News

It is with a deep sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of all youth programs for the spring 2020 season. This includes, soccer, and the following programs that had already started, indoor field hockey, tumbling and cheernastics. We have begun the process of refunding fees. Soccer will receive a full refund and the programs that had already begun will receive a prorated refund for the portions of the programs that had not yet occurred. Please be patient with us in getting out the refunds as the city will be issuing over 250 individual checks. You can also donate your registration fee if you wish by contacting our office at 302-398-7975. Registration for the fall 2020 soccer programs will begin on July 1, 2020.

We are truly disappointed in this announcement but with the Governor extending the declaration, we had no other choice. We hope to see you all soon!

Should you have any questions, please call us at 302-398-7975.

Stay safe and well,
Bill and Doug


HPR IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

March 14, 2020

Sadly I must report that we have been instructed by the City of Harrington to cancel all programs until further notice. This means practice, youth programs, opening weekend of the soccer season, and the use of our facility for any purpose. Employees will be working normal hours during this time. Should you need anything, please call or email. DO NOT COME TO THE CENTER FOR ANY REASON WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL FROM STAFF. Since the Harrington Senior Center had to close as well, we are available to help any of our local senior citizens who do not feel comfortable going out in public with errands such as the grocery store or pharmacy. Please contact our office to make arrangements.

We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to seeing you all soon!
