Designated athletic fields and informal fields in city park properties are permitted exclusively to city-sponsored programs and Independent Youth Sports Organizations (IYSO) within Aurora. IYSO's must follow city-issued guidelines in order to be recognized as a designated youth organization. Permits are issued every year beginning in February through the first week of November.
While we continue to try and minimize the number of teams permitted on informal fields (in public parks) as much as possible, the demand for practice fields continues to outpace the number of fields in our inventory. Additionally, teams without permits can, and do, use fields at our public parks at off-peak times. Teams with a field permit have priority over drop-in users.
If you have tournament needs, contact Paul Smith. Aurora has 27 tournament-quality fields at various locations across the city including the tournament-ready Aurora Sports Park.
