If your child plans to play recreational ball this spring, make sure he or she is registered by Friday, March 1. That’s the deadline to sign-up with The Cheraw Recreation and Leisure Services Department at the Cheraw Community Center. Hours of registration are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A birth certificate is required for anyone that has never played before. There will be a $7 insurance fee if the child has not played an activity with the recreational department since Aug. 1, 2012.
