Statements
Mission Statement Spring Hill Recreation Commission is committed to providing quality recreational and leisure programs for the community in cooperation with the City of Spring Hill and Unified School District #230.
Background Statement The Spring Hill Recreation Commission was formed by resolution of the Spring Hill Unified School District 230 and the City of Spring Hill in June 1988. The commission was formed to provide recreational activities to all patrons in Spring Hill USD 230. The Recreation Commission Board is composed of five board members serving four-year terms – two appointed by the school district, two appointed by the city, and the fifth member is appointed by the other four board members. In addition to providing numerous recreational programs for all age groups, some of the Recreation Commission’s major projects since its formation have included: renovation of the City’s swimming pool, satisfaction of the mortgage on the athletic complex land, major upgrades and improvements on the athletic complex and other facilities, and construction of tennis courts on school district property.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement The Spring Hill Recreation Commission has experienced numerous successes over the last few years. The commission has continued to develop their positive image in the community which has had a direct effect on the participation received from such. In addition, the commission has taken great pride in their financial stability and accountability to the patrons of the community. The board and commission have developed many new partnerships in the area that will aid in the continued success of the SHRC. With the rapid growth being seen in our area, the commission has seen a different set of challenges come about in the last few years. We are beginning to see a strain on our current facilities with the increase in participation that is being experienced. The solution requires partnerships with the City and the school district in the development of new facilities and funding mechanisms for those facilities plus the renovation of existing facilities. The commission is governed by state statutes in the area of ownership of property and facilities which poses a challenge for funding these improvements. With the addition of new facilities and the renovation of existing ones, we feel that we will be able to compete for the recreational dollars that move towards the larger communities that provide newer, more modern facilities. These are all areas that we feel are vital to the continued success and development of the Spring Hill Recreation Commission.

Short-Term Success We want the athletes that participate in this program to develop in the areas of cooperation and teamwork, increase their current fitness levels, and to gain satisfaction in their ability to compete in the events.
Long-Term Success The SHRC wants to provide recreational opportunities for all of the Spring Hill community. We want this program to provide these opportunities to the intellectually disabled population in our community. Two of our long term athletes now have their own apartment and continue to grow as individuals.
Program Success Monitored By We monitor the progress of the Special Olympics program in three ways. We hold parents meetings during each season so that we may receive their feedback on the program. We collect participant surveys after each season, and we monitor the number of athletes that return from one sport season to the next.
Examples of Program Success Since the program's start in 2006, we have grown the roster of athletes to 12, and we have begun a partnership with the City of Gardner's program. This partnership is very beneficial to our athletes as it allows them the opportunity to participate in many more sports activities that would be limited by our small numbers.
Description Participants will learn the skills and fundamentals in this fun, recreational league for children ages 4 to 14. Players will be placed on teams by age and we rely on volunteer parents as coaches and assistant coaches for our teams.
Program Budget $39,500.00
Category Recreation & Sports, General/Other Baseball/Softball
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years), ,
Short-Term Success The participants will come away with new skills, a new sense of teamwork and respect for others, and a passion for the game.
Long-Term Success The youth baseball and softball program is designed to provide athletic opportunities for all children in the community.
Program Success Monitored By Progress of the program is monitored three ways. First, teams are compared with others in the league to determine the success of the Spring Hill athletes. Second, individual participants are surveyed to find out their opinions of the overall program, and third, participation numbers are compared to previous years to determine if the popularity of the program is increasing.
Examples of Program Success The baseball and softball program has been experiencing an average of a 5 percent increase in participation from year to year. From the growth experienced by the baseball and softball program, a recomendation has been made in our Parks and Recreation Master Plan to acquire and develop a regional type park of approximately 150 acres.
Description The SHRC Youth Soccer program stresses the development of individual skills with an emphasis on maximum participation of all players in a recreational atmosphere. All boys and girls in Pre-K (age 4) through 8th Grade are welcome to participate. We depend on volunteer parents to coach our teams, and players will be placed on teams according to their grade.
Program Budget $18,000.00

Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years), ,
Short-Term Success The participants will come away with new skills, a new sense of teamwork and respect for others, and a passion for the game. The outcomes participants receive are similar regardless of what sport is played. This reiterates the point that participation is the key and not what the activity is.
Long-Term Success We want this program to expose the youth of our community to soccer, which has one of the largest participation of any sport in the world.
Program Success Monitored By Progress of the program is monitored two ways. First, individual participants are surveyed to find out their opinions of the overall program, and second, participation numbers are compared to previous years to determine if the popularity of the program is increasing.
Examples of Program Success From the growth experienced by the soccer program, a recommendation has been made in our Parks and Recreation Master Plan to acquire and develop a regional type park of approximately 150 acres.

Organization Comments The Spring Hill Recreation Commission provides activities available to all patrons in the Spring Hill Unified School District #230. The SHRC receives most of their revenue for general operating expense and capital improvements as a taxing entity through the school district. Funding for programs offered by SHRC are generated through registration fees, program sponsors, grants and other donations. The staff members continually strive to improve the activities offered, with additional programs being added each year and they work hard to increase participation in all programs. The Recreation Commission has been able to able to maintain or increase cash balances, even though the cost of many of the activities have gone up.   In these tough economical times, we have strived to keep our fees as low as possible and also have been able to offer scholarships for those who qualify.  These scholarships have been made possible through donations and sponsors.
