Youth Recreation Leagues

Baseball, Blastball®, Softball and T-ball

BlastballYou can register your child online at recpro.cityofclarksville.com, at any of our community centers or at the Main office now through March 22nd for our Youth Recreation Leagues. The baseball, softball, and t-ball league is open to youth ages 5 to 14. Your child’s birth certificate is required at registration.

Once again, Blastball® will be offered for the 3 and 4 year olds. This fun alternative to traditional t-ball uses a “honking” base to entertain younger players- adding excitement to the game. It concentrates on developing a child’s running, hitting, catching, fielding, and throwing skills.

The cost to play in any of the Youth Recreation Leagues is $40.00 per child and includes a team shirt, hat, and medal. Games will be played at the Heritage Park Complex located at 1241 Peachers Mill Road beginning June 3rd.

Each team will practice once a week until the season begins, at which time, teams will have one practice a week and one game a week. Games will be held at the Heritage Park Baseball fields.

These leagues rely on the generosity of the parents and volunteers to provide coaching support. There is no experience required. Please show your support by volunteering to coach. Please call 931.645.7476 to volunteer.
