Overview of Youth Sports Program
On August 6, 2012, the Fuquay-Varina Town Board voted in favor of a recommendation to start a recreational youth sports program administered by the Parks & Recreation Department. The Town views youth sports as an extension of an already successful recreation program which currently offers a full range of recreational programming.
The inaugural season of the Youth Sports program began in fall 2012 with over 300 participants registered for basketball resulting in 7 divisions and 33 teams and a Varsity and Junior Varsity Dance Troupe.
In early January 2013, the Town will begin registration for the spring sports program which includes t-ball, baseball, softball, volleyball, soccer and flag football. All sports will be played at town-owned fields and facilities. See individual sports for specific information.
Our vision of a town youth sports program is one that teaches sportsmanship, fair-play, new skills and builds character through competition in a safe and fun environment. We will focus on the whole child through positive coaching, teamwork, sportsmanship, skill development, self-esteem, personal development, and socialization skills. Our goal is to provide recreational activities to enhance and build positive recreational experiences and healthy lifelong habits.

The cost to participate is $40/sport for in-town residents; and $65/sport for non-residents. Due to the equipment needs, tackle football has an additional $20 for both residents and non-residents. There is no association fee. Financial assistance is available for both residents and non-residents.
Registration for spring sports will begin on January 7, 2013. Complete a Registration Form and return it to the Community Center located 820 S. Main Street or Register Online.
Weather updates can be found on the Town’s website under Current Field Conditions. Any updates or closings for inclement weather will be updated to the website by 4:00pm. You may also call the Community Center at 919-552-1430.
