There are 2 ways that you can register:

Our office is located in the Greenwood Athletic Complex in the building beside the tennis courts. You must bring a copy of your child’s birth certificate if he/she has never played for Greenwood County Parks and Recreation. Registrations are taken during sign-up from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm Monday thru Friday. Late registrations will be taken; however, your child or children will be placed on a waiting list unless there are playing spots still available at the time the registration is received.

2) You can download a registration form from Forms And Documents  and mail it to Greenwood County Parks and Recreation, PO Box 3008, Greenwood, SC 29648.You must include a completed registration form, a copy of your child’s birth certificate and the $50.00 registration fee. If your child has played for Greenwood County Parks and Recreation before a birth certificate will not be necessary. It is your responsibility to contact us at (864) 942-8515 to make sure that we have received the registration on or before the last day of registration and to find out when your child’s team assignment will be. Registrations must be received by 5:00 pm on the last day of registration. Registrations received by mail after the last day of registration will be placed on a waiting list unless there are playing spots available at the time it is received.

Rain Out Information / Inclement Weather
In the event that the Athletics Office has to cancel any of the scheduled league games due to bad weather or poor playing conditions caused by inclement weather, the staff will update the Rain Out Number to alert the public of the games that will be cancelled for that evening. It is the coach's responsibility to call 942-8721 and share the updated league information with his or her teammates.
The recorder will be updated no later than 4:00 pm of that particular game day. Every effort will be made to conduct these games. This decision is not solely judged by the amount of rain alone, it has more to do about the safety conditions of the fields. Please do not assume that if it is raining in your area of town, that it was enough to rain out our games at the ballfields. Also, it may have rained more on our ballfields than it did in your area of town. Games will also be cancelled when a lightning storm becomes an issue. So always make sure to check the rain out number after 4:00 pm if you are not sure of the status of your game for that evening.

If games are suspended due to lightning you are to go immediately to 1) your car or 2) take shelter inside a building. DO NOT remain in dugouts, on playing fields, under trees or picnic shelters or remain in any unsafe area. Games may resume once lightning threat has diminished.

The situation may come up that when we make the call of conducting our leagues and the weather conditions worsen between 4:00 pm and the first scheduled game time, the decision to play the games lies solely on the supervisor scheduled to work that evening. In the event that a decision is made that the playing conditions are not safe at game time and decide to cancel games, we will update the rain out number to alert the coaches and players of the cancellation.

The recorder will only be updated when necessary. Call 942-8721 after 4:00 pm to get the rain out information for that evening.
