Brothers/Sisters who fall into the same age group may, upon request at the time of registration, have their forms submitted together and be placed on the same team. It is the parent or guardian's responsibility to notify the Park Department of their desire for the children to be placed on the same team. Special request for youth that are not brother and sister to be on the same team will not be allowed. If you have any questions or concerns about any youth sport please contact the Park office (573-624-8244) for further information. All youth sports will have a sign-up deadline.
