  • If there are not enough registrations to make a team in your child's grade division we'll be unable to make a team and you'll receive notification asap.
  • Occasionally when we don't have enough kids to make a team - we have the option to combine with another town within the district. This is arranged by Recreation Directors and if it is an option you'll receive notification.

Harpswell Recreation is a volunteer organization. We rely on parents to be coaches, assistants and helpers. Without your help these programs are not possible. Please consider volunteering this season to make a great experience for our kiddos!
