The Douglas County Parks and Recreation Department is offering youth baseball and softball registration at its newest recreational facility in Lithia Springs. The park opened in the spring of last year, and will offer the two sports for the first time in quite some time for kids ages 4 through 14 years of age.
Registration is underway now at Deer Lick Park Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and at Lithia Springs Park on Saturday, Jan. 12 and 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The park is located at 2922 S. Sweetwater Park, Lithia Springs.
The great flood of 2009 destroyed Woodrow Wilson/Lithia Springs Park due to rapid and high waters, prompting Douglas County Officials to build Lithia Springs Park, as well as to renovate Woodrow Wilson Park which is now a passive park. The original Woodrow Wilson/Lithia Springs Park was a multi faceted athletic park, and was home to Lithia Springs Girls Softball and to Woodrow Wilson Boys Baseball.
The Douglas County Parks and Recreation Department is looking for good coaches, good parents and kids who are eager to start a new program that will focus on skill development, discipline, and a dedication to baseball and softball. All coaches are required to go through the PAYS Certification Program as well as a background check.
