Permit For Sports Field

This petition had 268 supporters

We are a youth football league in Queens that doesn't have a football field to call our own.  Currently we play on 2 baseball fields.  Field one has 2 fields and field 2 has another.  There are tennis courts that separate the 2 fields.  Field one is where our trailer is located that holds all of our equipment.  Currently half of field one is permitted to an adult softball league from 9am -2pm every Sunday.  We currently hold the permit for field 2 from 9am-2pm. Our president John McArdle tried negotiating with the Softball league to swap fields and even though the Parks Department said they had no issue with it, the softball league originally agreed to switch with  us but then turned us down because they wanted to bs closer to the bathrooms. These are grown men that are not willing to relocate their games to the other side of the park so a community youth sports league can utilize the entire field.  It's bad enough we don't have a football field to play on we should have to have half if our league on one field and the other half on another.  


Please sign our petition to show the Parks Department how important youth sports leagues are and thst the community has our back!
