Our League Presidents and Coaches
Florence Township has a long tradition of excellence in sports. Beginning at our recreation level and continuing thru the Florence Memorial High School programs there are several athletic activities available for youths to participate. Many students have even continued to excel at both the college and professional levels. The foundation of these achievements begins at the recreation level. The recreation sports program serves as an introduction to sports for the children of the community. The basic fundamentals and sportsmanship are taught thru the dedication of our volunteers. Each coach that participates in our recreation program completes an extensive background check and fingerprinting process. Once approved EVERY coach is issued an Identification Badge which must be worn while participating within the program(s). Concussion & Head Injury Certification is also required for all coaches. The completing of these requirements is overseen by our recreation department and League Presidents.
The League Presidents, Vice Presidents, Treasurers and Secretaries serve as a governing body for each program and coordinate their efforts thru the recreation department. Without the devotion of these individuals, it would be very difficult to provide quality sports programs. We encourage families to consider registering their children to participate in recreation sports. We feel that during the recreation years, many valuable lessons are learned. Physical activity thru sports is a healthy form of development and learning about teamwork and sportsmanship is vital when extended from the sports fields to the classroom to being a responsible youth in the community. As residents of Florence Township, we urge you to visit our recreation sports links, attend meetings, ask questions and most importantly sit along the sidelines and cheer on your children and their friends.
Visiting Our Parks
In addition to the many active recreational activities, the Township of Florence has many parks and scenic areas where you can enjoy a walk, a picnic or even reserve an area for a private special occasion.
