The Union Township Recreation Committee is a group of local residents who coordinate and support various township recreation programs

Meeting Schedule: The Recreation Committee meets at 7:30 pm in the Union Township Municipal Building on the second Wednesday of each month. All residents are welcome to attend.

The following Youth Programs are available through the Township Recreation Department. Registration is open to all residents of Union Township regardless of what school their children attend. If you have a neighbor or friend who does not attend one of the public schools, remind them they are still eligible to register. We also accept other towns for several of our sport programs.

All youth programs are dependent on volunteers to help coordinate and support. Anyone interested in participating on the committee should contact Jens Duerr.

Service Projects
The Recreation Committee provides opportunities for children to complete various Service Project requirements.

Rutgers Certification
The Union Township Recreation Committee provides youth program volunteers with an opportunity to attend, free of charge, the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. certification clinic. This clinic, created by the Rutgers Youth Sports Research Council, helps coaches, parents, and administrators conduct safe, healthy, and enjoyable recreation programs for young athletes. In accordance with the stipulations of New Jersey’s Little League Law, the 3-hour long Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Clinic helps coaches minimize the risk of injury to young athletes, provides information about fundamental coaching concepts which enhances volunteer coaches’ effectiveness, and protects volunteer coaches from civil lawsuits. Certification is permanent and is applicable across all youth programs.
