In the fall, boys in grades four through six play youth football, and girls in grades three through six play volleyball. 

In the winter months boys and girls in grade three through six play basketball. 

In the summer, baseball and softball are offered to all kids ages five through 18.  Laurel has its own softball field and baseball field, both located close to the Laurel City Park.
