ALACHUA ‒ Spring Season has officially signed off. Staff at the City of Alachua’s Recreation & Culture Department appreciates all the teams, coaches, volunteers and participants for another successful Season.

399 Recreation & Sports hosted the Alachua County Task Force on Recreation (A.C.T.F.O.R.) volleyball tournament at Legacy’s Multipurpose Building this past week. Teams from Alachua, High Springs, Newberry and Chiefland all participated.

Santa Fe Soccer Alliance, among many other teams throughout Alachua & Levy County – roughly 80 teams combined, traveled to Williston to participate in the Annual Spring End of the Season Soccer Tournament this past weekend. Thank you to the City of Williston’s Youth Athletic Association for providing amazing hospitality and a wonderful tournament.

The Alachua Raiders Football & Cheer threw a Hail Mary this past Spring Season. For the first time in over a decade the City of Alachua and High Springs residents had the opportunity to participate in Youth Flag Football. The result ended in a touchdown for the entire community!

This past Mother’s Day weekend the City of Alachua hosted Legacy Melodies at Legacy’s Amphitheater. The group/band “Smooth Operatives” put on a performance of a lifetime. Refreshments and food were provided by Pizza in the Neighborhood. And a big shout out to business owners Leon Barrows of Music Junction for engineering the event and Mellissa Hough of Magnolia Lane Photography for snapping amazing photos throughout the entire concert.
