Time to start preparing for Adult and Youth Sports Leagues

It’s hard to imagine with the cold weather we’ve experienced lately that spring is right around the corner, but it really is time to begin thinking about softball season and other great outdoor activities offered by the Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department.

An annual meeting for the 2010 Adult Softball Season will be held at Burt-Cobb Community Center on February 7 at 2 p.m. All leagues will have one large informational meeting instead of having several individual meetings as in years past. The following leagues will be offered this spring:

  • Sunday Men’s League
  • Monday Men’s Church League
  • Tuesday True Co-Ed League
  • Tuesday Church Youth League
  • Wednesday Men’s League
  • Thursday Women’s League
  • Friday Church Co-Ed League

This meeting will provide coaches the opportunity to vote on sanctioning organizations, any desired post-season tournament, uniforms, and rules specific to the league.

Parks and Recreation will also begin accepting team deposits of $100 on February 8. This will insure that your team is in the league and will be applied towards final fees. Deposits are due in the Parks and Recreation office no later than 4 pm on February 22. There will be no late registrations.

The spring softball season will last 8 weeks and begins March 28 at Heritage Park .

It’s also time to start preparing for the Youth Recreation Baseball, Softball, and Teeball League at Heritage Park this summer. An information meeting for parents and potential coaches will be held at Kleeman Community Center on February 9 at 6 p.m. This year we are opening up the league to 3 and 4 year olds so this will be a great opportunity for parents of new players to ask questions and returning players to learn more about the new age divisions.

Registration for the youth league begins February 8 and the cost is $35 per child. This includes a shirt, hat and team picture.

For more information about spring and summer sports leagues, please call 645-7476 and speak with Tina Boysha.

Burt-Cobb Center reopens this week with new programs

The staff at Burt-Cobb Community Center is looking forward to the reopening the center this week and starting new programs for youth and adults. Don’t forget the After School Archery Program begins Thursday at 4 pm. and Ballroom Dancing begins on January 26.
