Sports and Recreation Programs
Traditionally open to all towns
Due to State COVID guidelines, please refer to each program provider's parameters for registration and restrictions
For the safety and well-being of all of our children, parents, community volunteers and educators, CORSE Programs will follow the policy guidelines for programming decisions of Scituate Public Schools and Scituate Recreation who are our main partners in program collaboration.
For all CORSE-sponsored recreation programs
This season, for the safety or your child and due to COVID-19 minimum requirements for health guidelines for our recreational programs and staffing configurations, we will need to set special parameters for participants: the child participant must be independently ambulatory and mobile, have basic daily living skills for feeding, toileting and changing of clothes, and have the abilities to understand and follow directions, be able to request assistance and have basic verbal skills to communicate with staff and peers. Masks will be required at all camps so all children will be expected to wear them for the duration of the session. We will return to our original parameters below once COVID restrictions are lifted.
For 2020-21, these programs have been generously supported by grant funding received from the Douglas Education Fund, Grace E. Brooks Trust, Evan Henry Foundation, Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation, Edwin Phillips Foundation, Rockland Trust Charitable Foundation as well as our community fundraising supporters.
Financial assistance is available for all programs, please contact for more information and guidelines.
Programs fill quickly so please follow the detailed registration processes for each program below.
We welcome out-of-town registrations based on providers’ guidelines. All recreation programs follow the policies and procedures of that provider. You must register with that program provider to participate.

All Stars provides recreation programs for ALL children, those with and without special needs who would prefer a less competitive atmosphere. Our programs are highly motivating within a structured setting to build skills in a particular physical and social activity while having fun! This more relaxed setting, along with a low student to staff ratio (3 to 1), offers the perfect opportunity for children with moderate special needs to participate in community programs alongside their friends and peers. For all CORSE-sponsored programs through Scituate Recreation: Each program has a 3:1 (student to staff) ratio, unless otherwise designated. This 3:1 student to staff ratio allows for most children with and without special needs to successfully access our classes independently if the student can understand directions, be able to request assistance and have basic verbal skills to communicate with peers. If your child needs access to medications, please be aware that there is no nurse on-site. Parents are responsible for assuring the appropriate information is provided to the instructors. Instructors cannot dispense medication or perform testing. All staff, excluding volunteers, are certified in CPR. If there is an emergency, 911 will be called. If a parent/guardian believes that a program is not accessible to their child without reasonable accommodations and wants more information, please contact the Scituate Recreation Department. If you register your child within 10 days of the program start date, your child's start date may be delayed one week to ensure proper staffing and appropriate reasonable accommodations.
No refunds issued 2 weeks prior to start of programs due to staffing requirements.
