Rec Center Seeks Coaches and Fall Sports Registration

This will be the second year that the Colleton County Parks and Recreation Center will host a fall tee ball league. Registration for tee ball is now open, with the early registration fee still available until July 27th. Fall tee ball will be for children ages 4 to 6 years old and will be coed. Last year the rec center had a positive turn out and decided to extend the ages and include a darlings (girls 7-8 years old) and machine pitch (boys ages 7-8) league to their line up of fall sports. Registration forms can be picked up at the rec center and registration fees apply for each sport participated in. As with all recreation sports, a copy of the athlete’s birth certificate and proof of insurance are also required at registration. Registration fees for tee ball, darlings, and coach pitch are $40.00 until July 27th and $60.00 until August 24th, the deadline.

Fall sports will also continue to include a Juniors and Seniors football league. Juniors include players who are 7 to 9 years old on or before September 1st. The Seniors football league will be players who are ages 10 to 12 years old. According to Colleton County Parks and Recreation Athletic Director, Jarrett Ritter, last year the rec had enough players for 3 teams per league and they are hoping to add at least one additional team to each age division for this year. Registration fees for football are $75.00 until July 27th and $100.00 until August 24th, the deadline.

In order for the rec center to host successful sporting events, they depend on volunteers to coach their youth sports. According to AD Ritter, the rec center is always looking for coaches willing to step up and pass on valuable knowledge to new players. Fall sports including football, tee ball, darlings, and coach pitch are all seeking coaches. If you would like additional information about fall sports, you can visit the rec center’s website at https://rec.colletoncounty.org or you can visit their Facebook page, Colleton County Parks and Recreation, for all of the latest information. If you would like to volunteer to become a coach for any or the fall sports, a youth sports coach application can be found on their website. The application will be for a required background check.
