City of Pittsfield Community Development to Offer Free Recreation Program

The city’s Department of Community Development Recreation Program has announced a new program called Dig This! Volleyball.  The city and Advance Volleyball Academy have teamed up for this free program which will introduce and teach volleyball, including the fundamentals, rules, and key skills of the sport.  

Dig This! Volleyball will be a two-day program conducted June 27-28 for Pittsfield children ages 5 to 11.  The program will run from 10 a.m. to noon on both days at Marchisio Park, Dalton Division Road. 

Pre-registration is required, and participation is first-come, first-serve due to limited amount of spaces in the program.  Depending on the popularity of the program, additional sessions may be added. Forms are available at the Department of Community Development in room 205 of City Hall, or online at

Additional support is provided by Pittsfield Tuesday Volleyball and coaches from local colleges.
