Parks & Recreation
The City of Easton Recreation Bureau currently offers several sports, including volleyball, basketball, football, soccer, cheerleading, baseball, softball, lacrosse, and soccer, all for children.
- Do volunteer coaches get a background check?
Yes. All volunteers taking on a leadership role within a recreational sport (coach, assistant coach, team mom/dad, scorekeeper, etc.) will undergo a 50-state criminal and sex offender background check. The Recreation Bureau pays for the background check. There are a number of disqualifiers for a volunteer. The City of Easton follows the disqualification guidelines set by the National Alliance for Youth Sports.
- I registered my child for a sport before the deadline, but I haven't heard anything. When will I be contacted with further information and by whom?
After the registration deadline ends, depending on age and sport there may be a coaches' draft or skill evaluation. If there are not enough participants registered, staff may extend the registration deadline or open up a registration waitlist for participants. Please be patient. You will be contacted either by athletic staff or by a coach during the week leading up to the published date of the first practice. If you are not contacted within the week, please call 610-250-6711.
- I missed the registration deadline. Can I still sign my child up?
If you missed the registration deadline, go to the Parks and Recreation webpage and look for an announcement that the deadline has been extended or a waitlist has been created. If openings become available, waitlist participants will be contacted by the athletic staff in the order that they registered on the waitlist.
