Parks and Rec Sports Programs

Community youth sports leagues focus on the basics. Children who play sports learn critical skills such as friendly competition, respect, and teamwork. Since these programs stress the importance of knowing the fundamentals, scoring solutions can be an excellent educational tool.

Conversely, adult parks and rec sports leagues are more competitive and offer a chance to stay physically active. Some parks and recreation departments might benefit from upgrades, accessories, and add-ons to fuel the adult league competitive spirit.


Often, parents register their kids for the local soccer team at an early age. When children as young as three years old participate in a community soccer program, they can exert energy as they learn how to dribble, pass, shoot, and more. As they grow older, coaches can leverage the scoreboard as a visual aid when explaining how the game works.

Parks and recreation youth soccer leagues can benefit from the following scoring solutions:

T-Ball and Slow-Pitch Softball

Children involved in T-ball learn basics such as hitting, catching, throwing, and running bases. As kids grow older and transition into more competitive T-ball or coach pitch leagues, they learn more detailed aspects of the game. Scoring solutions such as the following can help youth parks and rec T-ball players learn:

  • Basic scoreboards that indicate the score, inning, balls, strikes, and outs
  • Inning-by-inning scoreboards that display the runs scored by each team every inning
  • Pitch-count displays that show how many pitches each team throws
  • Intelligent caption™ scoreboards with customization capabilities
  • Handheld baseball and softball controllers to easily show how scoring works

Many communities also offer men’s, women’s, and co-ed slow-pitch softball leagues to give adults a chance to relieve stress and remember their glory days. Since adult sports leagues are more competitive than youth programs, accessories and add-ons such as pitch count and speed indicators can elevate game days.


Passing, setting, hitting, serving, and basic rotations are standard fundamentals of volleyball that children learn in parks and recreation leagues. Multi-sport, intelligent caption™ scoreboards are an excellent choice for youth and adult league volleyball, in addition to the following:

Track & Field

Community youth track & field programs teach children the difference between different races, the importance of staying in your lane, passing the baton, how to triple or long jump, and more. It gives kids the opportunity to determine their strengths. Scoring solutions to help educate include:


The majority of parks and recreation departments offer youth basketball leagues. Children learn how to play as a team in addition to essential skills like dribbling, shooting, passing, and playing defense. Community centers offering local youth sports can utilize scoring solutions such as:

  • Single-sided basketball scoreboards that display a range of information, from the score, quarter, time, and possession to fouls and player number
  • Electronic Team Names to customize team name for every team that plays at the facility
  • Portable basketball scoreboards like the Model 750 for tournament days
  • Scorers tables for the scorekeeper and other record-keeping volunteers
  • Handheld basketball controllers for easy scorekeeping

Adult basketball leagues are typically much more competitive than youth programs. Therefore, accessories like the following can elevate game days:


Parks and recreation youth programs frequently start children in floor hockey before transitioning to ice. While on the floor, children learn skills such as passing, dribbling, shooting, stick-checking, and more. As they become more comfortable with the basics, they learn the basics of skating and put the two together. Nevco’s hockey scoreboards and add-ons can help:


Parks department aquatics are a popular option for kids. It keeps them physically active and allows them to have fun simultaneously.
