Safety is our Priority

The health, safety, and well-being of our community is the top priority of the Village of Hawthorn Woods. All facilities, programs, and events held by the Village of Hawthorn Woods will follow guidelines issued by local, state, and federal authorities. Guidelines may be updated at any time to ensure the safety of program/event participants and staff. Any participant who does not follow guidelines set by the Village of Hawthorn Woods will be removed from the facility/program/event and all fees will be forfeited; no refund will be issued. 

Guidelines apply to spectators of a participant. If a spectator of a participant does not comply with the guidelines, the spectator will be removed.
