We at Clayton County Athletics hope you are safe and rested during this stressful and uncertain time.  Due to the continued risk associated with the Coronavirus pandemic, all athletics programs have been suspended

We want you and your family to be healthy and happy.  So, in the interim, the park staff members have shared some of their favorite training videos to help keep you moving while we wait to resume operations. Visit our soccer, track, baseball, basketball, and football pages for sports drills you can do at home.  Please record your kids trying out the drills, and share them with us on social media.  

We’ll be in touch with exciting news about upcoming youth sports activities once public health officials tell us it is safe to restart programming.  We remain committed to providing safe and affordable recreation services for our vibrant Clayton County community.  Please take care of yourselves, and we hope to see you back in the parks very soon.

What’s IT all about?

Last year, the Clayton County Parks & Recreation Department introduced its new slogan, “It Starts in the PARKS! This simple statement captures the values and benefits derived and accrued from parks and recreation experiences. For example, participation in athletics fosters teamwork, leadership, and sportsmanship. The recreation centers promote fitness, wellness, and creativity. Reynolds Nature Preserve offers tranquility, encourages exploration, and helps to develop life balance. And, of course, the Beach at International Park is all about fun. We believe that these ideals – and so many more – are reflected in the proclamation, “It Starts in the PARKS!

So, the next time you’re enjoying the Clayton County Parks & Recreation experience – maybe at youth baseball game, or taking a Zumba class, or hiking the trails with friends – take a minute to let us know about it. Snap a selfie and share it on social media with the hashtag, “It Starts in the PARKS! If we get it trending, you may win a limited-edition t-shirt from the Department. It’s our way of showing how much we appreciate our Clayton County family.
