York County Parks and Recreation strives to offer youth team sports that teach fundamental skills, feature mandatory playing time for all, and promote character, fair play, and good sportsmanship. The league runs on the energy and dedicated efforts of its volunteer parents and other caring adults that take the lead as coaches and assistant coaches. Parents interested in coaching or assisting this year are encouraged to indicate that in the space provided on the registration form.
