Recreation Activities

Ocean City prides itself on having something to enhance everyone’s recreation and leisure time. Throughout the island, there are well-equipped parks and playgrounds, maintained for safety and fun on a year-round basis. There are baseball, softball, football, soccer, field hockey and multi-purpose fields. Numerous basketball, tennis, street hockey, shuffleboard, and volleyball courts complete the array of active recreation sites, many of them lighted for added hours of enjoyment. The City’s twelve-hole par-three golf course provides hours of enjoyment in a scenic meadow setting. Children can choose from a variety of fun and educational programs throughout the year. Adults can take part in the full array of programs at the Aquatic and Fitness Center, as well as compete in such activities as softball and volleyball.

Great Coaching/Parent Tips

Your kid’s success or lack of success in sports does not indicate what kind of parent you are… But having an athlete that is coachable, respectful, a great teammate, mentally tough, resilient, and who tries their best is a direct reflection of your parenting.

The best 6 words a parent can say after a game - "I love to watch you play"

Registration & Refund Policy
Registration Policy

All activities are handled on a first come, first serve basis for residents and seasonal vacationers. The Ocean City Community Services Department and the Division of Recreation Programs reserves the right to cancel or make changes to any program due to lack of registration, inclement weather or reasons beyond the department’s control. Programs, dates and times are subject to change due to availability of facilities.  Registration will only be accepted from a parent or legal guardian over the age of 18.

Program cancellation due to inclement weather will be announced on Channel 2 or call (609) 525-9304. Please make all checks for programs or special events payable to: “City of Ocean City.”  Registration for activities will be taken online through the online registration platform.

Program announcements will be distributed through schools and published in local newspapers. Any program requiring a deadline for registration will be noted on the program information flyer. A waiting list will be maintained for some programs. If an opening becomes available in a closed program, that space will be offered to the first person on the waiting list. If that person declines or is unreachable the next person on the list will be contacted. The Division of Recreation insists that a child should never be left at an activity or program before the person in charge arrives to accept responsibility for that participant. It is the obligation of the parent or guardian to be aware of program schedule and times.

Refund Policy

The City of Ocean City has set the following guidelines for registration fees for our Recreation and Aquatic & Fitness Center programs:

  • In order to request a refund, a written email should be sent to LSopko@ocnj.us with a detailed explanation for the request. After the request has been made, the city will review and make a decision on its status.
  • Refunds will only be made for canceled programs or medical reasons. Please provide a doctors note at the time of request.
  • Refunds will not be made for scheduling conflicts or dissatisfaction with program/team, etc.

The dollar amount will be prorated dependent on how much of the program/season has passed. Credit card payments will be returned to the card within 5-7 business days. Cash and check payments will be returned by check, which may take 2-3 weeks for processing.

The City of Ocean City reserves the right to waive this refund policy at its discretion at any time.
