Greetings Hyland Hills Residents and Friends!
Volunteer Coaches Honored
Hyland Hills is fortunate that throughout the year, dozens of volunteers step up to coach teams of youngsters of varying ages, gender and in multiple sports disciplines. Demands on coach volunteers include many hours of time away from home and family to work on the individual development of each young athlete and to build on team cohesiveness and success at the same time. Five such volunteer coaches were honored on October 2nd for having reached the distinction of five years of coaching service. Each coach was recognized at the event, and all coaches and their families were given a private BBQ and evening of fun at Adventure Golf & Raceway where they had full access to the miniature golf courses, go-kart raceway and bumper cars.
District Debuts Chuck Hancock Excellence
in Coaching Award
The Hyland Hills Board of Directors had envisioned an annual award for one outstanding coach who exhibited all of the attributes of excellence in coaching. One coach who has been a coach and mentor for more than three decades at Hyland Hills was the coach that the Board identified for this inaugural award. However, Chuck Hancock’s 30+ years of volunteer coaching in numerous Hyland Hills athletics programs is so substantial that in addition to presenting him with the annual award, the Board actually named the award after him. Congratulations Chuck Hancock!
Stem Launch Bell Roth Clean Up
On October 7th, Bell Roth Park played host to 8th grade student visitors from the neighboring STEM Launch School working on a project to study how human pollutants impact wildlife. Countless birds and other wildlife are injured or killed in Colorado every year because of thoughtless people who litter. Discarded plastic six-pack holders, fishing hooks, and fishing line are all potentially lethal to wildlife. The students investigate real-life problems in various units of study and then document their findings to come up with solutions to the problems.

John Dunn, Hyland Hills Manager of Parks gave a short presentation to the students explaining the District’s respect for wildlife and what his crew does to maintain parks, the type of irrigation used, mowing and the importance of trash pick-up that is involved in overall park maintenance.
Come Celebrate with Chipper on October 20th!
