Facilities (1)

Am I able to rent a facility or field for a party, fundraiser, or the like?

Yes, depending on availability. However, the City of Florence requires each and everyone to fill out a Park Use Permit, pay a rental fee, and provide General Liability Insurance, naming the City of Florence as additionally insured for the rental period. More information can be provided by calling (843) 665-3253.

Registration (2)

Where do I register for Maple Park Baseball, McLeod Park Baseball, Little League Baseball (Northside Park), Florence Youth Basketball League, Florence Junior Football League, Florence Track Club, Adult League Basketball, and/or Adult Softball League?

We now have online registration for our customers. Here is the link to our online portal:


You may also come up to the City of Florence Parks and Recreation Administrative Offices at 513 Barnes Street, Florence, SC 29501.

Why do I have to pay the $5 insurance fee if I already have insurance for my child?

Every child, 18 years or younger, participating in a City of Florence Athletic Program, is required to pay the $5 insurance fee once each year for the following period: December 1 – November 30. This policy is a supplemental Blanket Accident Insurance Policy which covers participants in all sports while participating during the official season of the sport as a member of a specific athletic team. This policy carries an Excess Benefits Rider in which medical benefits are paid in excess of the total benefits payable for the same loss under any other insurance or health plan.

Volunteering (1)

How do I volunteer as a coach, board member, or general support?

Call Matthew Watts, Athletic Director, at (843) 665-3253.

Programs (1)

My child is interested in participating at a certain park in baseball; can I choose in which park he/she participates?

Unfortunately, no. Maple Park and McLeod Park are governed by Dixie Youth Baseball. Under Dixie Youth, participants are zoned for specific parks, based on the location of the child’s primary residence. Because there is only one Little League Program in Florence County, any participant living in Florence County is eligible to play at the PAL Little League program at Northside Park.

      Good morning,

      The Florence Youth Basketball League board of directors are in charge of placing coaches for our youth basketball program. You must first fill out a volunteer application and turn it in to our administrative offices at 513 Barnes Street. You can pick up an application while you’re here, or you can go to the link below to access our volunteer application. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks!

    Hi, I was wondering when did the Track club season start ?

    • COF Athletics December 20, 2016 at 9:40 am #

      Registration for Track & Field begins February 1st of each year. Practices typically begin in April. The season will run from April – June, then participants have the option to compete at the state meet. They can then potentially advance to regionals and nationals (dependent on qualifying).
