Manteno Youth Soccer Association Fees
Peotone is part of the Manteno Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) for youth soccer leagues. Practices start around August 1. Peotone teams practice on the park grounds, and games are played in Manteno.
MYSA DOES NOT INCLUDE OR COLLECT ANY PEOTONE PARK DISTRICT FEES WITH THEIR REGISTRATION PROCESS.
Each participant who plays on a Peotone team will be assessed a $5.00 Park District fee which ensures the fields are available for MYSA practices. This fee is NOT included in the MYSA registration price. This fee can be paid at the Park Office by cash or check, or on-line under "Registration".
Additionally, participants on a Peotone team whose permanent residence is outside the Peotone Park District boundaries will be subject to an Annual Out-of-District Fee. This fee is NOT included in the MYSA registration price. This fee can be paid on-line through this website under "Registration" or in person to the Park Office.
In order to ensure all players are able to participate ALL fees must be paid before the start of practices.
Please contact the Peotone Park Office with any questions regarding these fees.

REC CARE REGISTRATION
Registration for the 2017-2018 school year is open. Please have registration forms into the Park Office as soon as possible before school starts. This will help us plan instructors for the school year. The registration packet for the 2017-2018 school year is available under the "Downloadable Forms" tab. For information on the Rec Care Program please contact Tracy at (708)205-4904 or email@example.com.
Rec Care is currently an after school program through the Peotone Park District that is located at Peotone Elementary and Peotone Intermediate Center. Rec Care runs from the end of the school day to 6pm, and also early release days. There is no Rec Care if school is not in session. Parents can choose either location for their children, even if they do not attend that school, and transportation will be provided between schools. There is a registration fee, but you are charged only for the days your child attends the program. It is a great solution for those "just in case" moments when parents have meetings or appointments that may run long, or a fun option for kids to spend more time with friends in a secure environment.
