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.
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.
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.

The registration fee typically includes a portion of the cost of entry fees, league fees, referee fees, and equipment. The City also provides uniforms and essential equipment required to play. Additional equipment may be recommended for players to wear or bring on their own. More detailed information will be provided by the sport commissioner or coach. At the conclusion of each sport season parents are responsible for returning all loaned equipment/uniforms. It should be laundered and in good condition upon return. If equipment is not returned and in acceptable condition, the parent will be billed (credit card charged).

The registration fee refund policy is as follows: A parent must request a refund by contacting the Recreation Office at 610-250-6711 prior to the first practice. No refunds will be made after that date for each sport. Refunds may be partially approved due to special circumstances of injury, illness, or family relocation. Refunds will be processed if there is no team or league due to insufficient registrations. Refunds may take 1 to 2 weeks to process after the request.
