Youth Sports

YOUTH SPORTS GENERAL INFORMATION RECREATIONAL SPORTS PHILOSOPHY Erie Parks & Recreation strives to provide a positive, safe, and fun environment to allow children of all skill levels the opportunity to play. We hope to create an environment that balances teamwork, commitment, hard work, sportsmanship and competition. We provide 2-3 contacts per week with enthusiastic parent volunteer coaches, and hope that at conclusion of the season that your child learned about the game, improved skills, and wants to play again. RECREATIONAL SPORTS AGE CLASSIFICATION For a majority of our leagues, we classify our league offerings by age. Unless otherwise noted in each program/ league’s description, the age calculation date for all youth sports programs/leagues will be September 30th of each year. »» »»

The “U” before the age number stands for “under” (e.g. U9 stands for ages under 9). The “U” after the age number stands for “and under” (e.g. 9U stands for ages 9 and under).

REGISTRATIONS Registrations for all leagues will be accepted from when the league’s registration opens through the registration deadline or until each league reaches maximum capacity, whichever comes first. League practice days, times and locations are subject to change. UNIFORMS All league fees include a game jersey or t-shirt depending on age. Additional items are not provided unless otherwise noted. Jersey colors are chosen at random, no requests will be accepted, and uniforms may not be altered in any way. INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEER COACHING? All teams are coached by parent volunteers. If you are interested in coaching, please contact volunteer@erieco.gov and we will respond within 5 business days. REQUIREMENTS? Volunteer coaches should have familiarity in the sport they are coaching and enjoy working with youth. In addition, volunteer coaches must complete a background screen and pass other league trainings as necessary before first contact.

OFFICIALS In general (varies depending on sport), leagues for children ages 8 and under are self-officiated by coaches and parent volunteers. Games for ages 9+ are officiated with a game official. Please remember to treat all officials with respect. COMPETITIVE SPORTS OFFERINGS It is against Erie Parks & Recreation Youth Sports Leagues policy for players to concurrently participate in/on any same sport competitive league/team during any part of our respective recreational sports season. By registering and participating in any of our youth sports leagues, you acknowledge that you and the participant are abiding by this policy. With that said, we understand that Erie Parks & Recreation sports leagues do not fit everyone’s needs. We have compiled the following list of local organizations if you are looking for a more competitive offering for your child. This list is not all-inclusive and is intended to provide a few options to begin your research.
