Youth Recreation Programs


Garner Parks and Recreation Youth Programs Philosophy
  1. All children in our community who meet the basic program registration requirements will have the opportunity to participate in our youth programs.
  2. The Garner Parks and Recreation Department will offer programs at a reasonable cost while providing quality facilities, quality equipment and recognition to both volunteers and participants.
  3. The Garner Parks and Recreation staff will work to recruit volunteers who will act as role models, mentors and facilitators.
  4. All participants in youth programs shall be treated fairly, and without regard to race, color, disability, religion, sex or national origin.
  5. The Garner Parks and Recreation youth programs, practices, and games should be an enjoyable, challenging, and a learning experience for all participants. 
  6. Those people in coaching and leadership positions with the Garner Parks and Recreation Department youth athletics whether paid or volunteer shall lead by example through the promotion of fair play and good sportsmanship.
  7. The Garner Parks and Recreation programs aim to focus on the unconditional aspects of any game (hustle, drive, good attitude, and being a great teammate) and the development of the athlete – not the score.
