Manteno Youth Soccer Association Registration

MYSA 2018 season registration is currently closed.  Visit mantenosoccer.com for more information.

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 2018-19 school year is open.  Click HERE for 2018-2019 school year registration form. 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 2018-19 school year is available under the "Downloadable Forms" tab.  For information on the Rec Care Program please contact Tracy at (708)205-4904 or reccare@peotoneparkdistrict.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. 


PLEASE BE AWARE:

There are many park improvements planned for the coming months.  Please be aware of your surroundings and use caution when visiting the parks. 

Unauthorized motorized vehicles (cars/ trucks, golf carts, atv's) are NOT allowed on Park grounds or paths.  This is to ensure the safety of all who visit our Parks and to avoid damage to the Park grounds or facilities.  If you have a special need to access a Park facility (helping the elderly or handicapped) please contact the Park Office.  Park motorized vehicles in designated areas.  


Board of Commissioners Vacant Seat

The Peotone Park District Board of Commissioners currently has one vacant seat.  Commissioner must be a registered voter and reside within the Peotone Park District.  Please contact the Park Office with questions regarding this vacant seat.  As always the public is welcome to attend all Park Board Meetings.  Our next regular meeting will start at 7pm on Tuesday June 26, 2018 at the Main Building, 8 Blue Devil Drive, Peotone, IL.


2018 Out-of-District Fees

On January 2, 2018 we will start accepting family and individual Out-of-District Fees for 2017.  If you plan to participate in any activity taking place on the Peotone Park District grounds and your permanent residence is out of the Park boundaries (Village of Peotone), you will be assessed an Out-of-District fee.  This is separate than program registration fees and must be paid before participation in Park programs or other programs taking place on park grounds (youth baseball/softball, MYSA soccer, etc.)

The fee structure is $25.00 for an individual or $50.00 for a family (more than 1 person).  This fee covers the calendar year.  This fee can be paid in a variety of ways:

- in the Park Office during regular office hours

- mailed to the Park Office

- at various registration events throughout the year

- on-line (Debit/credit only, processing fee is included in final price)

Please see "PARK DISTRICT BOUNDARIES" in the Headlines section for a map of the Peotone Park District boundary.

If you have any questions regarding this fee please contact the Park Office at (708) 258-3343.
