Youth Sports

Let’s get moving and active! Whether you want to learn the basics of a new sport or continue playing one you already enjoy – we have lots of sports programs every season for all ages. More than 2,000 kids participate across ten youth sports including baseball, softball, golf, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, and more!

Through role modeling and caring instruction by coaches and staff, all participants and parents will be shown how to put winning into proper perspective. Not only will your child learn sports skills, but they will also develop valuable life tools.

Thinking about coaching?

Valpo Parks offers free registration for one (1) child upon a parent or guardian head-coaching their team. To receive the free registration, the following must be true: 

  • Must be done by calling the front desk while registering.
    • Any coach who signs up online will NOT receive a discount for coaching.
  • Must be available for 80% of the seasons scheduled games and practices.
  • Must be a head coach to get the discount; there is not discount for assistant coaches at this time.
  • Coaches will receive resources and instruction through a coaching clinic prior to the season start date (if they would like to participate).

*Please note that coaches reserve the right to pick their own practice days based on the availability of the majority of the team. Once rosters are set and uniforms are ordered, we will not be able to move teams for any reason.

Call our office to discuss how you can get started on your coaching journey today and begin making a difference for the youth in your community.

Youth Sports Refund Policy:

  • To be eligible for a refund, cancellations must be requested a minimum of seven (7) days before the published registration deadline.
  • Cancellations within seven (7) days of the registration deadline will not be refunded.
  • Refunds will be distributed back to the participant through a check in the mail. This process takes 4 – 6 weeks.
    • A $15.00 service charge for processing all cancellations will apply unless the Valpo Parks and Recreation Department cancels a program due to low enrollment.
