Roanoke Parks and Recreation is seeking feedback for the Youth Athletics Refresh Project. This project affords the opportunity to reimagine the way youth athletics is offered and facilitated within the City of Roanoke. In past years, the Parks and Recreation Department has offered administrative support to community-based, volunteer recreation clubs that serve the City’s youth in traditional team sports. That administrative support ceased in Spring 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, prior to the pandemic, youth athletics participation had been steadily declining. In fact, Parks and Recreation has seen a 40% decrease since 2010. Moving forward, the department would like to reshape how youth team sports are administered to better serve our community.
