New Kersey Rec Jerseys

Kersey Recreation has partnered with SCHEELS to provide new permanent, reversible jerseys to our participants.  These jerseys can be used for all Kersey Rec sports (except baseball and softball) and can be passed down or given to other children in the community when outgrown.  The partnership keep costs low for participants even as the cost for equipment and materials increase.

Team, Player, and Coach Requests

Requests regarding teammates and coaches are welcome and there is a section of the registration that encourages those who would like to play with friends or family to list them.  These requests, however, are dependent on a number of variables.  While most requests can be honored (and our desire is that they are honored), please remember there are some situations where it is not possible given the type of sport, number of registrants, preferred practice times, number of requests for the same coach, and so on.

Note: Requests are only fulfilled based on their viability.  They are NOT honored based on past teams or on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Registration Problems?

If you are having trouble finding or filling out a registration form, check out our Online Registration Guidelines for step-by-step instructions. If you need additional help, give us a call or send an email to recreation@kerseygov.com.

How can I volunteer coach a youth sports team?
Please get in touch with our Director of Community Experience to complete a Background Check and Volunteer Application Form. We are always looking for more community members to help coach our programs!
Can my child play in a higher level league or age division?
Most of our leagues offer the opportunity for kids to ‘play-up’ in age division or grade level leagues. This request can be made straight to the Director of Community Experience for approval. It is the discretion of the Director to promote a child to the next level based on their particular skill or maturity level. Please note that participants cannot ‘play-down’ in age or grade levels.

We offer several opportunities for companies and individuals to sponsor our programs. There are options from Player Scholarships to Team, Program and Event Sponsors. Please contact the Director of Community Experience for more information.

Updates are sent out at least once a week for program registrations, activities and community events. At any time you would like us to take you off the email list, please respond to the same email stating you would like to be removed.

Contact Recreation Department
What time commitment is involved in volunteering to coach a team?
Usually we ask for 3 to 5 hours a week. Most often, leagues are set up with two practice dates and one game date each week. Because most of our leagues require traveling to other communities, we factor that time in as well. You are not required to transport members of your team to sporting events. If you would like to set up a ‘carpool’ procedure with your families, you may do so, but don’t feel obligated to make that happen. Families are responsible to transport their own children to and from game locations.
Do I need to provide equipment for my team?
No. Kersey Recreation will provide the equipment necessary for you to perform your coaching duties and to use in game situations. You can, on your own accord, purchase and/or use your own equipment during practice and game situations. We ask that you appropriately mark your equipment so as not to confuse ownership.
Are you allowed to reserve the parks?
Yes. There is a fee and a damage deposit required when filling out the reservation form. Please keep in mind that when renting the park you are only reserving the picnic pavilions, not the entire park.
Does the Town rent out the Community Center?
Yes, there is a fee and damage deposit required. A form needs to be filled out at Town Hall.
