When kids play sports, we ALL win.
Why Youth Sports Matter
All kids can benefit from participating in youth sports! Research tells us that sports:
Increase kids’ chances of growing up healthy.
Support kids with building friendships and learning skills like respect and teamwork.
Help students thrive in school and in future careers.
Give kids a place to have fun — the #1 reason kids say they play sports in the first place.
Park and recreation agencies offer youth sports that give all children, inclusive of those with disabilities, a fun, safe place to play where they feel like they belong: so every child can experience the benefits of youth sports.
Plus, youth sports are fun for the whole family! Parents and caregivers like you can enjoy meeting other parents and build a sense of community with families involved in youth sports.
Park and Recreation
Park and recreation agencies are committed to providing affordable and fun sport options that help children thrive. Because the programs are local, you save time and money since you don’t have to travel far to participate.
What’s more, park and recreation coaches are invested in kids’ success, because they’re caring adults from the community who are passionate about sports and coaching.
