The Monroe County Recreation Department opened its online sign-ups for fall sports on July 1.
Parents may sign their children up at the department’s website mocorec.org. Walk-in registration at the Youth Center will also be held starting Aug. 1 running until Aug. 17. The registration fee is $30.
Football age groups will include: two 6U (flag football or tackle) leagues as well as tackle football leagues for ages 8U, 10U and 12U.
Soccer age groups will include: 6U, 8U, 10U, 13U and 16U while cheerleading will include cheerleaders age 5-12. Also, if enough three-year-olds sign up for soccer, the department may have a “Muppet League.” Ages are as of Sept. 1.
If the rec department does not already have a copy of your child’s birth certificate on file, the department will need copy. Persons who register online should bring a copy to the youth center.
For football, parents will provide a helmet, a mouthguard, shoulder pads, pants with pads and cleats. For soccer, parents will provide shin guards, cleats and shorts. For cheerleading, the uniform fee is an additional $20, which includes a top, skirt, bloomers and pompoms. Cheerleaders who have a uniform from last year that still fits may wear that one instead of buying a new one.
