Our objective is to serve the girls, boys, men and women of Old Tappan, providing the types of recreational activities that will improve the lifestyle of everyone.  This is not a task borne only by the Recreation Commission members but also by a wealth of volunteer effort from town residents.  This spirit of volunteerism from parents and others is essential in order for our programs to continue successfully. Parents are encouraged to participate in a variety of ways on the ball field and off during the course of each of the sports seasons.
