Ocean City Recreation and Parks Designated “Better Sports for Kids Quality Program Provider”
Ocean City, MD – (January 11, 2022): Ocean City has joined an elite group of organizations from around the world having recently been designated as a “Better Sports for Kids Quality Program Provider” by the National Youth Sports Alliance (NAYS). Through an extensive review process, NAYS has recognized Ocean City Recreation and Parks as meeting or exceeding the highest standard of excellence for youth sports league offerings.
Northside Park plays host to over 1,000 local school-aged athletes each year who partake in flag football, soccer, basketball, and futsal leagues. With the help of dedicated and certified volunteer coaches, children learn the fundamentals of the sport, enjoy some healthy competition and most importantly, learn how to display characteristics of sportsmanship, teamwork, and hard work.
“We are very honored to receive this designation,” commented Recreation Superintendent Kate Gaddis. “Our staff and volunteer coaches work very hard to provide the best experiences possible to kids participating in our programs. We strive for our youth clinics and leagues to give education and introduction to sports, provide a positive competitive experience to learn and grow, and most of all we want kids to be active and have fun!”
