Controversy between the recreation departments in Oconee County may have come to an end on Tuesday.
For the last month, Fair-Oak Youth Centers teams were excluded from the county schedule for all sports. On Tuesday, all five recreation directors in Oconee County met in a task force meeting to figure out the issues.
While no exact answer was given on why the group was excluded, the leaders said they want what’s best for the kids.
“Out here in this area we have rural kids play and all they want to do is play ball we actually had teams this year in basketball we had kids who had never been on a basketball court before and the score showed that but as long as they get a chance to play,” said Terry Swain, Fair-Oak Youth Center Director.
At the end of that task force meeting, the recreation directors held a vote and decided to move forward and go back to playing Fair-Oak in all sports as it’s what is best for all the kids across the county.
