Designated athletic fields and informal fields in city park properties are permitted exclusively to two groups: 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 begin in February and end the first week of November.
While we continue to try and minimize the number of teams permitted on informal fields (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 in our inventory at various locations across the city including the tournament-ready Aurora Sports Park.
