Blastball Meeting Scheduled
New this year for the 3 to 4 year olds, we are offering “Blastball”. 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. To learn more about “Blastball”, Parks & Recreation will be conducting a meeting March 1st for parents and coaches. The meeting will begin at 6:00pm at the Burt Cobb Community Center, located at 1011 Franklin Street.
Archery is back!
Kleeman Community Center will begin offering two archery classes for youth grades 4-12. A beginner class will be held from 4:00pm to 5:00pm and an advanced class will be held from 5:00pm to 6:00pm on Monday nights.
The four-week session will begin March 7th. Cost is $10.00 per student.
Join us at the Clarksville Greenway, located at the end of Pollard Road, from 8:00am to 9:00am Saturday, March 19th, for a guided nature hike. L. Dwayne Estes, an Austin Peay State University professor, will lead the way identifying plants and trees along the trail.
