The Grand Prairie Parks and Recreation Department offers many sports leagues, clinics, and classes that focus on fundamentals, principals, rules, and sportsmanship.

Sports are a great way for youth to learn teamwork, and develop a healthy sense of competitiveness. Not to mention sports give youth the opportunity to strengthen their bodies, and develop into healthy young men and women.

Browse through our current "Life is Grand" magazine on the classes page to see a complete list of programs.
