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.
