Henderson, Nev. – City of Henderson Parks and Recreation has received the Better Sports for Kids Quality Program Provider designation for 2020/21 from the National Alliance for Youth Sports.

Earning this designation demonstrates that Henderson has taken steps to ensure a safe, quality playing environment for children. Parks and Recreation staff have proven they meet key requirements in five categories: written policies and procedures, volunteer screening, coach training, parent education, and accountability. Henderson has received this designation each year since the program's inception in 2018.

“Henderson recognizes we must actively demonstrate that we are providing youth sports programs of the highest standard,” said Shari Ferguson, director of Parks and Recreation. “Parents have many choices when it comes to youth sports, so the Better Sports for Kids Quality Program Provider designation can give parents confidence in our programs, and let them know that their child is in the best place possible to learn, compete and have fun in sports.”

The National Alliance for Youth Sports, a nonprofit organization headquartered in West Palm Beach, Fla., manages the designation that was developed around the National Standards for Youth Sports, a guiding resource originally published in 1987.
