Our recreational sports leagues are designed to help youth learn about staying active, gaining confidence, and developing positive character traits such as teamwork and sportsmanship.

FAQ


Coach Contact

Your child’s coach will contact you within 2 days following the set coaches meeting. Please note your coach's information for your records.


Practice Times

All practice times are chosen by our volunteer coaches at the coaches meeting after all registrations have come in. If you are unable to make the practice time that your volunteer coach schedules for you, please contact the SPARC office and we will try and accommodate your request and move your child to a different team if possible.

At Game Time

Please arrive with plenty of time for parking and locating the correct field/court. Games will start at the time listed on the game schedule.

Parent Expectations

Our goal is to encourage healthy spirit, mind and body for all...especially for your child. Behavior that is unsportsmanlike, unruly or interferes with the progress of the game does not help the child. Please help us be strong role models for all children. Our sport leagues are designed for them to develop and grow.


Weather & Make-up Games

For practice cancellations due to inclement weather, please contact your coach o If games are cancelled due to inclement weather, SPARC will contact head coach’s and your coach should contact all of their players. o If you do not hear from your coach, you may also call the SPARC Sports Hotline at 837-5737 for an update. The hotline will be updated at least one hour before the start of the first games. If there is not a current message, games are still running as scheduled. o Make-up games may be either scheduled on following Saturdays as double-headers or on week nights. Information about make-up games will be delivered to team coaches.

For a fun and rewarding experience, please consider coaching your child’s team. For the safety of the participants, all of our volunteer coaches go through a background check and are given ID badges.

Sportsmanship

Great sportsmanship is something that SPARC Sports hopes to instill in all of our participants, parents/guardians, coaches, staff, and spectators. Sportsmanship is a key virtue that can help youth in not only sports, but in school and life as well. We are all here for the kids to have fun and should make sure our emotions and desire to win do not impede on their right to have a happy and positive playing environment.

According to the National Alliance of Youth Sports, 70% of kids quit playing youth sports by the time they are 13 because it isn’t fun anymore. SPARC Sports wants to change that, but we can’t do it alone. We ask everyone, including participants, parents/guardians, coaches, staff, and spectators to play an active role in keeping the game fun and demonstrate great examples of sportsmanship.
