Mission

The Paramus Recreation Commission’s mission is to create opportunities for growth and improvement of citizens by offering an array of recreation programs that are diverse in their scope and address the physical, social and mental needs of the community.

Objectives

  • To ensure that recreation opportunities are available to all residents, regardless of skill or ability
  • To create, advertise and manage seasonal programs such as sports, summer playground and educational classes 
  • To organize special events for the community that create a sense of pride in one’s community
  • To recruit and oversee the best possible volunteer coaches for each sport
  • To coordinate field and gym usage with various teams and organizations from the community, including the Board of Education, for the benefit of residents
  • To work with the Shade Tree Department to ensure that fields are maintained in accordance with program schedules and that parks and playgrounds are routinely maintained to ensure the safety of residents

Refund Policy

The Recreation Commission’s refund policy has changed. Credits and refunds will no longer be issued for any withdrawal or cancellation. Exceptions will not be made. Please note that as of January 1, 2017, credit card convenience fees for all borough departments will be set at 2.75% of the transaction amount, rather than a flat rate.

Volunteer Coaches Needed

Many of the youth activities offered in our brochure rely on volunteer coaches. Anyone wishing to coach any youth activity must complete both an Intent to Coach Form and an Ethics Form. All volunteer coaches must take part in and pass the Rutgers' S.A.F.ET.Y. Clinic. All candidates will be subject to a background check.
