Youth Sports Programs

Alleghany Recreation offers several youth sports programs throughout the year. Our mission is to provide affordable and equal opportunities for the youth in Alleghany County to participate in recreational programs. We encourage good sportsmanship and behavior from the kids as well as the parents. We are here for the kids to have a great learning experience and most importantly to have fun. Alleghany Recreation depends on sponsors and volunteers for the success of the programs. Sponsors receive an 8″ by 10″ team photo, their name on the team tee-shirts, and their name on all printed material.
