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.
