The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) is fortunate to have volunteers who execute youth sports programs on behalf of the City. In this unique partnership, the City of Austin supplements water and electricity in order to maintain quality athletic fields and facilities. Youth sports organizations provide staff and volunteers to organize, plan and administer outstanding youth sports programs. Together, this team ensures that wholesome, healthy and enjoyable recreation activities are available to literally thousands of youth within the city limits of Austin.
Since the City provides valuable assets that are funded by tax paying citizens, Organizations must be prepared to provide their services in agreement with existing PARD policies, ordinances and good business practices. In addition, there may be times when the city is asked to become involved in issues related to organization operations. In these instances, the Organizations must be prepared to cooperate with the Parks and Recreation Department or the City Council to resolve issues in cases not specifically covered by this agreement. The Organization agrees to provide a RECREATIONAL youth sports program as a service for the City.
