Municipal Training WEBINAR

Tuesday, June 9, 2020

Opening Municipal Park & Recreation Summer Programs & Facilities and Planning for the Return to Play


1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.


The COVID-19 pandemic has required towns and cities to change the way summer recreation programs will operate and has limited or prevented the running of camps, use of athletic fields and facilities and opportunities for youth and adult athletic leagues.  Recent guidance by Governor Lamont and various state agencies will help municipalities plan to reopen.  

Join our upcoming webinar, Opening Municipal Park and Recreation Summer Programs and Facilities and Planning for the Return to Play, as we discuss the latest guidance, best practices, new protocols and risk management for municipalities to consider. Presenters from the Connecticut Recreation and Park Association, Inc., CCM and CIRMA will cover the following areas:

  • Guidelines for reopening athletic facilities and fields 
  • Guidelines for allowing organized athletic activities
  • Best practices for opening and staffing beaches, pools, and aquatic facilities 
  • Navigating OEC’s requirements for the operation of camps
  • Best practices for operating summer recreation programs
  • Recommended risk management policies that towns and cities should follow
  • And more

Please submit your questions regarding this topic in the registration form. We will organize your submissions and address your questions and concerns during the webinar.
