Since the 1950’s Ken-Rock Softball Program has been led by community volunteers. Beginning in 1987, the Ken-Rock Community Center has honored past volunteers for their dedication to the softball program. From the Nokomo Heights Diamonds, to Cooper & Estwing Fields, the Diamonds off the Bypass, Elco Fields to the Don Schmid Youth Sports Center, located behind Riverdahl School the diamonds have donned the names of these unbelievable people who represented the Ken-Rock Center to the highest level in sport.
Ken-Rock Community Center has a rich tradition of organized team sports since the 1950’s. The programs have had success including fast pitch boys softball teams that gained National attention by winning ASA National Titles. All of these teams were led by volunteers The community center’s strength has been its committed volunteer base. Adult volunteers have mentored thousands of children over the years.
