The Athletics Division offers a variety of team and individual sports programs, leagues, and events for youth and adults, in both traditional and contemporary athletic venues. These programs enhance the health and well being of the participants involved, as well as impacting the social and economic wellness of the community.

Adult Athletic programs provide recreational opportunities for community residents of all skill levels and ages. Emphasis is placed on fair play and sportsmanship.

Youth Athletic Programs focus on three main goals of safety, fun and participation ensuring that everyone plays.  Positive coaching, sportsmanship and mutual respect, assist in development of players' self-worth and confidence.
