The scramble continues.

After canceling and changing programs for the spring and summer because of the coronavirus pandemic, recreation department directors continue to keep one eye on the pandemic while staging programs for the fall.

“We want to make sure we do it correctly and safely,” said Medfield’s Recreation Department director, Kevin Ryder.

For the fall, Ryder said he and his staff are offering programs suitable for those working from home, as well as students in remote learning.

“We’re trying to navigate through all this,” he said.

Most of Medfield’s programs will be offered outdoors, with the Pfaff Center available in case of rain.

This includes morning yoga at Hinkley Swim Pond and a fitness boot camp, both led by local fitness instructors, as well as Puddlestompers nature exploration classes for toddlers, soccer leagues, after-school and music classes.

In all cases, face masks and social distancing will be required.

Dover

Dover Recreation is giving residents the opportunity to take a hike.

Partnering with the town’s Open Space Committee, the department is offering a series of “independent fun hikes,” as well as private group hikes, around town.

In addition, there will be programs for soccer, tennis and art.

Sherborn

Sherborn Recreation is offering a combination of in-person and Zoom classes.

In-person classes include tennis at the courts behind the fire station; the courts recently received an upgrade to its lighting for improved play at night.

The courts are also the site for pickleball.

Sherborn Recreation will also offer T-Ball for ages 4-6 at Jameson Fields.

Zoom classes include yoga and cardio/core fitness.

Farm Pond’s beach has closed for the season; residents are advised that it’s swim at your own risk because there are no lifeguards.

The Sherborn Yacht Club is offering sail classes this month; for information on this and other programs, as well as how to donate, visit https://www.sherbornyachtclub.org/
