The City of Fountain Recreation Department is devoted to ensure a positive, fun, and educational program to all ages, no matter the skill level. Throughout the year we offer numerous youth sports including: baseball, softball, tee-ball, soccer, flag football, basketball, and volleyball.  We also offer co-ed adult sports for ages 16 and older that include:  volleyball, kickball, and softball.  Many of our programs start at four years of age and can be played all the way up to 6th grade.

Children’s guardians are encouraged to register their kids on time to avoid a late registration fees of $15 and to  provide recreations time to place all kids on a team prior to the coaches meeting.  Registration is open year round for all youth and adult sports to avoid the late registration fee your child or team must be registered before the “Registration Deadline”.  You can find all deadlines under our programs.   

Adult volunteer coaches are needed. As an incentive for adult volunteer coaches, the registration fee will be waived. This is just a simple way to thank you for helping the City of Fountain’s Recreation Program. All coaches will be required to provide information for a confidential background check upon registration.
