Milford Parks and Recreation has kicked it’s winter sports schedule into gear now that the holidays are over. There are programs available for children and adults in order to promote a healthy, active lifestyle.

“Indoor soccer for 11 to 13 year old children still has openings,” Brad Dennehy, Director of Parks and Recreation said. “The cost is $50 and the program is held on Sundays from 3:15 to 4 PM at the Boys and Girls Club. There are wait list options available for seven and eight year old soccer programs which are held from 1:45 PM until 2 PM on Sundays at the Boys and Girls Club. Unfortunately, our nine and ten as well as our five and six indoor soccer leagues are full.” The indoor soccer programs run from January 8 through February 19.

Other sports that have waitlist options available include Instructional Basketball for ages six and seven which runs from January 10 through February 21. The program is held on Tuesdays from 6 to 6:45 PM at the Boys and Girls Club. Eight and nine year old basketball, along with 10 and 11 year old basketball with practices on Tuesday and games on Saturday also has a waitlist as does the under 15 basketball league which has practice on Thursday and games on Saturday.

“We also have adult programs available,” Dennehy said. “Our adult drop-in basketball runs from January 21 through March 4. Sessions take place on Wednesday from 6 to 8 PM and on Saturday from 1 to 2:30 PM at the Boys and Girls Club. We also offer adult drop-in pickleball starting January 12 and running through March 2nd. The $60 fee covers the entire length of the program and includes 30 hours of pickleball. Times are Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 to 11 AM.”

Dennehy explained that Milford Parks and Recreation is always looking for volunteers as they play a huge role in making the programs a success. Volunteers are needed for coaching, officiating and event staff. Anyone interested in volunteering can access the volunteer form by clicking here.
