Attached is the flyer we will be reviewing.(click here)
The Burlingame Parks and Recreation Department strives to offer a wide variety of quality afterschool sports to as many kids as possible in the Burlingame community. We accomplish this through the hard work of parents, teachers, coaches, administrators, and the recreation staff. We do not make any cuts in our program and encourage all kids to participate.
Participants can register for all sports through the Burlingame Recreation Department through our website, over the phone or in person at the Recreation Center. We begin registration for all fall and winter Sports in August when our Fall Brochure is mailed home to every resident in the 94010 area code. We will begin spring registration in early December when our winter brochure is distributed.
When we plan sports for the upcoming school year we estimate the number of kids we can accommodate at each school for each sport. We will look at the previous year’s enrollment, then the incoming class numbers and then set a registration max for that sport. Once we get to that max number we begin taking a waiting list. We will add students from the waiting list if the league and sport can handle the additional registrations. In the middle school and elementary school program about 3% of the people are never removed from the waiting list due to not enough kids to form another team.
Good sportsmanship is a very important part of the after school sports program. Players are expected to act with dignity and respect towards teammates, opponents & facilities. Parents are there to be supportive of players & coaches. Any unsportsmanlike conduct by players or parents may because to ban them from future events.
The Burlingame Parks and Recreation Department offers scholarship opportunities to participants who can’t afford to pay the registration fee. We usually are able to offer a 50% or 25% discount on the program. In certain cases the PTA of a school will step forward and pay the registration fee for the participant.
