fielding, running, and throwing.

Tennis: All Grades: 
I will be leading an abbreviated two-week tennis program in the Spring designed to introduce the sport to beginners, and to provide helpful instruction for players already familiar with the sport.  Sandwich recreation runs a tennis program throughout July, and any SCS students are welcome to participate in both the Spring and Summer program.

T-Ball: First Grade, Kindergarten, and children who will be five (5) years old before January 1, 2020
.  T-ball is a precursor to baseball. This program will introduce kids to the game and help them learn the fundamentals of the sport of baseball.  This fun and safe program will rely on parent volunteers.  This program will be on Saturday mornings on Quimby Field.  More info Here: T-Ball

Sandwich rec will not be responsible for your children on any day an activity is cancelled.  You will receive notification by noon on any day an activity is cancelled
