Athletic Guidelines

The City of Longview Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) offers a variety of adult athletic team sports: softball, flag football, basketball, and coed kickball. PARD accepts team registrations but does not form teams for the various sports. Individuals seeking to be placed on a team may contact the athletic office, 903-237-1268 and be added to a free agent list which is made available to the coaches.

Teams inquiring about daily schedules or rainouts may call 903-237-1118.

To sign up for a sport, the coach will fill out a registration packet. All forms, including the team registration form, coaches agreement, and roster and waiver must be 100% complete and turned in to the PARD office at the time of registration. PARD will not accept incomplete registration packets. Payments are accepted in the form of cash, cashier's check, money order, company check, personal check or by credit card and may be made at the Parks and Recreation Office during regular business hours 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday Friday. Credit card payments can be accepted by telephone, but the team's registration packet must be in the office before the payment will be processed. Forms must be turned in at the PARD Office, 130 E. Timpson St., or faxed, 903-237-1389. Teams must submit a new roster for each season.

PLEASE NOTE: any and all registration forms must be in the PARD office by the set time and deadline, this will include any forms that are mailed to the PARD office. FORMS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED IF THEY ARE SUBMITTED TO ANOTHER CITY OFFICE.
