T-ball and softball sign-ups are the next two weekends for the Centertown Youth League with the season projected to start Monday, June 29.

“Some people have already signed up because we had started when COVID-19 hit,” said league representative Phillip Prater. “We’ll be taking registration the next two Saturdays and also offering refunds at that time if there’s anyone who no longer wants to play.”

Sign-ups will be held this Saturday, May 23, and next Saturday, May 30, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Sign-ups are held at Centertown Recreational Park on Tobitt Road.

Prater said after final registration is held May 30, there will be a draft to finalize teams then coaches will be able to schedule a few practices before the season opens.

“We feel like we had a very good league last year with over 300 kids participating,” said Prater. “Kids are wanting something to do and I’ve heard from a number of families that they aren’t going on vacation this year. They’re just going to stay close to home.”

Prater said games will likely be played throughout the week, except for Wednesdays and Sundays, in order to accommodate the most games as possible. He said the complex in Centertown has three fields so that should help ease congestion.

The age groups are as follows:

• Training league – ages 3-4

• T-ball – ages 5-6

• Coach pitch – boys ages 7-9, and girls ages 7-10

• Junior league – boys ages 10-13, and girls ages 11-14
