Trying out for a school team?

Click here for instructions on what to do if your child is trying out for a school team but would like to participate in a Parks & Rec. activity if he/she does not make the school team.  Do not wait until the try-outs are complete; all registrations must take place during the designated registration period for the activity.

Interested in coaching?

Complete the Coach Application and submit it to the Athletic Coordinator during the designated registration period for the activity you would like to coach.  Please read through the packet carefully, as revisions have been made and new requirements implemented as recent as 9/22/17.  

When can I register?

Registration dates and times are listed on the online calendar.  Information found on the online calendar is subject to change without notice.  Please check back periodically for updates or call us at 706-344-3646 during office hours (Monday-Friday 8:00AM-5:00PM).

How is registration advertised?

Registration information is advertised the following ways:

  1. Online at www.dawsoncounty.org
  2. Dawson Co. Parks & Rec. Facebook page
  3. Through the Dawson County school system in the form of advertisement sign and brochers/activity guide distribution
  4. In the Parks & Recreation Activity Guides (online Flip-Book version of the activity guides contain updated information)
  5. Posted on signs and flyers at both Rock Creek Sports Complex and Veterans Memorial Park
  6. Email blasts sent thru the Dawson County Parks & Recreation database (email addresses are collected when you register for an activity or rent a facility directly thru the Parks & Recreation administrative office)

Advertisement for registration generally begins 2-4 weeks prior to the first date of the registration period.  The dates given for registration are the only days in which registration applications will be accepted. Registration applications will not be accepted without payment or Fee Waiver (approved through Administration).

What do I do if I miss registration?

A Wait List becomes available immediately following the completion of registration. If you fail to register a participant during the designated registration dates and times, you may add the participant's name to the Wait List by calling (706) 344-3646 during regular office hours (Monday-Friday 8:00AM-5:00PM).  If a spot becomes available for the participant to enroll in the activity, Administration will contact you. Adding a participant to the Wait List does not guarantee him/her a spot in the activity. For youth sports, a required additional $20 Late Fee will be added into the total fees if the participant is removed from the Wait List and added to the activity. For adult sports, a required additional $50 Late Fee will be added into the total fees if the team is removed from the Wait List and added into the league. This fee may not be waived.

Can I register if I do not live in Dawson County?

Some activities allow non-residents to participate while others do not due to agency regulations.  When applicable, an additional $20 fee will be added for any non-Dawson County resident wishing to participate.
