Summer recreation group meets at TMS

The Green Hills Recreation Association held its second meeting Sunday, February 28th at 6:00 PM at the Trenton Middle School where several items of business were discussed including the establishment of priorities, future recreational activities and the formation of summer youth t-ball, baseball and softball teams.

Registration forms for youth baseball and softball will still be accepted until Friday, March 4. Forms can be dropped off at American Family Insurance, Grundy County Health Department, or any Trenton school. Currently, the coaches committee is looking for additional boys age 13-14 to field a team.

All girls playing softball, ages 7 and up, will need to provide a copy of their birth certificate. Birth certificates can be dropped off at American Family Insurance, Grundy County Health Department, or any Trenton school. Alternatively, birth certificates can be scanned and emailed to [email protected].

All summer coaches have a mandatory meeting Sunday, March 6 at 5:00 PM in the TMS/THS Library Media Center. During the coaches meeting, information for background checks will be collected and drafts will be held for all age groups above t-ball. Coaches will be contacted this week with more information. As of 2/28/2016, for t-ball, baseball and softball there are 308 players signed up to play forming 29 teams overall (see attached sheet for specific breakouts).

In an effort to communicate with the public, Green Hills Recreation Association has created a website and a number of social media accounts.
