The City of Clarksville’s Parks & Recreation Department has teamed up with various partners, including Austin Peay State University Recreation, Legends Bank, Montgomery County Parks, churches, areas schools and coaches, to present Clarksville Sports Festival.
This two-day celebration of sports and athletics will be from 1:00pm to 9:00pm Friday, March 25th and Saturday, March 26th from 9:00am to 4:00pm at various locations on APSU’s campus. Festival-goers can visit vendors, watch demonstrations, and even participate in classes and clinics, all at no cost.
Baseball, Softball & T-ball Youth Recreation Leagues
You can register your child at any of our three community centers or at the Parks and Recreation office now through April 5th for our Youth Baseball Recreation Leagues. The league is open to 5 to 12 year olds, and the participating child’s birth certificate is required at registration. All games are played at Heritage Park Baseball Fields. The cost to play in any of the youth recreation leagues is $35.00 per child and includes a shirt, hat and team picture.
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.
Calling all parents and children! Join us every Tuesday morning from 8:00am to 9:00am at the Clarksville Greenway for “stroller time”. This brand new free program allows for interactions while exercising in a beautiful environment. Stroller time will meet at the Pollard Road trail head, located at 1101 Pollard Road, for five weeks beginning April 19th. Hop on over to the Heritage Park Baseball Fields for the 2011 Spring Eggstravaganza!
