Baseball, Blastball®, Softball & T-ball Youth Recreation Leagues
You can register your child at any of our community centers or at the Main office beginning February 6th through March 30th for our Youth Recreation Leagues. The baseball, softball, and t-ball league is open to youth ages 5 to 12. Your 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 team shirt & hat.
Once again, for the 3 to 4 year olds, we will be 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.
