The system has leagues in many sports throughout
the year. Youth leagues include baseball, football,
cheerleading, soccer, lacrosse, rugby, softball and
basketball for those up to 18 years old. Adults can join
leagues for softball, flag football, basketball, ultimate
Frisbee, kickball and cornhole. BMX and archery have
leagues for all ages.
Soccer and baseball remain perennial favorites for kids,
according to county spokesman Ross Cavitt, while softball
is a winner for adults. There’s also the fast-growing sport
of pickleball, which is taking the county by storm.
The Cobb league system has competitive leagues, which
may include travel play, and recreational leagues for
people who just want to socialize and have fun.
