Ellington parks and rec soccer registration open now

Fall soccer registrations  are being accepted at either the recreation office or via active-net (Town of Ellington registration system). Check the updated parks and recreation page (Town of Ellington website) for the recreation division evaluation dates and time frames. Recreation division teams will participate in practices and games within Ellington only, while ‘travel’ teams will compete in both home and away matches, beginning the weekend of Sept. 7-8, 2013.
The summer day camp (Center School) and waterfront (Sandy Beach/Crystal Lake) are available open until Aug. 16 and Aug. 18, respectively.
The parks and recreation department implemented the ImPACT test program in the spring of 2012, targeting the youth programs.
ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and cognitive testing) is the first, most-widely used, and most scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system.
Please look for more information via email as the fall schedule gets closer.
