The City of Morton’s Recreation Department sponsors nearly every kind of team sport for all levels of our youth. Sports activities are: Tee Ball, Baseball, Softball, Football, Basketball and Soccer.
City league sports are played for the most part at Farris Municipal Park. Basketball and Football activities are played at Morton Public Schools’ facilities. Most families in town participate in the city league sports program. A large percentage of our youth play during any given season. With year-round league sports, all this enthusiasm and training pay off because all of our high schools’s sports programs are very successful year in and year out.
