We often get asked about youth sports. The most popular questions are:

When do sport seasons start? 

Depending on the sport some sign ups start in the Fall and others in the spring. ** These are estimated dates of when they will start and end. ** Soccer: registration starts two months before game begin. Spring games start the beginning  of March and end around mothers day. Fall games starts the end of September and run through the end of October early November. T-ball/Coach Pitch: Registration ends the beginning of April. Practices and games to follow. Baseball: registration must be received no later than the second weekend in March. Practices and games to follow. Softball: registration early January - early March. Practices and games to follow. Swim: registration accepted till early June. Meets begin the middle of June - end of July

Where do I sent the money to?  

Each youth sports organizations such as soccer, t-ball, baseball, softball, swimming, & tackle football has forms to fill out and submit back to them. These forms will be available at TJ Davis Recreation Center. On that form will be a P.O. Box number you will have to sent your money to. TJ Davis Recreation Center can not accept any money through the organizations. The only sport you pay directly at TJ Davis is basketball.  

Why is there a user fee?

The independent youth sports organizations, such as soccer, t-ball, baseball, softball, swimming, and tackle football, collect registration fees from each participant. In turn they provide the participants with proper equipment, practices, games, and officials. These funds are not contributed to the maintenance and utilities on the fields/facilities that are involved with each sport. The athletic user fee of $5 per city resident and $10 per non-city resident is charged per participant. These funds collected are used to maintain and upgrade fields/facilities. One user fee is collected per participant per sport. If a participant participates in a league and is on a travel team, that participant is only required to pay the user fee once. These fees are collected annually.

Who opens the park restrooms?

Each independent youth sports organization is in charge of opening and closing bathrooms for their leagues. While the restrooms are open we ask each organization to be accountable and responsible for these restrooms. This includes, monitoring, clean up, and reporting all maintenance issues concerning the restrooms. Each organization is given keys to restrooms and lights. Should anyone see that the restrooms are not open during league play please call your organizations. If there are maintenance issues please call our administrative offices 533-2847 ext. 3 and ask for Maintenance Superintendent Ryan Newsome.
