Coronavirus (COVID-19) 3-19-2020

Ellis Rec Participants,

After our board meeting last night March 18, 2020, the Ellis Rec has decided to cease all in person activities until May 1st  This decision comes based on the most recent Executive order from the Governor of Kansas Laura Kelly and the recommendations from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in order to minimize the threat of Coronavirus (COVID-19) to our community. 

The following Ellis Rec programs, activities and special events will be postponed effective March 17 – May 1, 2020. Refunds or credits will be issued for programs that cannot be rescheduled.  We hope that you understand this was a difficult decision and further action may be needed in the future.     

Specific programs effected include at this time:

Ellis Rec Spring Soccer (Postponed to a later date)

Hays Rec Spring Soccer program (Canceled)  

April 1st  

Tiny Tots Open Gym (Postponed to a later date)

Participants who paid the registration fee for a canceled program will receive a full credit applied to their Ellis Rec registration account.  If a participant would like a refund check instead of a credit, they may request one by calling the Rec office at 785-726-3718.  Activities that have been postponed that a registration fee has been collected may request a credit or refund at any time.  

The Ellis Recreation staff is still available Monday through Friday, taking phone calls and answering e-mails.  Online registration is open at and we are currently taking registration for summer Baseball, Softball, Golf, Theater Camp, sports camps and more.
