The goal of our athletics program is to provide an enjoyable experience for each youth participant, while developing character, sport related skills, sportsmanship and promoting good will among all teams and individuals.  Although sports are competitive by nature, the City of Salem Parks and Recreation Department's intentions are to place less emphasis on winning, while promoting the foundation for a lifetime of physical activity and good health for each participant. 

Notice to Participants:


All City of Salem Youth and Adult leagues scheduled for this Spring have been CANCELLED. This includes all Youth Baseball, Youth Softball, Youth Soccer and Adult Softball. We will begin issuing participant refunds this week either by credit card or check, depending on the initial method of payment at the time of registration.

Adhering to Virginia’s Phase 3 Corona virus restrictions, Salem Parks & Recreation fully anticipates offering a Fall 2020 youth sports season with some adjustments.
