Ruston Parks and Recreation’s fall registration is currently open. This is the time to register for the following: Youth:  Tackle and flag football, soccer (under 4, under 5, under 6, under 8 and under 10) and Punt, Pass & Kick Competition. Adult:  Softball and men’s 7 on 7 flag football. The final day to register for our youth activities will be Friday, September 1. You can register online at for both soccer and flag football.  Since we require a birth certificate and height and weight measurements for tackle football, you must register in our office on James Street. For the next two months, if you come in to the office to register or reserve a park pavilion, consider bringing in a nonperishable food item(s) that will be donated to Christian Community Action. Remember that coaches are an integral part of any youth program, and we are always interested in signing up volunteer coaches for our leagues. Give a little time, and get the satisfaction of shaping a child’s life and much more. Additionally, you may request a letter that allows you the opportunity to receive a $500 deduction on your 2017 state income taxes. Don’t miss out! Sign up today. For more information, contact the RPAR office at 255-5800 or
