YOUTH SPORTS YOUTH SPORTS FAQs How do I register? Register online at csparks.org or use the registration form in this guide. By registering your child you agree to comply with the Parent Code of Conduct which can be accessed on the home web page of each youth sports league and is discussed by the coach at their pre-season parent meeting.

How do I register for tee ball, soccer, and high school leagues? Registration is by grade level. Players are to be registered for the grade the player is currently in. Preschoolers must be entering kindergarten for the 2014/15 school year.

How do I register for youth baseball?

Can I request for my child to be placed on a specific team? No, due to the nature of the program, we cannot accept any other coach, player, or carpool requests. However one mutual friendship request will be honored for players in an instructional league, (8U) baseball and softball, or grade 1 and 2 soccer. A park district request form must be used for these requests and the guidelines listed on the form must be followed. These forms are available at Simkus Recreation Center and on our web site. Request deadlines are the same as registration deadlines (not early bird).

How do I volunteer to help? Volunteers are used for the following position:

Registration is by age. Players are to be registered based on their age as of April 30, 2014.

Coaches

League Coordinators

How do I register for youth softball?

Planning Committees

Registration is by age. Players are to be registered based on their age as of December 31, 2013.

Applications are available at Simkus and on the home web page of each youth sports league. These leagues can be accessed at: www.csparks.org/sports/youthsports/

Can my child play up? Playing up is not allowed for instructional soccer or tee ball.

Staff Positions

For all other leagues playing up is allowed by one age or grade level but the following process must be adhered to:

Umpires and Referees

Applicants must be at least 16 years of age.

Contracts are available at the Simkus Recreation Center and online at www.csparks.org.

1. The player must register at his or her age or grade. 2. A request to play up must be made to the program supervisor. 3. The player must attend the evaluation day for the sport and must attend at the time designated for the requested league/ level (i.e. if a player should be playing in the Mustang league but wants to play in the Bronco league, player must attend the Bronco player evaluation).

What happens if I register after the deadline? Players placed on a wait list are not guaranteed placement on a team. If you register before team formation, the player will be moved off the wait list if there are enough to form an additional team. However, if you register after team formation, or if another team cannot be formed, placement will only be done when a team or teams are below the established maximum number of team participants. Players will not be added to any team one week prior to the first scheduled game.
