Each season the Hilton Head Island Recreation Association honors the volunteer coaches who promote and exemplify good sportsmanship in our youth athletic programs. At the June Board meeting, the Island Recreation Association recognized Laura Christie, Chris Gregory, AJ Torre and Travis Stephenson. These people received the Association’s Outstanding Volunteer Coaches award for their tireless hours of dedication and being such a positive role model for the children of our community.
The Recreation Association acknowledges the value of volunteers and truly understands this community would not have such wonderful park facilities and first class recreation programs without dedicated volunteers. These coaches are just some of the hundreds of volunteers the Association works with throughout the year.
As a non-profit organization, The Island Recreation Association relies on volunteers to make our programs successful. We would not be successful with our the unbelievable support we receive from our community.
