Youth Sports

Mission Statement

The Maine Recreation and Park Association philosophy on youth sports is to maintain an enriched quality of life for Maine youth through creative and meaningful sports and leisure experiences and to form a harmonious relationship between sports, people, and their environment.

MRPA promotes the benefits of youth sports to provide fun, active, and educational experiences, intended to support the healthy development for children and to serve as a positive outlet for parents to connect with their young athlete.

Youth sports provide opportunities for children to create lifelong positive physical activity habits, improve social skills and have confidence in their abilities to succeed.  MRPA measures success by the positive development of youth through sport.
