Harrisonburg Parks & Recreation Offerings

Earlier this week I received a copy of the Winter 2009 “Activity Guide” from Harrisonburg’s Department of Parks & Recreation. Thumbing through it, I was reminded of the great resources offered by the city to residents and non-residents alike. And a lot of the activities are free or cheap — a plus given the current economic environment.

Visit the department’s web site to see the range of offerings. (There’s a download available for the fall activity guide, so I am guessing they will replace that with the winter guide soon.) There are classes for dance, pilates, gymnastics, horseback riding, sign language, CPR, swimming, and much more.

And who knew that Harrisonburg has both a kickball league and a wiffleball league for adults? There’s also a dodgeball tournament on March 6th. If the mention of these “sports” brings up bad elementary school memories, then perhaps you’d prefer archery, volleyball, or slow-pitch softball. You can enjoy all of the above and more right here in the city.

    I absolutely LOVE volleyball! You’ve come to the right place. Rockingham County has two “leagues” of volleyball that run throughout fall and spring months. One league is in Bridgewater/Dayton, and the other is in McGaheysville/Elkton. Here is more information about schedule: http://www.rockinghamcountyva.gov/showpage.aspx?PageID=126

    The best way to get involved (if you don’t already know someone on a team) is to contact the County at the same link above and get in touch with the appropriate department head. The teams fill up fast, so act sooner rather than later!

    There is also a church league, if you are interested in that. It runs both fall and spring as well. More information can be found here: http://www.valleychurchleague.org/

    I am interested in learning sign language and wondering where there is any lessons being taught.
