Youth Sports

Team sports are a great way for children to stay active while developing important social and organizational skills that will benefit them their entire lives.

Grove City Parks and Recreation offers several recreational youth sports programs throughout the year that teach teamwork and sportsmanship with goals of encouraging a healthy lifestyle through fun, safe and positive experiences. All players regardless of skill level are encouraged to participate. All sports are co-rec except basketball which features separate leagues for boys and girls.

In the spring and summer, boys and girls ages 5 to 17 take to the diamonds in Windsor Park to play Little League® baseball. The community is welcome to come watch the kids play ball. Join us for a special Friday Night Grand Slam community event the night before Opening Day, followed by the start of the season the first Saturday in May.

Windsor Park is also home to the fall youth baseball league, which allows players to continue to play our national past time through the cooler days of late summer and early fall.

Indoor volleyball teams made up of players in grades three through high school stay active serving, spiking, setting and digging at area schools through the fall in local school gyms.

Winter is the time to hit the hardwood for players in kindergarten through grade 12. More than 700 participants stay active through the winter while developing basketball skills and sportsmanship. Games are played in local school district buildings.

For the safety of their children, parents are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the symptoms of concussion and sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Please review the Ohio Department of Health Concussion Information Sheet and Sudden Cardiac Arrest and Lindsay’s Law Information for the Youth Athlete and Parent/Guardian.

Youth participants sign up as individuals and receive uniform shirts. Registration for all sports must be completed in person at the Parks and Recreation office.
