Youth ball registration opens soon
HOUSTON/ HOULKA – Children and youth will soon have an opportunity to join in an annual spring activity as baseball and softball registration in Houston is currently open and Houlka’s will open Feb. 2.
Houston Park and Rec Director, John Gravat, said parents can sign up children Monday through Friday at Houston City Hall and has several Saturday dates planned as well.
Super Saturday will be held April 20 to kick off the season and a couple of new events are planned this year as well.
A mid-season family day will bbe held May 18 with a picnic in Joe Brigance Park and activities for children and youth. An end-of-season awards day will be held for all players June 14 in the park to recognize players and coaches as a whole.
Houlka’s registration opens Feb. 2 at City Hall from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and continues during regular business hours at the Mayor’s Offce.
Both leagues are open to children ages three and up. Houston players must bring a birth certificate to register while only new players in Houlka are required to bring a birth certificate.
As both leagues are volunteer-based, many hands are needed to ensure local children have an opportunity to enjoy the spring season. Coaches, referees, concession workers and people to assist in other areas are needed in both leagues and monetary sponsorships are always welcome.
For information on the Houston league, call John Gravat at 542-9139. In Houlka, contact Misty or Brad Dobbs at 542-1085 or 542-0402.
