Free Silver Social to celebrate Mardi Gras
Are you at least 50 years of age and looking for something fun to do?

Registration underway for Youth Recreation Leagues
Registration for the Clarksville Parks and Recreation’s Youth Recreation Leagues is now underway. Participants can register through March 27th at any of our community centers, the Parks and Recreation Main office as well as online at recpro.cityofclarksville.com.
The baseball, softball and t-ball league is open to youth ages 5 to 14. Birth certificates are required at registration to verify the child’s age for first time registrants only.
Once again, Clarksville Parks and Recreation will be offering Blastball® for the 3 to 4 year olds. Blastball® is a fun alternative to traditional t-ball and uses a “honking” base to entertain younger plays, bringing excitement to learning the fundamentals. This league 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 Baseball Fields beginning June 8th. Team photos will be taken June 6th.
Each team will practice once a week until the season begins, at which time, teams will have one practice a week and one game a week.
