Participation Policy

Participation policies in all youth sports programs assume that each child who registers to play will actually play in all scheduled games. Our philosophy is that winning is secondary to learning and experiencing the excitement that comes with playing the game.

Other Programmed Activities

The Community Recreation Division offers other programmed activities for youth and adults. Community Recreation includes after school programs, Summer Day Camp, Spring Day Camp, Special Olympics, Senior Citizens’ Day, Swimming and Walking Clubs, and Supervised Free Play and Supervised Computer Access at the Memorial Park Facility.


Sponsorships are necessary for any program to be successful. We have sponsors for basketball, baseball, softball and football. The sponsorship includes the company name on the back of jerseys, plaques for the participating business and the reference to business’ name in the newspaper when the league standings are reported. With sponsorships of business, civic clubs and individuals, the Ware County Recreation Department is able to provide the children of Ware County a better program. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please call our office.
