Competition For Athletic Fields And Facilities

Competition For Athletic Fields And Facilities

With growing numbers of children and adults joining sports leagues, the competition for a place to play is fierce. Kojo explores local efforts to share limited field space among leagues, schools and the public.

From lacrosse to soccer, football to ice hockey, recreational sports leagues for children and adults are thriving in our region. The result is stiff competition for a place to play. We explore the growing demand for athletic fields and facilities, and examine local efforts to balance the needs of sports leagues, school teams and individuals for limited public resources.
