A variety of other extracurricular activities are also available through the recreation department, including ballet, taekwondo swimming and golf.
Registration for most extracurricular activities is open throughout the program and is not subject to the Feb. 5 deadline for spring sports, with the exception of golf at the First Tee of Troup County.
