Summer League info - All City youth and adult summer sport programs begin practice June 15 with a maximum of 25 people per team, excluding coaches and referees. The sports office is prepared to support local public health contact tracing efforts if exposures to COVID-19 occur.

Spectators are strongly discouraged for adult sports. Spectators, like parents, are permitted for youth sports, as long as members from different households maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from each other.

Reservations from organized leagues, sport camps and outdoor camps will be accepted starting Monday, June 8, for outdoor recreation facilities, including fields and courts. A capacity of 25 people or less must be maintained per field. Parks’ staff will perform routine checks to help ensure public health guidance is being followed at its sport facilities.

Mission Statement

In pursuit of excellence in youth sports, we are committed to creating a positive environment for our youth’s participation in and enjoyment of recreational sports.

Program Philosophy

The City of Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department Youth Sports Program philosophy is to instill a positive attitude, sportsmanship, basic fundamentals, confidence, and high moral standards.  Youth Sports Programs develop the physical, psychological, and social aspects for youth.  Our programs emphasize participation, fun, sportsmanship, and promotes a non-competitive, recreational approach to sports.  Participants, parents, and coaches are expected to support this value system.
 
The City of Colorado Springs Youth Sports programs are designed to offer participants a variety of recreational sports leagues and activities in a safe, fun and well-supervised environment. We focus on the whole child through positive coaching, teamwork, sportsmanship, skill development, self-development, self-esteem, and socialization skills. Sports provides recreational activities to enhance and build positive recreational experiences and healthy lifelong habits. Youth Sports offers opportunities to play in leagues throughout the year. Because programs are so large, we register participants one to two months in advance.

Sports Internship

The purpose of the internship program is to provide the student with an opportunity to gain practical hands-on experience that is closely related to the student’s educational knowledge base. Youth and Adult Sports believes in a team philosophy and although the intern will be supervised by a designated full-time Sports staff member, the student will have the opportunity to work with multiple full-time Sports staff to understand various leadership styles and programs. In exchange, the City will receive valuable work contributions from creative, highly motivated recreation pre-professionals.
