Friends of North County Recreation District, true to its mission, is supporting NCRD scholarships, programs and projects with its Spring distribution of funds. With a focus toward benefiting all in the North County Community, as well as visitors and tourists, Friends is funding an upgrade for the Performing Arts Center’s sound system, lighting and security at Rex Champ Field, and equipment for the new Youth Sports Program. Equipment needs are for the volleyball and basketball programs currently being offered; more sports activities are being planned.

Exciting new classes in the Fitness Center are also supported with Friends’ funding of one spinner bike for Spinning Classes and for instructor certification. The A/V equipment provided for Adult Activities last fall is enhanced by Friends’ funding for a camera and microphone upgrade. A computer, printer, and wifi access for community use will be available in the mezzanine above the Welcome Center Lobby, thanks to Friends’ support.

At the heart of Friends’ funding are scholarships to offset fees for Youth, Aquatics and Fitness Department programs. Children and families are always top priority. Generous donations from Friends’ members and the community, along with fundraising proceeds, have made it possible for Friends to spring forward with widely branching support for our flourishing recreation district.

Join us in our effort to promote and support North County Recreation District by becoming a member of Friends of NCRD. If you’d like to make a donation toward one or more spinner bikes for the new Spinning Classes, your contribution will help acquire enough bikes to get the program off to a good start.
