Youth Recreation Leagues Registration

Registration Deadline for Baseball, Blastball®, Softball & T-ball Youth Recreation Leagues is Quickly Approaching

BlastballYou can register your child online at recpro.cityofclarksville.com, at any of our community centers or at the Main office now through March 22nd for our Youth Recreation Leagues. The baseball, softball, and t-ball league is open to youth ages 5 to 14. Your child’s birth certificate is required at registration.

Once again, Blastball® will be offered for the 3 and 4 year olds. 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.

The cost to play in any of the Youth Recreation Leagues is $40.00 per child and includes a team shirt, hat, and medal. Games will be played at the Heritage Park Complex beginning June 3rd.

Traditional Karate classes underway

The Crow Community Center and Okawa Baize Karate have partnered to host karate classes for youth and adults. Classes are underway at the Crow Community Center, located at 211 Richview Road.

Karate takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:00pm to 6:00pm (ages 7-12) and 7:00pm to 8:00pm (ages 13 and up). Saturday classes take place from 1:00pm to 2:00pm (ages 7-12) and from 2:00pm to 3:00pm (ages 13 and up). Classes are $75.00 per month with a Community Center ID card but may be prorated for those registering mid-month. Center IDs are $5.00 and are good for one year at all three Community Centers.

This class, taught by David Baize, can help in developing focus, balance, strength, flexibility, reaction speed, and scientific self-defense dynamics. Karate also teaches the importance of leadership, strong character, and good values.
