CHARACTER COUNTS!
AT
KENT COUNTY PARKS & RECREATION!

The six pillars of character are instrumental in the success of all programs offered by Kent County Parks and Recreation.  All program participants are encouraged to promote the six pillars of character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.  Failure of any participant to follow the examples set forth in each pillar may result in expulsion from Kent County Parks and Recreation programs.

PUBLIC SCHOOL SITES

Currently, several of our recreational youth and adult sports are offered in surrounding public school facilities.  Working closely with the Board of Education, the Department of Parks and Recreation has several generous facility contracts with Kent County High School, Kent County Middle School, Galena Elementary, H.H. Garnett and Rock Hall Elemenatry Schools.  These facilities are utilized by the Department of Parks and Recreation primarily on weekday evenings.

CONCUSSION AWARENESS POLICY

Effective July 1, 2011, the Maryland General Assembly passed legislation (HB858/SB771) requiring concussion awareness and management for organized youth sports programs at public school sites and local parks. This bill requires that concussion awareness information be provided to coaches, school personnel, students, and parents/guardians, in collaboration with the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, local boards of education, and other experts and stakeholders.
