the director’s court winter 2017-2018

2017 has been a great year for new and revitalized play spaces in Redding. In addition to our landmark Kids Kingdom 2 extreme makeover, we added new playground equipment to Country Heights Park, East Oak Park, Rolling Hills Park, and the new Caldwell Jr. Bike Park. These spaces are for you to enjoy and explore, and we have an especially fun way for you to discover them. The ReddingRocks for Parks Contest will run from December 8-17, and the rules are simple. Our mascot, Reddy Racoon, will be painted on a rock and placed in each of the parks listed above. When you find this rock, send us your photo, and your name will be entered in a drawing for a Christmas Gift Certificate. All the details will be listed on our Facebook page. We are also updating our Parks, Trails and Open Space Master Plan. This document plans out future development of these essential recreational facilities thoughtfully and proactively. Cities that plan well for cohesive development will grow well. Neighborhood parks, connecting trails, and opening recreational use to open spaces are the priorities for this update. City and neighborhood parks provide a place for us to have fun and relax, but it turns out that they have other amazing benefits that we hardly ever consider. Parks create an opportunity for kids to enjoy themselves and interact with others in an environment shielded from challenges in their daily lives. When kids play, they develop higher-order cognitive skills that complement classroom learning. They develop problem-solving skills—like trying to figure out how to make it all the way across the monkey bars! Or collaboration and teamwork, like negotiating the rules of a game with other kids. Parks create a space where they can spend time with their families and learn norms of behavior across the community. Access to green spaces influences our health: The Center for Disease Control says there is a direct correlation between having public green spaces and the likelihood that we will exercise. They continue by saying green spaces aid in the decline of obesity nation-wide and associated public health costs. According to Landscape and Urban Planning having access to the outdoors also reduces your stress levels, which will help you live a happier and longer life. Amazing right? A little bit of open space can lead to a healthier life. Fall and winter offer beautiful landscapes in Redding, so button up your coat, put on your helmet, and EXPLORE.

youth sports leagues

REDDING

Youth Basketball League Welcome to Youth Basketball League for boys and girls 3rd-8th grade! Skill development, fitness, teamwork, sportsmanship, participation, and fun are stressed in this league. Participants play one-half of every game from tip off. There is a maximum of two practices allowed per week before league games begin, and a maximum of one practice per week once league games begin. Practices may begin December 4 as arranged by the team coach. There is a mandatory player evaluation for team selection in Hot Shots and Super Stars divisions. Players will be rated during an assessment practice on sport specific skills (dribbling, shooting, passing, and agility). Equitable teams will be created from the player assessment results via a draft. You will receive an evaluation time upon registration.

Hoopsters

Super Stars

Scores and standings will not be kept. Games are played on a full court regulation size basketball hoop, with a youth basketball, 28.5 inch. For instructional purposes, two referees are assigned to each game that will explain to the players why a call is made and show how to avoid it. Four 8 minute quarters with a running clock. No back court pressure or trapping at mid-court. There is no player evaluation or draft for this division; teams are divided based on requests and school attending.

Timer, scorer, and two referees are assigned to each game. Running clock except for free throws, time-outs, injuries, emergencies, and the last two minutes of the 2nd and 4th quarter. No back court pressure except the last 2 minutes of the 2nd and 4th quarter. Three point shots are allowed.

Redding Recreation Division is excited to announce that our Winter, 2018 class offerings are available for ONLINE registration now! For your convenience, we have moved to a new Online Registration System. 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.

Notwithstanding this provision, this will constitute a full release in accordance with its terms.
