    I am a working mother and my children want to be involved in sports during the up coming summer, however I find the price a bit steep considering the fact that Ido not work as many hours in the summer as I do during the regular school year. Are there any more programs around clarksville that are more afforadble.

    • You might want to look into the Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department for its offerings in sports. In addition, many APSU athletic team coaches conduct their own camps, so you might want to call the APSU Athletics Office to see what is planned for children this summer. I hope this helps.
