The Madison County Rural Recreation Department coordinates a variety of sports for both boys and girls ages 5 to 14: spring-baseball/softball, fall-baseball/softball, basketball and cheerleading, and volleyball. Gyms are located throughout Madison County. All services depend heavily on volunteer coordinators and parents/staff. More than 25,000 youngsters participate in the different sports every year plus tremendous family support. When first registering your child in sports, you must bring a copy of their birth certificate. Program fees for each sport cost approximately $85 (that fee includes supplemental sports activity insurance). Uniforms may involve additional cost depending on whether the team has sponsors. Registration begins in February for Spring-Baseball and Softball; in July for Fall-Baseball and Softball; in October for Basketball and Cheerleading; and in January for Volleyball.
