The Recreation Department is pleased to sponsor programs to a wide cross section of our community. Our department services residents ranging from 5 years old to 85 years young.


Our mission remains the same.  We want all of our citizens to have the opportunity to participate; by offering quality programs for a reasonable fee.  The Recreation Department encourages diversity and our programs are ADA accessible.


Our year round Exercise Program has expanded greatly, but our most popular program continues to be senior fitness.



Adult Indoor Soccer continues to be a big hit with sessions running in both the fall and spring. 


Each winter we sponsor youth basketball. This is for boys and girls from grade 1 to grade 6. Each Saturday in the winter you can find over eighty-five children participating in this terrific program. Phil Whitley our Director has done a great job at expanding our program. We are pleased with the turn out in numbers and the direction the program has taken. Of course the children are thrilled to have this Saturday activity! The program would not be a success without the great number of adult and youth volunteers who participate so faithfully each week.


Come spring we sponsor Tee-Ball for our younger grade school children. A variety of folks will be involved in helping out this year. Kevin Merz has been involved in this program for several years, and has now past the torch to Scott Deluca.


Our Tennis program continues to blossom. We are fortunate to have Bailey See direct this program. She has tremendous experience and will again bring Rockport's Tennis program to a new level. Her experience is vast and she is a Pro. Bailey received her Master's Degree in Recreation with her thesis on Tennis Instruction. Stay tuned for more information about our 2015 program schedule.


Each summer you will find many of our children still attending school!  However, it is to attend our Summer Fun Program at Rockport Elementary School. The children of Rockport come and participate in a wide variety of games, sports, arts, crafts, and outdoor activities. This program serves children going into Grades one through five. Our goal is to expand this program to five days a week. We are also planning on starting a program for children entering and through middle school, grades six through eight. Stay tuned for more information about our 2015 program schedule. Fill out this form

The Recreation Department would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of all of our volunteers that give so many hours to benefit our community. We would not have these wonderful programs without these committed individuals. Our pledge remains to keep our programs affordable for the community while maintaining the highest standards possible.  As always we welcome new volunteers to help with the programs and of course all ideas are invaluable.
