Park and Rec reviews unique summer

A late start impacted numbers, but Windom Park and Rec Director Tim Hogan still considers the summer of 2020 to be a success.

Hogan noted that participation numbers for summer youth baseball were lower, due largely to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic. Registration did not begin until programs were given clearance from the state to participate in pods of 10. When the state allowed programs to move to pods of 25, Hogan said the youth baseball program returned to a more normal routine.

Summer traveling baseball through the city was cancelled for the summer, as neighboring cities opted to not offer programs.

Likewise, the pool season got off to a later start than usual and registration for swimming lessons was delayed until the city received state clearance. However, Hogan said that attendance at the pool was steady much of the summer. He added that colleges offering distance learning and the decision to move football and volleyball to the spring allowed the pool to remain open later than usual. The pool remained open until Labor Day weekend - almost two weeks later than a typical summer.

More information recapping the summer season for the Park and Rec program and the pool appears in the Sept. 16 print edition of the Citizen.
