The PWC Parks & Recreation staff is acutely aware of the skyrocketing national statistics on obesity. Adult obesity has doubled since the 1970’s, with the prevalence of childhood and adolescent obesity percentages at double to quadruple percentages during the same time frame. One contributing factor, according to the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition, may be that on average, children now spend more than seven and a half hours a day in front of a screen.The American Academy of Adolescent & Child Psychiatry notes that a positive experience with sports as a young child can have lasting effects that will help make for a more, well-rounded, well-adjusted adult.

As an active partner in our community’s Healthy Community Healthy Youth initiative, we take our responsibilities seriously. Currently, there are 38 registered leagues in Prince William County (youth and adult), representing 10 sports, with 31,442 active participants. Those numbers are increasing daily, through the emerging popularity of lacrosse, rugby and cricket!

Youth sports programming is offered year-round at five locations, Chinn Aquatics & Fitness Center, Sharron Baucom Dale City Rec Center, Lake Ridge Park, Locust Shade Park and Veterans Memorial Park.
