The city is divided into 13 geographic areas for Parks and Recreation youth sports. Each area has a volunteer Area Chairperson and Community Recreation Association that organizes programs in conjunction with Sports Management​. The city offers leagues for youth age 10 through 18. Most Recreation Associations also offer leagues for youth under age 10 called "farm leagues.​" 

Recreation Associations will charge a player registration fee. Fees charged and sports/age groups offered vary by area. Players must attend school (K-12) to be eligible. High school varsity and junior varsity players are not eligible for the same community league sport.​​​​​​
