Recreation Practitioner Manual


South East District created a series of modules focused on the roles and responsibilities of Community Recreation Practitioners. These leaders, especially in small communities, are often dropped into the deep end of the pool with the expectation that they know how to swim. These modules will be a welcome rescue device – a resource for new and experienced individuals.


There are seven (7) modules:
1. Intro to Recreation
2. Boards and Recreation
3. Leadership
4. Finance & Budgeting
5. Planning & Evaluation
6. Quality Programs & Events
7. Facility Management


Furthermore, these modules have been developed to make your job, as a Community Recreation Practitioner, easier and to give you a guide to the many priorities and tasks of your position. We have included background information, suggestions, checklists, and charts that you can use. The manual has been written so that you can easily find the resources that you need when you need them!
