For Immediate Release

Weather Postpones Baseball Registration, Activates Snow Day Program

With incoming winter weather expected, the Springfield-Greene County Park Board reminds area residents that it will offer its Snow Day Release program if Springfield Public Schools cancel and has postponed its spring/summer baseball registration this week.

SPARC Snow Day Program

In the event of school cancellations due to winter weather, the SPARC Snow Day Program is activated from 7 a.m. – 6 p.m., at the Oak Grove Community Center, 1538 S. Oak Grove Ave.
The district-wide cancellation of Springfield Public Schools' classes is the primary determining factor for opening the Park Board program at Oak Grove Center.

The Snow Day Program is open to any K-5th grade students, and includes scheduled games, arts and crafts, afternoon snack, movies, and indoor fun. Children must bring a sack lunch. The day-long program is $12 per child per day.

Registration runs from 7 – 9 a.m., at the Oak Grove Community Center, or until the program is full. The program is limited to the first 60 registrations per day. Call 417-837-5737 to register or for more information.

Spring/Summer Youth Baseball Registration Postponed

Tomorrow's opening day of registration for spring/summer youth baseball leagues at Killian Sports Complex has been postponed to 8 a.m., Friday, Feb. 4. Killian Sports Complex is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and located at 2141 E. Pythian St. For more information, call 417-837-5817 or after hours on the Park Board's Youth Sports Hotline at 417-864-1379.
