1. Where can I find a list of parks and their locations?
To see a complete list of all facilities used by the Mooresville Recreation Department, click on the "Recreation Map" link on the right side of the page.
2. How do I register my child for Recreation Department sports?
A parent may register their child(ren) online by clicking here and creating a profile to manage their online registrations. Online registrations require credit card payment. Or a parent may visit the Mooresville Recreation Department office, 418 Carpenter Avenue or any center. Cash, checks and credit card payments can be taken in our office.
Please Note: Registrations (online or in-office) will only be taken during specified enrollment periods. All participants who register during specified enrollment periods will be guaranteed a spot in the league. Late registrations will go to a waiting list and will be filled if teams lose players.
3. How are athletic teams selected?
For ages 5-8, a head coach is allowed their own son/daughter and the son/daughter of one or more assistant coach. Players have the option to return to their previous team from last season or go back into the draft. After coaches sons/daughters are assigned and returning players are assigned, the remaining team will be randomly selected by our computer program to even out each team.
For ages 9 and up, a head coach is allowed their own son/daughter and the son/daughter or one assistant coach. After those selections, a draft process will be used to select half of each coach's team (this number may vary from sport to sport). Coaches will draw numbers from a hat and draft in that order. Once half of each team has been selected by this process, the remaining team members will be assigned randomly by our computer program.
4. Can I request a specific coach or team for my child?
No. The draft process listed above gives coaches freedom to select more players than in the past. It is best to contact the coach and ask them to select your child as one of their picks. Please understand there is no guarantee that your child will land on a certian team.
5. Can I move my child up to the next age group early?
Yes, but there are some limits. A player is not allowed to skip an entire age group. Only players in their last year of a division may move up early to the next. (For example, a 10 year old may move up early to the 11-12 division.) If a player moves up early, he/she must do so when initially registered and not mid-season. Once a player decides to move up early, he or she is not allowed to move back down mid-season.
6. Can I move my child to a different team during the season?
As referenced above, you may not request a specific team or coach. Moving kids to different teams after they are selected has a ripple effect on the entire league and/or program.
7. I want to volunteer to coach. What do I need to do?
The Recreation Department relies solely on volunteer coaches for its athletic leagues. Interested individuals must complete a coaching application that will be reviewed by the Mooresville Police Department. Once approved, coaches are assigned to teams based on need in each age group.
