Mike's commitment as a recreation director/volunteer for past 30 years has always been selfless. He mentors our non-church based Ascension of Our Lord Recreation Department. His program provides a community sponsored Spring Baseball, Softball and t-ball as well as a Fall Soccer sports program for the boys and girls of the St. John the Baptist Parish here in LaPlace. Mike has created a sports environment which brings enthusiasm to 400 youth and 300 families.
As a volunteer he handles registration, prepares the roster and game schedule as well as maintains (cuts, paints and marks & grade) the fields, orders the equipment, uniforms and trophies and schedules the photographer for team pictures.
As a director he encourages community involvement with volunteer coaches and provides fun and good sportsmanship with the partnership of caring parents.
These programs initiate extracurricular activities throughout the year and helps develop exercise, leadership skills, and encourages our children to grow in all their endeavors.
Recreation schedules and rules can be found in "Forms" under the Information link.
