Parks and Recreation director, Jason Schaitz, shares tips for staying organized in recreation programs.
With so many moving parts within your leagues, it is a task itself just to stay organized. You have to constantly engage with your participants and parents, supervise staff and volunteers, manage schedules, coordinate game days, keep track of equipment, worry about maintenance and your facilities, and much more.
Make staying organized in recreation programs a priority by doing the following:
Be forward thinking. Once games have started, let your staff take over so you can start getting ready for whatever is next and make sure you are always one step ahead.
Set aside office hours to keep up with paperwork and administrative duties. If these things are pushed aside they will pile up.
Keeping yourself and your recreation programs organized will show to your stakeholders. This will give you the free time you never thought you had, and allow you to enjoy your program even more than you already do.
