DUNN — The City of Dunn Parks and Recreation released its most recent updates regarding fall sports programs last week, including plans to hold both youth baseball and softball leagues.
Fall baseball and softball will be available for ages 8 to 15 with early registration open for Dunn residents only until Wednesday, Sept. 9. The general public can register from Sept. 10-18, if openings are still available.
Youth co-ed volleyball registration is open from now until Sept. 18 for ages 8 to 17. Dunn Parks and Rec is also hosting an outdoor adult volleyball league that is now accepting teams until Sept. 14.
The decision comes nearly a month after all county parks and recreation officials decided to postpone football and soccer leagues this fall, citing concerns associated with the novel coronavirus.
Last week, Gov. Roy Cooper announced an order that moves the state into Phase 2.5 of his reopening plan in response to COVID-19. The newest phase eases prior restrictions, allowing access to playgrounds while also giving way for groups of 50 or less to gather outdoors and no more than 25 indoors.
There will be no drafts conducted this year and all registrations must be filled out online at RecDesk.
The Western Harnett Youth Recreation Department has opened registration for fall baseball and softball thru Sept. 12.
Boys and girls ages 4-12 are eligible for registration online or at the department's recreation office, located between Western Harnett Middle and Western Harnett High, from 9 to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12.
If you elect to come to the office to register, a face covering is highly recommended to enter the building. Payments accepted are check, cash or money order.
The Angier Parks and Recreation Department is accepting registration for fall t-Ball, baseball and softball from now until Friday, Sept. 18. Both registration and COVID-19 waiver forms can be found on the town website.
