Youth Sports

The focus for each of our Youth Sport Programs is to emphasize skill development and to promote a positive athletic experience in a non-competitive atmosphere. Conduct on the sidelines can make a positive or negative impact on not just your child but others as well. Please keep it positive and respectful towards the coaches, referees, and most of all the players. Athens Arts Parks and Recreation does not keep or recognize team records or league standings

Fees and Registrations

All sports fees are $35 per child, per sports. All registrations are taken at the Athens Community Center (701 E. State St.) during each sports registration window or online

Any age appropriate child who receives benefits through Athens County Job & Family Services is eligible to pay $10 per sport, per child. In order to obtain this benefit you will be asked to show proof (via child’s insurance card) at time of registration.

Sponsorship Opportunities

If you know of a business interested in sponsoring any of our youth teams please contact Erin Helms via email
Sponsorships range between $100-$150 per team. Sponsorships are the purchases of the team shirts.
