attend Bobby S and Nancy M sent some handouts that will be usefull with some tips and techniques to
communicate with your players.

Park Patrons, Coaches and Parents
We are continuing to try and improve parking areas at EB Hamilton and the
Football/Soccer Area. In the interim please assist us and be courteous to
others. TCRD also wants to remind everyone that smoking and alcohol
are not allowed on county property especially at Recreation Events. We will
first ask you to cooperate with the rules and if necessary will call Local Law
Enforcement to assist when needed. Please help us keep our recreation
environment a positive one for our children, participants, and spectators.
We need you and your assistance is greatly needed, during games regarding
parking and spectator behavior.
TCRD strives to make every program that we offer the best experience for the
participants and their families. We have people that are triple parking and blocking
cars in the main parking lot and the dirt parking lot. We will be extending the
parking lot and will have lines painted on the ground to enable easier parking.
Please park within the boundaries noted and leave alley ways open for pedestrian
and vehicular traffic. Also, the dirt road which leads to the parking area behind
the fields will be closed.
All vehicles must park in the main parking lot for baseball and softball games.
If needed the grassy/dirt area where we parked for Football and Soccer are also
available. The Pavilion Parking area is reserved for those who have rented the
Please park in designated parking areas.
Spectators and Park Patrons:
We are also having a problem with parents standing in front of others seated in chairs,
bleacher areas or by the fence watching the games and blocking other people’s view
from the stands. Please be courteous and not stand by the fence or in front of park
patrons. Umbrellas are not allowed in the stands. They block other people’s view and
can be a safety hazard.
Thank you for helping us with these issues, and we hope that everyone has a great
time at the games.
