Youth Sports Leagues

Due to continuing hiring challenges and staffing shortages, youth basketball will only be offered for the 10-12 (12U) league for the winter season. Check with your area recreation association for additional registration details. Click HERE for the full statement.

Community Recreation Associations​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

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/Athletics. The city offers leagues for youth age 10 through 18. Player's age as of September 30 of current year determines eligibility (see bylaws for further details). Most Recreation Associations also offer leagues for youth under age 10 (called "farm leagues"), and some also offer baseball.  

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.
