It takes less than five minutes to change Onslow County for the next ten years. Your participation counts!

I am proud to be a member of the Jacksonville-Onslow Complete Count Committee which has partnered with @USCensusBureau to encourage a complete and accurate count for the #2020Census.

Don’t forget to complete the census at my2020Census.Gov! Even if you lost your invitation or you did not get one, just go there and you can enter your address if you don’t have the code that came with your invitation.

Please take the pledge to participate in the Census so that Onslow County can get our fair share.

****** Attention Parents and Volunteers****
Spring 2020 Youth Baseball, Softball, and T-ball

Registration has been extended to April 12th @ 5:00pm.
Online only http://onslow.recdesk.com

There are plenty of spots available. Once registration closes there will be no more youth added to teams. Please register your child today and sign up to be a volunteer coach or Dugout mom/dad. All volunteer coaches will have to complete and pass a background check and attend a coach's class. All other volunteers must complete and pass a background check. All volunteers will be issued an ID badge from the Onslow County Parks and Recreation department.

Onslow County and the Parks and Recreation Department are following and monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in our state, across the country and the world.

Onslow County has determined that it would be in the best interest of the participants and the community if the 2020 Spring Youth Baseball, Softball, and T-ball season was postponed. There will be no practices or games scheduled before May 15th. No one is permitted to practice during this time. Please advise all parents and players of this change. Our department will continue to be forthcoming with all the information as we receive it.

We understand that this may be disappointing for some, but the health, wellness, and safety of our players, volunteers and the districts they serve are essential to all of us at the Onslow County Parks and Recreation Department, and we are choosing to follow the precedents set by the NBA, NCAA, ACC, and others and error on the side of caution.

The season will be played once it's safe for participants and their families.

Please feel free to contact our office if you have any questions.
