Registration is underway for our first-ever Youth Dodgeball League
Registration is going on now thru December 21st! Participants can register at the Clarksville Parks and Recreation Main office as well as online at recpro.cityofclarksville.com.
This six-week Youth Dodgeball League is open to ages 6 to 17 years and is free to participate. Games will be played at the Crow Community Center on Friday evenings beginning January 11th, with a pre-league meeting held January 4th for all players to go over rules and teams.
Dodgeball is a great way to keep children active while having fun. Dodgeball promotes teamwork and develops arm strength, speed, flexibility and hand-eye coordination. Balls are made of soft fabric to prevent injury.
