Saturday Morning





About the Saturday Morning Program (SMP)


The Saturday Morning Program was started more than two decades ago as a way to keep children ages 5-12 active during the winter months.  This FREE program is made possible thanks to a sponsorship from the Optimist Club of Clarksville.


All events our FREE, but children must be pre-registered in order to attend.  Registration opens 1 week before each event, and the deadline to register is the Thursday before each event.  Transportation is not included, so parents must drop-off and pickup their children at each event location.

Program Rules


1. Children may only be dropped off up to 10 minutes before the scheduled event start time.  Early drop-offs will not be allowed.


2. Children must be picked up within 10 minutes of the scheduled event end time.  Any child who is picked up late will not be allowed to attend future SMP activities.


3. Space is limited for each event, so no walk-ups are allowed.  If a child is not registered and shows up at an event, they will not be allowed to stay for the day's activity.


4. All events are FREE, but some of our events will be at locations that have concession stands.  Children are responsible for bringing spending money if they would like to purchase food.


5.  The Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to fighting, foul language, or bad behavior.  We reserve the right to refuse service to any child who violates this policy.


6. If a child is unable to attend an event, parents MUST cancel their child's registration by the Thursday before the event, in order to avoid an "absence".  If a child is registered for an event and does not show twice, the child will no longer be able to register for SMP events.  We have limited space for each event, so when a child registers and does not show, they are taking up a spot that goes unused.
