With the fall sports season now under way, the recreation department would like to remind all residents that they give preference to the various organized Village Youth Organizations (GCAA, Centennials, Thunder, etc.) for their intramural and travel league programs. When the fields are not in use by these youth organizations, the recreation department, or a group holding a valid field permit, these fields are available for use by village residents.
Additionally, for reasons of safety, do not move or relocate any soccer goals on any fields. To ensure a safe facility, goals must be fastened to the ground. Moving goals without properly securing them can lead to a dangerous condition for the youngsters using the fields.
Playability of the fields at recreation facilities will be determined by the recreation department employee on duty at the fields.
