What’s happening in High Springs

Spring 2018 Olympic Themed Uniforms!!!!!!!

As we celebrate our National Teams in the Olympics, the City of High Springs Recreation Department has decided to create our one of a kind Olympic themed uniforms with our City’s Colors.  This spring our athletes will receive these uniforms when they register for     Volleyball or Soccer.  On the back of these uniforms we will display the team sponsor as well as a number.  We understand that parents, friends, and family may want to purchase a    jersey for themselves so we are offering a signup for additional jerseys for 25$.  You can request a blank jersey (no number), one with your child’s number on it, or one with your own unique number on it (1-99).
