Each year the Dover Police Charities spends approximately $4,000 to assist youth sports leagues and initiatives. Police employees sometimes coach the team that the Dover Police Charities is sponsoring in the name of the Police Department. This provides an even greater connection between the police department and the youth or families involved.
We also work with sports programs to help them bring a message to the players about how important it is to be the best athlete you possibly can and to not let tobacco, alcohol or other drugs interfere with that. For example the Dover Coalition for Youth, supported in part by the Dover Police assists the Recreation Department with Coaches' Training to help teach communications techniques for coaches speaking to their players about drug use and their athletic ability.
During 2012-2015, we sponsored:
|Dover Babe Ruth Baseball|
|Two Dover Recreation Youth Basketball Teams|
|Dover Youth Softball|
|Dover Middle School Baseball|
|NH Soap Box Derby|
|Dover Little Green Football|
|DHS/St. Thomas Aquinas Girls Hockey|
|NH Special Olympics|
|NH Spartans A.A.U. Softball|
|Dover High School Unified Volleyball|
|Dover High Music Club|
|Dover Little Green Cheerleaders|
