Athletics Leagues & Games

Season dates and information are now available, with registration through your local athletics league beginning July 1. Download a summary of our proposed fall schedule and statement of potential changes. A complete list of modifications will be finalized by July 21.
  • Schedule Subject to Change - Please note that policy and procedural changes or schedule modifications may be made at any point in the season as circumstances warrant. Be aware that while recreational level games can be played in Phase Three, Phase Two physical distancing guidelines are not conducive to recreational level game play. Consequently, should Roanoke County be placed in Phase Two at any point during the season, games would be postponed during the reversion and teams would only be permitted to hold practices in accordance with published Phase Two guidelines. Please note, however, should the reversion to Phase 2 occur, it will likely be necessary to extend the season through November 14 to accommodate the regular season without consideration of post-season play.
