If you are registering for Soccer, Football, Cheerleading or Cross Country, it is likely you will save substantial time if you register at either of the City of Charleston Recreation Department offices in West Ashley: Bees Landing Recreation Complex or Mary Utsey Playground.  Or Click here to go to the City of Charleston’s Online Registration web page.

While you may register for Soccer, Football, Cheerleading or Cross Country at St. Andrew’s Parks and Playground or St. Andrew’s Family Fitness PLUS, each St. Andrew’s facility has only ONE workstation with the City of Charleston’s registration software installed. Therefore, there may be a significant wait to register for Soccer, Football, Cross Country or Cheerleading at St. Andrew’s Parks or St. Andrew’s Family Fitness PLUS.

The City of Charleston facilities (addresses below) each have multiple workstations available to register for Soccer, Football, Cross Country or Cheerleading, which will greatly decrease your wait time.

You may register for Baseball and Softball at either St. Andrew’s facility with minimal wait, as multiple workstations with the necessary registration software are available at St. Andrew’s for Baseball and Softball.  You may also register for Baseball, and Softball  at the City of Charleston facilitiesalthough you may have a shorter waiting time at either St. Andrew’s facility for Baseball and Softball.

What is a Concussion?

A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.

Concussions can occur in any sport or recreation activity. So, all coaches, parents, and athletes need to learn concussion signs and symptoms and what to do if a concussion occurs.
