EXECUT I VE LET T ER Salutations, Fort Morgan! The last few winter months have been filled with tons of indoor recreation. We installed our portable indoor turf system on Court 2. in January and had it out through Spring Break. There were a plethora of activities including youth/adult soccer, football, and disc golf. We even had a few kids throwing a baseball out there during Spring Break! These last few months have had a lot of adult programming. We ran our first corn hole league with 34 teams! Our men's and women's basketball programs have 15 teams and adult dodgeball has 6 teams. Our pickle ball open gyms have been full on Thursday nights. We also ran our first Daddy Daughter Dance with over 130 participants! It’s been a great winter! As we look forward, we wanted to inform you of upcoming programs. Youth baseball and swim lesson registration has begun (page 11, 18-21)! Don’t wait to the last minute to get registered as spots are limited!

GENERAL INFORMATION

C O M M U N I T Y S E R V I C E S D E PA R T M E N T S DIRECTORY

All of the City of Fort Morgan’s youth sport leagues are ran by volunteer coaches. This keeps the cost affordable for families so children can play and have fun. Even if you have no coaching experience, please apply! We have the necessary tools to help you provide a great experience for your team. We often do not have enough coaches which delays game schedules and affects the experience for the kids. As a coach, we ask you to focus on three teachings: teach them how to play the game, teach them excellent sportsmanship, and teach them to have fun! Applicants are subject to a background check and a simple concussion training course before coaching. As a perk, each successful season completed as a volunteer coach results in a $35 credit to your account which can be used for future recreation programs. If interested, please let the receptionist know when you are registering your child for a sport or contact us at (970) 542-3921.

We recommend this request system is used for individuals who may have limited transportation to practices and/or games. This request cannot be for a specific coach!
