The emphasis with this guide is on sports instruction, not necessarily competition.

The emphasis with this guide is on sports instruction, not necessarily competition (although some organizations or clubs will offer that outlet). We also chose to focus on less mainstream sports which often are not available through the schools or recreation districts. As a result, you will not find specific listings for many of the "ball" sports but you will find contact information for all the parks & recreation districts in Central Ohio, plus the YMCAs and some facilities that offer multi-sports instruction.

Since this is our first attempt at compiling a ton of information, we know we may not have found everyone out there, so PLEASE send us an email at contact@columbusparent.com and let us know if there is a program we can add to our database.
