Upcoming Recreational Sports Registration Periods
We want your team on our team!

 

We have championship play for ages 3 through 93.

Three through six year olds are offered Pee Wee Sports programs in soccer and basketball at both Pioneer-Columbus and Robert L. Scott-Four Mile Community Centers every fall and winter, as well as an outdoor soccer program in the Spring played at James W. Cownie Soccer Complex.   Parent coaches and staff help teach basic skills and how to be a team member, in each sport.  Parents and grandparents, get ready to laugh, you can’t miss these camera moments.

We have a league for your team in our Boys’ and Girls’ Youth Basketball program.  Each division plays a twelve game league schedule, including a season ending city tournament.  Yes, “March Madness” is in the youth basketball world. Our program receives many compliments about the organization and overall quality of play. Make your weekend full of game time fun.

Who’s #1; Des Moines Parks and Recreation’s Adult Sports Leagues, that’s who!!!  Men’s, Women’s and Coed teams register every year for Softball (Spring, Summer & Fall), Flag Football and Basketball leagues. Enjoy friendly competition and a night out with family and friends, while getting that healthy workout. Just when you think you lost it, you’ll quickly realize you still have it…send me in coach, I’m ready to play.

NEW leagues have formed for Adult Wiffle Ball, both outdoor and indoor, as well as Pee Wee Indoor Wiffle Ball.  An old time favorite is making a comeback with our Adult Kickball League and our Adult Bags League is keeping in step with the latest hot trend.
