Baseball & Soccer

In the summer months we offer children starting from JK through to grade 12 an exciting two month Baseball league.  Starting in the month of May and running through until the end of June, children are taught the fundamentals of baseball and how to be a team player.  This program is offered to both boys and girls with some opportunity to have a co-ed team if desired.  Children are divided into teams based on age, not skill level.  Games and practices are scheduled for early evening 1-2 days a week.

We also offer a Soccer league that runs from late June through the end of July.  This program is available to children under the age of 14.  Again, teams are made based on age, not skill level, and games and practices happen in the early evening 1-2 days a week.

Volunteers!

The Recreation programs that we provide are dependent on volunteers.  Our voluntary staff works hard to make these programs available to the community.  They are always open to new ideas for programs and could always use a helping hand.  We are always looking for coaches, referees, umpires and instructors for current and new programs.  If you have a desire to get involved with the Recreation Department, please contact the Municipal office.

St. Joseph Island Triathlon

The annual St. Joseph Island Triathlon is always set to take place in August.  Events include: Olympic Triathlon, International Duathlon, Sprint Triathlon and Duathlon, Try-a-Triathlon, and the Kids of Steel.

Island Springs Golf Course

Just a short distance outside Richards Landing is the Island Springs Golf Resort, a championship 9-hole course.  Island Springs offers challenging play amid rolling hills and breathtaking scenery.  After a round of golf, enjoy a cool beverage on the veranda or a full course meal in the dining room.  The course offers rental clubs, golf carts, and a pro shop.
