Currituck Parks and Rec announces youth sports lineup

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and North Carolina health guidelines, Currituck County Parks and Recreation has made several changes to its lineup of youth sports for the 2020 fall season. “While some traditional fall sports are cancelled, a new list of options is being offered to provide local children with healthy activities, athletic competition, and social interaction in ways that limit the participants’ risk of exposure to the COVID-19 coronavirus,” stated a Currituck County press release.

The original fall sports of tackle football, volleyball and soccer have been canceled.

In place, Currituck County will offer the following:

Fall Baseball/Softball/T-Ball for Ages 5-16

  • Registration opened Monday, August 17 and will close on September 7.
  • Teams for ages 5-6 will be formed by geographic locations.
  • Teams for ages 7-16 will be formed by a coaches-only draft on September 10.
  • Practices will begin on September 14.
  • Games will begin on October 5.
