CHANGE IN YOUTH ATHLETICS FOR FALL 2020!

Hi Harrisburg Community - Please review the following in detail, as it pertains to the Harrisburg Parks and Recreation Fall 2020 Youth Athletic Sports Season. We regret to inform you that we will not be able to host a traditional youth or adult sports program Fall 2020 as a result of the continued COVID-19 restrictions. Due to continued extensions to Governor Cooper's Executive Orders, we are unable to navigate a traditional sports season while remaining compliant with those restrictions across all sports offerings. However, in response to this, we have exciting news! Our Fall 2020 Athletic Season is still a GO but just in a modified format. Our NEW Youth Athletic Camps are the key to excelling your child in their sport through conditioning and skill-building! 

  • Already Registered for Pop Warner? No problem! We have reached out to each family to talk through our NEW camp-style format! If you have not talked to a member of our Parks and Recreation staff in regards to your family's plans for the Fall season, please contact us by phone at (704) 455-7275.
  • Were you hesitant to register for a Fall Sport due to COVID related reasons? This is the PERFECT opportunity for you to improve your skills all the while staying safe and healthy!
  • Are you registered for Pop Warner but no longer want to participate in our Fall Camps? Not a problem! We have reached out to each individual family to figure out the best plan for your needs. We also have started issuing refunds if you did not wish to participate this Fall. Again, if you have not talked to a member of our Parks and Recreation staff in regards to your family's plans for the Fall season, please contact us by phone at (704) 455-7275.

Please review our plan for our Fall Athletic Camps and read through all the exciting things we have in store for this season. If you have any questions, please reach out to Harrisburg Parks and Recreation directly via social media or by phone (704) 455-7275.

We truly appreciate your support and patience during this time. We are excited about this new format and believe it will create the best and safest outlet that our youth community needs!
