Youth Sports

Youth sports are one of the fastest growing recreation programs nationwide – and the same holds true for the City of Sparks. The Sparks Parks and Recreation Department has built a solid program through the years with a variety of leagues, clinics and camps designed to promote good sportsmanship, teamwork and skill development for children of all ages and abilities. 

Coming up –

New! SKILLS4SPORTS
A multi-sports program designed just for preschool children! The mission of Skills4Sports is to provide children with a positive introduction to the skills required to play sports with a focus on having fun. Skills developed include gross motor skills such as; agility, balance, hand to eye and feet to eye coordination and spatial awareness, transferable to a wide range of sporting situations. Each child will experience hands-on ball skills, including catching, throwing, kicking and general ball control. There’s also the opportunity to develop their social skills, communication, listening to instructions, and teamwork – all while being active, staying healthy and having fun!
