City Announces New Fees for Youth Sport Participants
Effective January 1, 2009
Effective January 1, 2009, the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities will be increasing fees as planned in Fee Resolution No. 2276, adopted by City Council on May 13, 2008. Fee Resolution No. 2276 provided for a $5 increase in registration fees for youth sports activities fully operated by the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities. Fees will increase from $20 to $25 per sport, per registrant. The Department will continue to provide scholarships to families and children to ensure all interested youth who cannot afford the fees may participate at a reduced rate or at no charge.
The resolution also authorized the Department to charge a $5 field use fee per person, per sport, per season for all other youth leagues. This fee provides a portion of cost recovery for field maintenance expenses.
