Youth Sports

The Harrisburg Parks and Recreation Department offers a variety of year-round opportunities for children interested in youth sports.

Sports are offered in a supportive, family-friendly environment that focuses on sportsman-like conduct and fun. We put the children’s experience and education of the sport at the forefront of all youth sport league goals.

We pride ourselves on having the best volunteers in the area that coach our youth sports teams. Our volunteers understand player education and that experience far outweighs the numbers in the win/loss column. The sign of a great coach and great league is the number of children that return year after year to the program.
