Buxton Recreation Department's Youth Sports Philosophy
The Buxton Recreation Department strives to offer high quality youth sports programming for its community. Our youth sports programs are designed to provide recreational opportunities that will encourage good sportsmanship, age-appropriate fundamentals, knowledge of the game, teamwork, as well as personal health and well-being. Coaches, parents, and fans will work together to help children develop a love and passion for the sport by creating a fun and enthusiastic environment for the all participants in our programs.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR COACHES AT ALL LEVELS!
Coaches are essential to our programs success! No experience? No problem? We will help you! Coaches receive a free program credit towards one child's registration in the soccer program.
