Youth Sports Leagues

UPDATE June 5 

The City has been working on a plan to safely reopen our parks, recreation facilities, and programs. The plan is to reopen in three phases. In Phase I, we opened the outdoor features of our parks including the ramadas, playgrounds and sport courts. We are now ready to enter Phase II, with a modified schedule for the Gymnasium, Walking/Jogging Track, and Fitness Center at the Foothills Recreation Center. There are no current plans for programs or sports facilities available during June. However, we expect to begin taking sports field rental reservations in Phase III around July 1. Adult Softball will begin at the end of July with registration information available soon. Thank you for your patience as we work to provide quality programs and facilities in a safe, responsible way.
