Cut Printing Costs With Ecofont Cut back on printer ink this winter by trying a new sotware called Ecofont. The software transforms common fonts into eco-friendly versions by insterting tiny holes in the letters. The holes are barely visable when printed but can reduce ink use by 50%. Visit www.ecofont.com for details.

All programs have minimum and maximum enrollments. If the minimum enrollment is not met one week prior to the program date, the Park District may have to cancel, postpone or consolidate the program with another program. If the program is cancelled, full credits will be issued.

Rain barrels were a useful addition to any house during this summer’s drought, but remember to remove them before below freezing temperatures set in. Water that freezes will, of course, expand and possibly crack your barrel and break your connection hoses.

Sports League FAQs

What happens if I register after the deadline?

How do I register? Register on line at csparks.org or use the registration form in this guide. By registering your child you agree to comply with the Parent Code of Conduct which can be accessed on the home web page of each youth sports league and is discussed by the coach at their preseason parent meeting.

How do I register for tee ball, soccer, and high school leagues? Registration is by grade level. Players are to be registered for the grade the player is currently in. Preschoolers must be entering kindergarten for the 2013/14 school year.

How do I register for youth baseball?

Players placed on a wait list are not guaranteed placement on a team. If you register before team formation the player will be moved off the wait list if there are enough to form an additional team. However, if you register after team formation, or if another team cannot be formed, placement will only be done when a team or teams are below the established maximum number of team participants. Players will not be added to any team one week prior to the first scheduled game.

Can I request for my child to be placed on a specific team?

Cut Printing Costs With Ecofont Cut back on printer ink this winter by trying a new sotware called Ecofont. The software transforms common fonts into eco-friendly versions by insterting tiny holes in the letters. The holes are barely visable when printed but can reduce ink use by 50%. Visit www.ecofont.com for details.

All programs have minimum and maximum enrollments. If the minimum enrollment is not met one week prior to the program date, the Park District may have to cancel, postpone or consolidate the program with another program. If the program is cancelled, full credits will be issued.

Rain barrels were a useful addition to any house during this summer’s drought, but remember to remove them before below freezing temperatures set in. Water that freezes will, of course, expand and possibly crack your barrel and break your connection hoses.
