​​League Information

​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 who organizes programs in conjunction with Sports Management. 

The city offers leagues for youth age 10 through 18 and most Recreation Associations also offer additional tackle and/or flag leagues for youth under age 10 called "Farm Leagues." 

Recreation Associations 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. ​​​​
