Youth Sports Leagues

Due to continued hiring challenges being faced by contracted officials organizations, schools and Parks and Recreation, league maximum capacities will continue to be impacted. Due to these reduced capacities, leagues have been filling prior to registration end dates. If your desired division is filled, please contact Sports Management at 385-0458 to be added to a waiting list or if you have any additional questions. Register early for the best opportunity to play. We appreciate your understanding.

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.
