Youth Sports Associations

It’s our goal at Spalding County Parks, Public Grounds and Leisure Services to provide our citizens with excellent programs and it’s a priority that each program offered has the child’s best interest in mind.  Parents and volunteers dedicate countless hours planning and managing youth sports programs throughout the year including Cheerleading, Baseball, Basketball, Fast pitch Softball, Soccer and Swimming. Volunteer organizations called “Associations” manage these sports and in doing so they help the community by making them affordable and accessible for all children.  Spalding County Parks, Public Grounds and Leisure Services provides and maintains the sports fields and facilities while the Youth Association plans, promotes, and is responsible for the program.  Spalding County Parks, Public Grounds and Leisure Services manages the Youth Football Program. 

The following is general information regarding the youth sports seasons. Please contact the organization for further details.
