Youth Sports

Sports Partnerships in the Community

Plano Parks & Recreation allocates, prepares, and maintains recreational and competitive game fields used by youth sports organizations and coordinates their schedules to ensure they are used to maximum efficiency. Specific questions regarding sports sponsored by these organizations can be answered by contacting each organization:



Practice Fields

There are numerous parks in Plano that have open fields on which to practice. Backstops at elementary schools and in neighborhood parks are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are intended for casual athletic practices. View practice field locations.

Seasonal Drop-In Practice Program
A seasonal drop-in practice program exists to support youth soccer at several athletic-oriented park sites. These “drop-in” areas are available on a first-come, first-serve basis during the spring and fall sports seasons. The program is evaluated seasonally for continuation based on the following criteria: parking impact on park use and adjacent neighborhoods, litter, impact on scheduled athletic field use and compliance with park rules and local ordinances. Drop-in areas are closed if athletic fields are closed due to rain or wet conditions. View seasonal drop-in practice field locations and maps. To inquire about dates of operation for seasonal soccer drop-in areas, send an email to or call 972-941-5413. View seasonal drop-in practice field locations and maps.

Athletic Fields

All athletic fields must be reserved in advance through the Parks and Recreation office. Scheduling of these fields is necessary to help avoid conflicts with others wanting to use the fields, assure adequate parking for all activities, make sure restrooms are open and coordinate field and facility maintenance. The public reservation program allows Plano residents to reserve a field for sports that are currently in-season, if a field is available during hours of operation. Residents may schedule one field reservation for a single team to practice each week (Monday-Sunday) during the sports season. Users may set up an account at Plano Recreation Online. After creating an account, please contact our athletic staff at to obtain a free Athletic Field Rental Membership. An athletics staff member will contact you to go over the basic reservation rules and will send an email containing step-by-step instructions on how to reserve fields online.
