About Salem Indiana

SmallIndianaSalem is located in scenic Southern Indiana just 35 miles north of Louisville, Kentucky and less than 100 miles south of Indianapolis, Indiana. Salem is a great place to live and make a living. We have high achieving public schools, and a wide variety of community activities. Salem also has a strong and diverse economic base. If you're a visitor to Salem, we hope you will take note of our many unique and historic destinations. As a city, Salem has retained much of its small town flavor, a flavor that is enhanced by the city’s tree-lined streets, stately old homes and a friendly atmosphere that has been nurtured and handed down through the generations.

Youth League Football is open to any Washington County child in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades. Sign-ups will be held at the Salem Senior Center located at 1705 N. Shelby Street in Salem. The dates and times are as follows:

4:30pm - 7:30pm
Sunday, September 20, 2020

The Salem Parks and Recreation Department would like to thank the Washington County Health Department, the City of Salem, Mr. Acton and Salem Community Schools, the Salem Park Board, Salem High School football players, and all three county High School coaches. Without all these people we would not be able to have a season. We will continue working with the local Health Department to ensure safe practices and COVID protocols are in place.
We are looking forward to our Youth League Football this fall!
