Youth Sports

The goal of our athletics program is to provide an enjoyable experience for each youth participant while developing character, sport-related skills, sportsmanship and promoting goodwill among all teams and individuals. Although sports are competitive by nature, the City of Salem Parks and Recreation Department's intentions are to place less emphasis on winning, while promoting the foundation for a lifetime of physical activity and good health for each participant.

Youth Spring Sports will run Tuesday, December 25 through Sunday, February 4.
