Registration Deadline Friday!

You will notice something about our entry deadlines; most of the time they are on Friday. We are doing this in an effort to promote deadlines more efficiently, prevent late registrations, and to develop successful programs.

Most dates and times are set, but this schedule is tentative and can change. For changes and to catch up on all of the youth, adult, and other programs offered by the Russell Recreation Commission, look in the Russell County News or listen to KRSL radio or their website newsletter for the latest information.

When registering online it is understood that you have read and agree to the
