About Field Sports
Field sport is an integral part of life in Richmond
There are approximately 10,000 citizens participating in 29 organized sport groups plus 2,500 volunteers including coaches, managers, coordinators, and 17,500 spectators and supporters including parents, family and friends. This is roughly 18% of the Richmond population. There are over one million hours of participation in organized sport each year. These numbers do not include the heavy school use of community field sport facilities or the tremendous amount of casual field sport activity that takes place on the many parks in our active community.
Field sport provides opportunities for Richmond residents to "Live, Connect and Grow," all desired outcomes of the Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services Master Plan. Field Sport provides opportunities for participants to engage in healthy physical activity, connect and socialize with other community members and grow new skills, experiences, friendships and memories.
