Workgroup to evaluate District Affiliates

Application deadline April 15

THPRD invites community members to apply for a new Stakeholders Work Group to review THPRD’s affiliate policy and application process. Members will provide input to staff in developing proposals to make the process more equitable. The work group will also evaluate the impacts of any recommended changes.

Affiliates are groups that organize youth and adult sports such as soccer, lacrosse, and baseball. Affiliates represent both recreational and competitive sports. The results of the work group will help inform how decisions are made for adding new sports users and how fields, sport courts, and pools are allocated and prioritized.

Applicants should expect to attend monthly meetings, starting in May through the winter of 2022. Applications are due by April 15, 2021. Applications are available on the district’s website. Please apply online using the link on this page by April 15.
