Every day, we hear about how young people are not as active as they should be. So at the Park Ridge Park District, we make it our business to get kids moving. Our Youth and Teen Athletics programs provide structured experiences for boys and girls of all ages to develop fundamental skills and basic game knowledge. Best of all, we promote teamwork, a positive attitude and a healthy lifestyle, while fostering a lifelong love of sports.
