Hyla and her mom, Jennifer Scott, at the Kids KIngdom Grand Opening

The Kids Kingdom Grand Opening was well underway before I took a moment to look around. There was a three-year old beating the bongo while dad whipped out his cell phone, two 12-year old friends spinning each other on the stand up spinner, siblings climbing the rock wall, parents encouraging their son to climb the ladder to the top of the play structure, and so much more. As I turned and faced toward the swing set, I focused in on a mom carrying her girl towards the Zero-G chair swing. I couldn’t take my eyes off of them. Hyla was born with Moat-Wilson Syndrome which manifests as Cerebral Palsy, inhibiting her from free play. At age 11, this lovely and patient girl is almost as tall as her mom, Jen Scott. “She LOVES to swing, and it has been part of her therapy,” said Jen, “but she always needs to sit on my lap for that extra support.” Even though Hyla is non-verbal, when Jen and Hyla’s sister, Faith, carefully sat her down in the Zero-G Chair, it was clear that Hyla was delighted. A small, sweet smile lit up her face as she gently swung back and forth, back and forth. I turned to her two grandmas, who were clapping their hands and taking photos with tears streaming down their faces. At that moment I knew this playground would make a big difference for Hyla and many other kids. Thank you, each and everyone, for helping create a playground where people of all abilities can play together. Be Active and Be Well,

September 11-October 26 January-May

Come learn, play, have fun and develop your skills and love of the game! Open to all levels of players, Kindergarten thru 12th graders. In the Fall League, teams are formed by coach request, player request, school attending, and/or luck of the draw- there is no player evaluation. A Player Draft is conducted by a Softball League Representative and all Team Managers working together to divide talent (especially known pitcher and catcher talent) as equally as possible to create well balanced teams that will allow for healthy and fair competition.

Practices can begin September 5th Games will be scheduled September 25th-November 18th mainly on weekday evenings with 6 or 6:30pm game start time. Divisions of play are determined by player’s grade in school. However, in the Fall League, players may choose to play in the division they played in Spring 2017 or the division they will play in Spring 2018. Some will choose to play up to prepare themselves for the following Spring season while others will choose to play down to build confidence. We are anticipating a 10-12 game season which will ultimately be determined by registration numbers. No more than two games/ week/team will be scheduled on the following days and locations: Division

If you have not already done so, log on to www.reddingrecreation.org to register for most classes, camps, sports leagues and events. Follow the easy steps on the online tutorial and you will be on your way to experiencing all that Redding Recreation has to offer.

WALK-IN REGISTRATION The Recreation Office is located at 777 Cypress Avenue, second floor. Office hours are Monday - Friday, 8:00 am-5:00 pm (closed some holidays).

PHONE-IN REGISTRATION We are now accepting Visa, Discover, or Master Card. Call us at (530)225-4095.

REGISTRATION PROCEDURES

• Pre-registration, prior to first class, and full payment is required for all activities, unless otherwise stated. • Please register one week before class begins so class materials may be prepared by instructor.

Fee Assistance Program • We offer fee assistance for qualified low-income City of Redding residents (17 years and younger) for many classes & sports leagues. For more information on fee assistance availability call 225-4095.

General Procedures • A $25 fee will be charged for returned checks in addition to the check amount. • Classes will be cancelled 3-8 days before first class due to insufficient enrollment. Register early to assure your class choice. • Missed classes may not be made up. Class make-ups will be arranged only when Redding Recreation cancels an activity. • In the event your desired class is closed, be sure to request that your name be put on a waiting list. This enables Redding Recreation to document interest, begin new classes, and if possible, to meet greater demand.
