If you cannot make these hours, please call and we will set something up. Because we are a small department, we are not in the office at all times. Rifle Recreation is committed to supporting the AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT. Please call us if you require special assistance for participation in our programs.
Deadlines Why does Rifle Recreation have deadlines? Why does Rifle Recreation charge late fees?
Some activities we have our deadlines over a month before the activity starts, such as youth baseball. The reason the registration deadline is so early is because we need to complete the following before the season begins: Split players up into teams Order uniforms Meet with the other towns to make game schedules Make sure we have enough coaches Make sure we have enough sponsors for the teams Make sure we have enough equipment for each of the teams Have a coaches meeting to schedule practices Why do we charge a late fee? The foremost reason is to have participants register on time. After a deadline has passed, we need to do extra work for a new participant to be enrolled such as: Ordering an extra uniform. This costs us more after our initial order, we save money with bulk orders Ordering extra equipment Contacting the coach or instructor with the new information, since rosters have usually been distributed Rifle Recreation puts limits on the amount of children on a team for the following reasons: Extra players on teams effect all participants playing time Kid management (the more kids, the harder it is for the volunteer coaches) Equipment (we make sure there is enough equipment, i.e. basketballs, for each child) To avoid these hassles, register before the registration deadline. Take a look at the Activity Registration Dates page
Why does Rifle Recreation register so early for sports activities? Why canâ€™t we add another child to a full team? We receive these questions often, especially after deadlines have passed. Deadlines are set so we have time to organize activities. Most deadlines are set a week before an activity begins. Usually, these activities need just a head count so we have
