ADULT KICKBALL & SOFTBALL
Time to hit the field! We are bringing back the playground favorite, but for mom, dad, and the grownups this time! Games will be held on Monday nights at Finch Park. You might say... but I have kids... to which we say, BRING EM! We have a super ginormous new playground right beside the field that the kids will love, bring them on then let them play while you do the same. Find some friends and get your team together, or sign up as an individual and look to meet some new friends!

GIRL'S LACROSSE
We are excited to be partnering with the Davidson Youth Lacrosse Association again for our spring season. The program is designed to develop girl’s youth lacrosse throughout the county, and will give girls the opportunity to learn the game, and compete against teams from around the Triad. 

SKATEBOARDING

Is your kid looking to take their skating to the next level?  A seasoned skating instructor will guide them through skills like dropping in, ollies, kick turn, pump, and other skills. This is a group lesson, but skaters will be given instruction based on their current ability so not every skill will be addressed in each session. Skaters must provide their own equipment (helmet, elbow and knee pads) and wear closed toe shoes. 


Lexington Parks and Recreation Department offers a variety of quality athletic programs to over 600 youth participants each year, as well as adults. Our goal is to provide an educational environment where kids are able to learn and develop necessary skills for the sport they are playing. We also look to provide sports for adults, both through leagues and organized pick up games. Want to get involved, or see us offer another sport? Let us know!

Add our weather hotline to your phone, 336-248-3969. Also, join our 
Facebook Group that is strictly for athletics. We post updates about schedules, standings, weather and league information, and pictures and videos of action!  Hope to see you there! #activefirst 🏀   🥍 🛹
