When do I sign up my child for sports?

If you are interested in involving your child in a sports activity, under the Parks & Recreation department page there is a listing of sports activities for the entire year.  As a general rule, sign-ups for a specific sport are held a season prior to the activity.  For example, winter sports hold their sign-ups in the fall and spring sports typically hold their sign-ups in the winter.  The exception are fall sports.  They hold their sign-ups in the spring, as summertime does not work for many people.

At what age can my child start playing sports?

Activity is very important in a child’s development.  However, most organized and instructional sports typically do not start until kindergarten age, some start even later.  If you are looking for a program for younger children, we suggest contacting a private business that has programs that allow kids to be social while developing motor skills.

Do I need a permit to play a game or hold a practice in a City park?

City parks are open to the public.  However, by obtaining a permit for a specific location and time, you can assure your usage. If a team or organization is permitted to use a location, they have the first right to use the field.  Fields are generally booked well in advance, so please call ahead.  (413) 322-5620.
