City-Wide Youth Sports

**COVID-19 Update **


Until further notice, Seattle Parks and Recreation will hold basketball games on the weekend. As we work to keep everyone healthy, we ask that you please keep in mid the following as you consider your child's participation this weekend:  

  • Please keep your players home if they are sick.
  • Please have any family member who is sick stay home.
  • If you or any family members who plan to attend are in a high-risk group for contracting illness (i.e. over 60, or have an underlying health condition) please stay home.
  • We are also asking that we minimize congregation, so please keep your child's fan club small (only 1-2 fans), arrive only in time for your child's game and/or wait in your car until your child's game time. We ask that you only attend your child's game to minimize crowd size.

We know that these events are important to you and your family, but we want everyone to stay healthy. If some members of your family are not able to attend, you can always video tape the game and send it to loved ones.   Finally, as always, please practice good hygiene by asking all members of your family to wash your hands before entering the gym, and wash your hands again as you leave.   Thank you for your support and understanding!

Seattle Parks and Recreation's City-wide Athletics division provides diverse seasonal opportunities for youth to participate in sports in an environment that fosters sportsmanship, skills, and passion. 

Spring Youth Sports

Summer Sports Camps

Our FREE sports camps offer a fun and positive experience for your child's inner athlete. We will divide kids into groups based on age/ability level, and have a great time working on age-appropriate fundamentals that will incorporate fun competitions, games, races and scrimmages. Our camps are designed for kids ranging from the very beginner to the seasoned athlete. All kids can expect to improve their skill level! Please bring a sack lunch, snacks, water bottle, sunscreen and dress appropriately for the weather (layers). Space is limited in these camps so register early. E-13 and signed concussion form due at registration and must be sent to the Youth Athletics office.  Watch this page for future updates about camp schedules.
