One of the most remarkable aspects of the Parks & Rec basketball season was the sense of camaraderie that showed in each game. Spectators witnessed players encouraging one another, displaying good sportsmanship and celebrating both their own achievements and those of their opponents. It was a true testament to the power of community and the positive impact that sports can have on fostering relationships and building character.

But it wasn’t just about the highlights and the scores. It was about the lessons learned, the personal growth and the memories made. The Parks & Rec basketball season provided an opportunity for players to develop not only their athletic abilities but also their teamwork, communication, etc.

The success of the Parks & Rec basketball season would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of the coaches, volunteers, referees and organizers who selflessly gave their time and energy to make it all happen. Their unwavering commitment to promoting sportsmanship, fair play and inclusivity deserves our utmost appreciation.

Leap Year Party participants have fun celebrating the special day!

Leap Year Celebration & Party
The leap year party that was held this past leap day on February 29 was a memorable and exciting event. With the extra day in the year, Suffield Youth Services and Parks & Rec were eager to make the most of the occasion. From 5:30-7:30, youth in grades 3-8 participated in leap year themed activities such as long jump, high jump, potato sack races and a limbo contest as well. Those who attended were fed pizza, snacks, and cookies. While participants ate, kids created arts & crafts including a time capsule. The time capsule had a couple of prompts about who they are and where they see themselves in four years. Next Leap Day in 2028, they will receive their letter to themselves in the mail and be able to look back at who they were back in 2024, four years younger.

As we bid farewell to the winter season, we eagerly anticipate the arrival of the spring Parks & Rec programs! Spring is just around the corner, and we have so many enjoyable activities for you and your family!
