Youth Athletic Program

The Palos Heights Parks and Recreation Department offers year round athletic programs for boys and girls age 3 and older. These programs include a basketball league for  1st-8th graders, indoor soccer, t-ball and coach pitch leagues, along with numerous camps and class in a variety of sports.

In summary, the Palos Heights Parks and Recreation Department will promote the philosophy of the National Alliance for Youth Sports:

“Better Sports for……Better Kids for Life.”

We use volunteer coaches for many programs throughout the year. These coaches are unpaid and do this job to give back to their community and children. We work with the coaches to give them the tools to help each individual participant reach their many goals.

Palos Heights Parks and Recreation partners up with many companies who specialize in youth athletic such as:

  • Chicago White Sox/Bulls Training Academy
  • Challenger British Soccer
  • Skyhawks Sports Academy
  • Silver Lake Country Club
  • T-USA Martial Arts
  • All Star Sports Instruction

For information on becoming a volunteer coach please call Joe at 708-361-1807

Concussion information

The Palos Heights Parks and Recreation Department takes head injuries very serious. We strive to educate our volunteer coaches, parents, and particpants whenever possible. As a parent of a child who plays youth sports please take few minutes to familiarize yourself with current information on concussions from the Center for Disease Control's Head's Up website.
