As County Executive, Angela Alsobrooks will provide greater support and funding for youth sports in Prince George’s County.

“Youth sports instill the values of hard work, sacrifice, and dedication in our young people. They simultaneously strengthen the fabric of our community as they bring parents, families and friends together. As County Executive, I will insist on a comprehensive plan for well funded and organized youth sports, including existing programs, that prioritizes children, parents, coaches, & volunteers.

-Angela Alsobrooks

Angela Alsobrooks for Prince George's County Executive

Angela’s Plan:

 

  • Substantially increase funding to existing community youth sports organizations.
  • Centralize and streamline scheduling of all Prince George’s County publicly-owned fields, facilities and gyms. Let’s put an end to the frustrating and disorganized facility scheduling of the public school system.
  • Create and maintain a central database and website of all sports organizations, leagues, boys & girls clubs, & teams in the county so parents can easily find opportunities for their children.
  • Create close partnerships between our county’s youth sports organizations, the University of Maryland and Bowie State University.
  • Diversify sports offerings across the county to include all collegiate scholarship sports that are currently not widely available–lacrosse, volleyball, field hockey, swimming, etc.
  • Dedicate fundraising personnel to assist youth athletic organizations with foundation grant applications and other fundraising.
  • Seek public private partnerships to build more high quality indoor and outdoor sports facilities in Prince George’s County.
