TEAM / RECREATION ACTIVITIES 
There are provisions from the Department of Commerce regarding Youth Sports Activities, limited to drills, practices, and lessons with no contact, and allowing 6 ft. social distancing.  
 
 
 
2020 Tremont Travel Ball Program 
We apologize for any delay in outlining the decisions for the 2020 Tremont Travel Ball Teams.  We have consulted each coach to help make the best decision for each team for the 2020 schedule.  Though the travel teams operate under the umbrella of the park district, they each operate on season budgets and schedules independently.    At the park district, we recognize that our volunteer coaches have had tough decisions this season and we know that they each want what is best for their individual teams.  
The Phase III Guidelines for Reopening from the Illinois Department of Commerce (DCEO)  (see link above) outlined new options for recreation in June,  allowing instructions for one on one training, coaching and practice with 6-foot distancing guidelines.  The Phase III guidelines state, youth sports activities are limited to drills and practices and do not include contact or competitive games. It should be noted that these guidelines are subject to update at the end of June.  Our travel coaches and teams decided independently whether to wait and see if they could play later in the summer or to cancel their season.  During June, practices can be done with the kids in groups of 10 or less, following social distance guidelines.  Our dugouts, bleachers and park restrooms are closed. spectators are not suggested unless there is a need for assistance to a player.  We are asking that for ALL parents not coaching, please either stay in the parking lot or in their own lawn chair, socially distanced from the field and each other.  We asked that parents follow these guidelines to allow practices to continue.
If your season did not cancel and you are not comfortable with your child playing this season, for whatever reason, or are unable to play a later summer schedule, we will support your decision and ask that you discuss options with the individual coaches.  Teams are self-funded and player fees and fundraising provide uniforms, equipment, and field maintenance; therefore, refunds will be adjusted accordingly per team. 
If the restrictions go beyond the end of June, our coaches will inform their team/parents and the Tremont Park District of their plans moving forward with game schedules.
 
 
2020 In House Recreation Ball Program - With much regret, our 2020 in-house recreational ball program was canceled April 30.   Our in house league operates with 6-7 surrounding communities and the majority of those communities canceled their 2020 rec ball season.  With both restrictions and safety for all participants in mind, we made the decision and refunds were issued.    
 
INFORMATION UPDATES - We will do our best to keep you informed, we will update our Facebook pages, send member emails and update this website. We will continue to assess day by day and make changes necessary to keep you and our staff safe.

2020 Recreational Ball Information - Friday, May 1, 2020

Parents, Players, Coaches and Volunteers,
It is with great sadness and regret we announce the cancellation of our 2020 in-house recreational baseball, softball and t-ball league.  Our in house league operates with 6-7 surrounding communities and the majority of those communities have canceled their 2020 rec ball season.  Your cooperation with early registration this year was appreciated, however, with the new directives from Governor Pritzker, and the above cancelations, we made this difficult decision to ensure the safety of all participants. We will be issuing full registration refunds for our in-house ball program by check starting May 7 and anticipate having them all sent by May 14.  If you do not receive your refund check by May 20 please contact us.
We will continue to follow recommended state and local guidelines and hope to be able to offer summer and fall programs once restrictions are lifted. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay safe.
The Tremont Park District Board of Commissioners

Pool Renovation Update - Friday, October 19, 2018

Pool Renovation In Progress
 
You may have noticed that renovations are underway at Tremont Community Pool. With the help of Tremont Betterment Association, the pool liner has been removed and crews are working to smooth and repair the pool bed so that a new liner can be installed. We expect the smoothing process to be complete within the next few days, barring a change in conditions. A great deal of time and effort has gone into this project in order for it to move forward. Tremont Area Park District is grateful to TBA for their leadership, funding and time. We are looking forward to swim season 2019! Thank you for your support and patience during our renovations. Project updates will be posted here.  Thank you.
