We maintain 25 playgrounds, 8 baseball fields, 3 youth softball fields, 3 adult softball fields, 1 olympic pool and 10 tennis courts. 

Some of our activities include baseball (spring and fall), softball, basketball, arts programs, volleyball, swimming, flag football, lifeguard certification, umpire clinics and playground activities.

Our busiest times of the year are spring and summer. During these times we design leagues and schedules for thousands of Vicksburg-Warren residents. We schedule umpires and scorekeepers and are generally responsible for the smooth operation of all our leagues.
