About Youth Athletics

Youth athletics in Cobb are conducted by volunteer organizations that use Cobb facilities for practices and games. The Recreation Coordinators within the Departments "Operations Division"  oversee these organizations. If you wish to become involved in an activity, please call or e-mail the association of your choice. 

The Recreation Coordinators  work directly with volunteer organizations to provide quality youth and adult recreation programs in department facilities. These organizations offer a variety of activities from traditional athletics to specialized programs such as BMX racing and radio controlled airplanes. Each organization operates independently with a board of directors, program budget, and all are non-profit. The Recreation Coordinators serve as a liaison with these programs through the allocation of seasonal park-use agreements. 

Volunteer organizations that provide programs in Cobb County Parks agree to abide by the rules set forth by the department and Cobb County.  These policies and procedures are set forth in the Park User Handbook. To find contact information on all volunteer groups, you can download the following list of organizations:
