At no time will minor family members be allowed in or near dormitories, unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Second, Children 9 years of age and younger may play outside but must have access (visual sight or hearing distance) to adult supervision. Tot-playgrounds are unsupervised and children 4 years of age or younger may not be left alone without adult supervision.
Third, everyone who rides bicycles on an AF installation must wear a properly fastened and approved (e.g., Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), American National Standards Institute (ANSI) or Snell Memorial Foundation) bicycle helmet.  In addition to bicycles, all personnel must wear an approved helmet when roller skating, in-line skating, skateboarding, or operating foot-propelled scooters.  Skating, skateboarding, and scooters are prohibited on installation roadways except for street crossings and incidental road access caused by pedestrians. We recommend anyone enjoying these methods of recreation wear elbow and knee pads to prevent injuries.  All personnel will comply with all pedestrian related traffic laws.

General Youth Sports Information

Participation has many benefits for children. Being involved in sports creates opportunities for learning both physical and social skills. Children can also learn a number of moral skills including the values of treating their peers with respect and understanding differences. Life-long skills such as discipline, perseverance and teamwork are taught by the Youth Sports Director and volunteer coaches to help children develop a sense of self-worth, help them set personal goals and help them understand their abilities.

Training and certification of volunteer coaches by the National Youth Sports Coaches Association are provided and funded by the program. They receive the tools, resources and equipment necessary to offer a quality experience for young athletes.

The Youth Sports Director provides the best possible environment for children through an extensive screening process, a rigorous training agenda and hands-on support through continuous observation and evaluation of the program.

All team sports include all practices and games, team uniforms/T-shirts, equipment use, individual participation awards, NYSCA certified coaches, and an end of season sports banquet. Family field trips to professional and college sporting events are offered at a minimum cost.
