Parents, Tonight we kick off the 2019 basketball season. We wanted to let everyone know a few things before we start the season: 1. Please pay special attention to rule 18 in our rules: "One (1) warning will be given to the Head Coach in the event of fan issues. After a warning has been given, the head coach should be given time to address the teams fans. In the event of an unruly fan and after the warning has been given, violation shall result in an Indirect Technical on their Head Coach." Please understand that unruly behavior in the stands will affect your sons/daughters team. You can always address your issues with us on Mondays after a Saturday game. We do also have a code of conduct that will be enforced should it need to be used. 2. We do not have instant replay at our gyms and it's hard enough to find referees. Please understand that this is "recreation basketball" and not competitive or travel league. So if you have issues with anything, you can let the site supervisors know or you or more than welcome to call or e mail us after your game (on Monday after a Saturday game). We cannot help you if your issue is about missed calls or something should have been a foul or not. The referees are human and will make mistakes. 3. Weather related cancellations will be updated on our website at www.bedfordcountyrec.com 4. If you have a game at Bedford Elem: Please bring a chair with you to the gym if you have one. We have limited seating or you are more than welcome to stand for the game. Let's all have a great season and remember that this is about the kids! Thanks
You are viewing the new Bedford County Parks and Recreation website and we invite you to explore it and learn more about our Department and the benefits that you can experience by visiting a park, playing a sport, participating in a programming activity, taking a trip or enjoying some other leisure activity. The website will provide you with a variety of information, allow you to register for many of our programs online and to make reservations to use various picnic shelters and other facilities. The site will be updated on a regular basis and a calendar listing events can be viewed.
The department office is located at 1257 County Farm Rd. which is adjacent to Falling Creek Park. The facility is under going some renovations to better facilitate the staff and to provide space for a variety of programming opportunities including art classes and various exercise classes for all ages. There will be meeting space for your group and the department is coordinating with other organizations in order to provide space within the facility to serve as a resource center for senior adults.
The Bedford County Parks and Recreation Department (BCPRD) was created by the Board of Supervisors on March 27, 1984 in order that a formal administration of public recreational activities could begin. Since its creation, the BCPRD has addressed the leisure needs of the County with available resources and with the intent of providing a wide range of recreational activities for all aspects of Bedford County's population.
Over the years, a great deal of emphasis has been placed upon developing and administering strong youth sports' programs. Lease agreements are maintained with the Bedford County School Board, civic clubs, and athletic associations throughout the County in order that fields and gymnasiums are available for the various youth activities offered throughout the County. The BCPRD coordinates through, and collaborates with, 10 different recreation associations throughout Bedford County to provide the various youth activities. Each association is represented by an Association Supervisor that is contracted through and paid by the County to provide assistance, and to serve as a liaison between the BCPRD and their respective local association.
Included in the Department's youth sports offerings are: football, cheerleading, soccer, wrestling, tee-ball, baseball, softball, basketball, and tennis. Additionally, various sport's camps may be offered throughout the year.
Currently, adult co-ed softball is offered in the fall. A variety of activities, with a primary emphasis on the County's senior population, including, a senior softball team, lunch trips and day trips to various points of interest are offered. Bingo is another activity that is offered and enjoyed by many local seniors.
Special events are also offered throughout the year, such as an Easter Egg Hunt, Youth Fishing Clinic, Breakfast with Santa, Elder-fest, disc golf tournaments, skateboarding competitions and mountain bike races.
With the move of BCPRD to the Old Nursing Home facility, additional programming opportunities present themselves and additional space has been secured throughout the county as we continue to broaden program offerings. Details can be found throughout our website.
Our history continues and we invite you to be a part of it and to” Experience the Benefits.”
