The Crookston Parks and Rec released its Summer Fun Finder today (Monday, April 1), which features all of the summer programs that will be offered.

The summer programs will begin the week of June 10 and will last approximately nine weeks through the week of August 5. Some notable programs that will be offered include- Swimming lessons, Club Kid, Youth Baseball (ages 3-15), Skills and Drills, Tennis, and Golf.

There are many opportunities for kids to participate in activities this summer. However, adults will have chances to have some fun, too. “We have a lot of activities that will be offered for our youth programming,” said Crookston Parks and Rec Director Jake Solberg, “Along with adult softball, there’s also an adult pickleball league and sand volleyball. So we have a variety of different athletics and sports.”

Youth Football in Crookston will join the Greater Grand Forks Youth Football League for its third year this year, and girls and boys can participate. Flag football is available for grades k-6, and tackle football is available for grades 3-6. “Rookie tackle is third and fourth grade combined,” said Solberg, “Tackle football is fifth and sixth grade combined. There’s an early registration, and all that information is in the fun finder.”

For baseball and softball (for all ages), the cost will be $100, T-Ball will be $65, Club Kid $225, and Swimming Lessons are $70. Solberg believes that the Crookston Parks and Rec programs are relatively cost-effective compared to other Parks and Rec programs around the state. “Our programs are pretty inexpensive, I believe,” said Solberg, “We want our youth and adults to be involved. We raised some costs and decreased some others.”

Solberg also commented that these programs are crucial for kids to be involved in and that the Parks and Rec department takes pride in providing activities for the whole community. “For a small community, we have a lot of offers in a variety of different ways,” said Solberg, “If you’re looking for your kids to be involved in activities, we run great programs, and we do. We strive to succeed and allow kids to have things to do in our community. We’re here to provide a quality of life for our community, and we take a lot of pride and passion in that.”

The Crookston Parks and Rec is also actively looking for summer help regarding baseball coaches/umpires, softball coaches/umpires, Club Kid leaders, lifeguard instructors, and Park Maintenance workers. Parks and Rec offers $15 per hour for part-time workers in these positions. If interested, call City Hall at 218-281-1242.
