Youth Sports 

Over the years the Buhl Community Recreation Center has provided countless sports, games and activities for our youth in the Shenango Valley.  In that same spirit we are providing additional youth programs which focus on physical activity and teamwork in a fun and safe environment for girls and boys of all ages.  In order to promote youth sports we have established a team of youth sports coaches who are dedicated and committed to serve the kids as well as the school districts of our valley. 

The Buhl Community Recreation Center’s history has always been to help promote youth activities in the Shenango Valley.  We want to experience this opportunity, to have a great recreational facility available for your kids!  So please give us your input, we want to hear from you!  This is your chance to tell us what you want available for your kids.  Also, if you have any interest in volunteering as a future coach or assistant in any sport let us know.

We recognize that future generations stand before us as our children, let’s give them every opportunity to succeed, develop and have fun at the Buhl Community Recreation Center.
